The rest of the book is full of over 70 tempting recipes including classics such as Tarte Tatin, Pavlova and Chocolate Mousse; comfort food heaven - Sticky Toffee Pudding, Chocolate Chip Cookies and Apple and Toffee Muffins; old favourites including Spicy Plum Crumble, Ginger Parkin and Lemon Meringue Pie; and traditional recipes for Summer Pudding, Lardy Cake, Junket Ice Cream and Kentish Pudding Pie. He also creates a delicious selection of confections which are destined to become firm favourites including White Chocolate Ice cream, Whisky and Croissant Butter Pudding, Raspberry and Vodka Terrine, Chocolate Cola Cake and Fig Fritters. Along with lavish photography of finished dishes, James shares his trademark secrets for making every mouthful one to savour. This book covers everything you need to know to make a memorable ending to any meal, or just a delectable dish to satisfy your sweet-tooth.
