"Brooks Headley has written the most entertaining cookbook in memory. And his desserts are as creative and delicious as his taste in music is impeccable. It's a game changer." -- Anthony Bourdain "When was the last time a cake recipe made you weep with laughter? Exactly. Brooks Headley-punk dude, vegetarian sympathizer, stealth genius, hero to all in the New York pastry world- has created something entirely new. It's a cookable memoir about his life in music and food (i.e., lots of time in basements), but not the kind they'll make a cute movie out of. And the art direction by Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin (of Eat Me: The Food & Philosophy of Kenny Shopsin notoriety) take the deadpan brilliance to another level." -- Christine Muhlke, executive editor, Bon Appetit "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 "One part unconventional memoir to two parts nontraditional cookbook." -- Hugh MerwinRezension:
