Hello! Hi! How are you? In just a couple of weeks, my book Sweeter off the Vine, will be out in the world and hopefully shortly after that it will be on your kitchen counter covered in flour, butter, and fruit splatters. It is scary and surreal that the publication day is almost here, and it is hard to put into words the crazy feelings I am feeling right now, but mostly I am excited and thankful that March 22nd is just around the corner! I am also SO very excited to share this video that Pete made over the last year with you today. It really shows what the book is all about - my very favorite topic - luscious fruit desserts. We filmed everywhere from our crooked kitchen in Brooklyn to some of my favorite farms in Upstate New York and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I hope you love this peek into the book, and some of my favorite recipes!
This collection of recipes truly highlights what is best at the market, all year round - from Spring’s juicy strawberries (pistachio pound cake with strawberries in lavender sugar) and cherries (cherry and chocolate turnovers with spelt puff), through Summer's incredible abundance (spelt and roasted stone fruit shortcakes, raspberry pink peppercorn sorbet, currant and gooseberry buckle), Fall’s quiet bounty (pear pie with crème fraiche caramel, caramelized apple fritters), and Winter’s bright citrus (gingery lime posset, tangerine cream pie) there is a little something for everyone!
Some advance copies have made their way out into the world. Check #sweeteroffthevine on Instagram to see some more sneak peeks! I'll be back soon with more information about a launch party and some event dates (some on the west coast too!) and I'll add them to the BOOK tab above as soon as they are confirmed.
