Reviews
One part unconventional memoir to two parts nontraditional cookbook.--Hugh Merwin
Brooks Headley has written the most entertaining cookbook in memory....It's a game changer.--Anthony Bourdain
Fancy Desserts is not what you expect of a cookbook. Then again, Brooks is not what you expect of a pastry chef. His dessert is the stuff of legend. It is counterintuitive but beautiful; confounding but delicious. Relinquish control: read this and you will almost instantly understand. Fair warning: Paul Reubens is pictured in this cookbook.--Mario Batali
Fancy Desserts is a visceral and attitudinal and gustatory joy-ride, an exhilarating few laps around a 4 star kitchen in a beat up obscure punk rocker's tour van. And Brooks Headley is as devoted to the sweet joy as he is to the hard ride of excellence in the pastry kitchen.--Gabrielle Hamilton
