I just published a review of Ina Garten’s new book Cooking for Jeffrey (Clarkston Potter; $35) in the Detroit Jewish News.
The book cover is a sweet photo of Garten and Jeffrey with one of his favorite desserts. The Devil’s Food Cake with Coffee Meringue Buttercream is a “showstopper,” according to Garten, who loves the combination of moist chocolate cake and the light buttercream frosting — although the Pecan Rum Raisin Ice Cream and the Chocolate Creme Brulee look equally scrumptious. The book’s dedication sums up the premise: “For Jeffrey, who makes everything possible.”
Here is a link which features recipes for perfect potato pancakes and the most Googled brisket recipe ever.
