Nancy Silverton’s Pastries from the La Brea Bakery

by Nancy Silverton

For home cooks wanting more on the slightly sweet side, Nancy Silverton’s Pastries from the La Brea Bakery is the follow-up to the popular Breads from the La Brea Bakery.

In Silverton’s own words: “The pastries we make are deliciously simple and rustic and never too sweet…woven into many of them are my favorite flavors: butter, cinnamon, nuts, and fruit. They’re familiar, uncomplicated, and satisfying. One taste and you’re instantly comforted. Inspired by a sweet memory from childhood, a European classic, or a time-honored bakeshop standard, they are flavors you never tire of. Like my bread, these are pastries you want to eat every day.”

This book delivers on her promise with a diverse collection of 150 recipes for home-style, rustic treats such as Brownies with Irish Whisky and Currants, Asparagus-Egg Pie with Potato Crust, Belgian Sugar Pie, Jelly Doughnuts, and Rosemary Corncakes. These are not overly fussy, show-off desserts, these are the sticky-fingers, messy-faces variety that are so much more forgiving to bake and a pleasure to eat anytime.
