It’s Ready!


Today is the release of my newest book, Ready for Dessert—a hefty volume of my all-time favorite recipes!

Ready for Dessert

You’ll find everything I love in this book, from the Chocolate Chip Cookies that won over les Parisiens to a French inspired Apple-Frangipan Galette. I figured out the secret to truly chewy Peanut Butter Cookies, and frosted Black and Whites finally get their due. I riff on Gâteau Basque (okay, there are two riffs), there’s a cool and creamy Butterscotch Flan, and…at long last, the cookie recipe that I spent almost ten years perfecting.

However being an overachiever (in spite of what a therapist, or my editor, might say), I think we can do better. Like, a whole lot better. So just to remind you, here’s a list of a few bid items that you should hop over to the FirstGiving site and bid on immediately.

Or there is a super-awesome, easy-to-use Donation Widget that was just introduced which was so much fun to use, I dropped a few bucks myself.

So how about…..

cafebernachon bars

From the “You’d-have-to-be krazy-not-to-bid-on-this” file, a bar of Bernachon chocolate shipped to you once a month for a whole year? There’s only two places these very special bars of chocolate are available: at one shop in Paris, and at the Bernachon boutique in Lyon. Otherwise, forget it. Zip. Nada. You’re not getting any.

Well, except here. Or I should say “there”, because they’re gonna get shipped right to your door.

Bid item EU37

Italian Caffè

Speaking of chocolate, people always ask me, “Which country makes the best chocolate?” It’s a question where there just isn’t any answer. I mean, there’s nothing in the air particles or, say…the atmosphere in any particular country that makes their chocolate better or worse than the others.

Signed Collection of David’s Cookbooks: Menu for Hope 6

Have you been searching for copies of my first two cookbooks, Room for Dessert and Ripe for Dessert, only to find out that they’re now out of print?

David's Books

Released in 1999, Room for Dessert had recipes for over 100 of my favorite desserts. Ripe for Dessert followed the same winning formula for easy-to-follow recipes, with a focus on using fruit.

Both books were photographed by Michael Lamotte, and Room for Dessert was a finalist for the IACP Best Baking Book of the year.

So if you’ve been trying to get your hands on a copy, the search is over because I am offering as a bid item for Menu for Hope 6 a copy of each.

Room for Dessert & Ripe for Dessert by David Lebovitz

The publisher of my first two books, Room For Dessert and Ripe For Dessert is downsizing their cookbook division. Consequently many of their cookbooks will be unavailable shortly, including my first two books. If you’ve been pondering getting a copy, this may be your last chance.

Room For Dessert has the recipe for the ultimate Fresh Ginger Cake, Lindsey Shere’s recipe for Chocolate Pavé and lots more, and Ripe For Dessert has over a hundred recipes that feature fruit in all its guises, from summertime crisps and cobblers to healthy Cranzac Cookies studded with dried cranberries, gooey-topped Toffee-Plum Cake, Chocolate-Cherry Biscotti, and almond-rich Blackberry Financiers.

Perhaps they’ll become collectible, in which case I will be more than happy to say “I told you so” (which I love doing, btw). Or they’ll be re-introduced in another edition or format in the future.

I dunno.

But for the time being, they’re going…going…going

Me and Pam Anderson, Tonight On Fox

One of my favorite actresses, and the first lady of American theater, Pamela Anderson, has a new progam called ‘Stacked’ on Fox television wednesday nights. Starring alongside Pam (who plays a bookstore clerk), and prominently displayed behind her enormous talents, is Ripe For Dessert.
