Before Alison Roman made recipes so perfect that they go by one name–The Cookie, The Pasta, The Lemon Cake–she was a restaurant pastry chef who spent most of her time studying flavor, technique, and precision. With Sweet Enough, Roman applies her experience to create a book for people who think they don’t have the time or skill to pull off dessert, with recipes geared towards those without fancy equipment or specialty ingredients.
Roman shows how to make rustic and simple yet sublime sweets with her trademark casualness, from effortless cakes that take just minutes to get into a pan to tips for throwing your own sundae party. She offers new, instant classics with a signature Roman twist including salted lemon pie, hot buttered rum pudding, caramelized maple tart, seedy breakfast cake, and cinnamon sandies. With over 85 intentionally simple recipes, Sweet Enough is perfect for both dedicated bakers and those who don’t think of themselves as bakers.
Roman is the author of the New York Times bestselling cookbooks Nothing Fancy and Dining In and is the creator of the YouTube series “Home Movies.”
