Subtitle: The Recipes of del Posto's James Beard Award-Winning Pastry Chef

A dessert cookbook and portrait of an unconventional dessert maker.

While other chefs paid dues on restaurant lines and at cooking schools, Brooks Headley was in the back of a tour van as a drummer in much-loved punk bands that never made a dime. Now executive pastry chef at New York's Del Posto restaurant, Headley creates unorthodox recipes that echo his unconventional background: fruit is king, vegetables are championed, acidity is key, and simplicity is the goal.
