2013 Gift Guide
#HH2013 Cookbook – Modern Art Desserts Gift Guide 2013
Modern Art Desserts is the brainchild of Caitlin Freeman, Blue Bottle’s head pastry chef. After years spent crafting unique and delicious pastries in the SFMOMA’s Rooftop Garden Cafe, she’s collected her recipes into one user-friendly guide.
Taking cues from modern art’s most revered artists, the book’s 27 show-stopping desserts exhibit the charm and sophistication of works by Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Henri Matisse, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Avedon, Wayne Thiebaud, and more.
If you have an art lover in your life, I am confident they would appreciate this book as a Holiday Gift. Modern Art Desserts showcases delectable treats inspired by incredible artists and famous works of art. Best of all? Modern Art Desserts gives you step-by-step instructions on making your own mini works of art.
One of my absolute favorite artists is Roy Lichtenstein. He took the comic book style to a completely new level. His work is instantly recognizable with the dotted features and pop-art colors. Yes, there is a cake for that!
I am so eager to make some of the elegant treats showcased in this book. Since every year I have a dessert party with some family and friends it will be a perfect time to use the ideas and recipes in Modern Art Desserts.
You can find the book Modern Art Desserts by Caitlin Freeman anywhere books are sold, or online at Blue Bottle Coffee and Amazon.com.
