OrangeReviewStarAfter training at the Culinary Institute of America and at several well-known New York City restaurants, chef Goodman opened Puddin', a sweet shop specializing in decadent pudding desserts. Written with recipe developer Sussman (who worked on Ellie Krieger's best seller The Foods You Crave: Luscious Recipes for a Healthy Life), her debut cookbook is remarkably versatile. For example, Desperate Measures Mint Chip Pudding, thickened with cornstarch and egg yolks, can be served plain or frozen into pudding pops. Other flavors (e.g., tapioca, Nutella, vegan peanut butter) can be paired with one of many homemade toppings and easily scaled to feed a crowd.
VERDICT Some of these recipes require patience, but they're worth it. A superb single-subject dessert cookbook.
