Waterstones Says

The perfect addition to any kitchen, The Last Bite celebrates the art of constructing the perfect dessert with magnificent taste and texture, whether you’re in the mood for a light almond and fig cake or a rich elderflower custard.

First and foremost, make it delicious. Your goal is to make even those who 'don't do desserts' lick their plate clean - it has to be delicious from first to last bite.

In this revolutionary book, award-winning pastry chef Anna Higham encourages you to approach creating a dessert as you would do savoury cooking: by engaging your senses, tasting, seasoning, and letting your ingredients shine.

Exploring key ingredients season by season, Anna helps you to really understand the "how" and "why" of dessert cooking, showing you how to work with fruit, grains, fats and chocolate, how to construct a dessert, and how to interrogate seasoning, structure, and texture to magnify flavour and taste.

Featuring more than 150 innovative and inspiring recipes for bakes, tarts, jams, mousses, meringues, ice creams and more, and over 40 plated seasonal desserts, from a light almond and fig cake in the autumn months to a rich elderflower custard in spring, The Last Bite celebrates a whole new approach to modern desserts.
