Desserts featuring peaches, pears and plums are not uncommon, but here you'll discover interesting new possibilities including Sautéed Pear Halves in Maple Syrup and Peach and Chocolate Parfait.
Each recipe has been tested and adapted for home use. For presentation and serving ideas, full-colour photographs, shot on location, show the dishes just as they are served to guests.

Reviews

Praise for the Flavours series:
"The series presents Maritime cooking as unique, yet equal to the best that's available from leading-edge gourmet hot-spots like New York.
The books are big on appearances. Fine-food presentation is an art, the authors say, and the generous use of full-colour photography throughout the book reinforce their contention that presentation is one of the main ingredients in a recipe's durability.
The books are beautiful--the coffee-table books of the cookbook genre.
The recipes are intriguing and ... respect for the regional foods is unmistakable."
Janet Arnett, Canadian Book Review Annual
