Inman gives new meaning to shelter from the storm. This enticing cookbook grew out of her desire to spend cold winter days next to a hot stove. The result is a collection of recipes for real people using readily available ingredients in their home kitchens. Sometimes basic and familiar, like Apple Cider Doughnuts sometimes slightly exotic, like Chocolate Pomegranite Pavlova sometimes elegant, like Salted Dark Chocolate Tart with Pistachios, Wintersweet will provide many happy afternoons in the kitchen.
Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight
This book is the gem of the pack...wonderful, craveable, sweet, hearty, and most of all executable recipes that make me almost pull for a dinner party in a snowstorm... The book is lavish. Lovely layout, happy finger-feel pages that invite you to settle into the world of Wintersweet, page by page, fabulous toothsome recipe by recipe. Buy this book for yourself. And on a cold, wintry, don't-go-out-night, have a dinner party with a menu crowned by one of these recipes, and invite in all the neighbors. They'll come cold and hungry.”

I bought copies for my mother and sister - they both raved. My mother made the lemon bars and my uncle (who formally prided himself on his own lemon bars) said these were the best he'd ever had.
Today is a snow day so with the kids home all day, it seemed time to bake. Wintersweet is our new "go to" cookbook. My son (age 10) picked the quark coffee cake (we sub'd sour cream) and he helped make it. My only issue is the second to last line which says "cool before serving" - what? With all that delicious smelling cinnamon? We couldn't wait and ate it hot.
I had some left over pears so I also made the pear sorbet. It was my first time - I shied away because of the wine which I thought the kids wouldn't like - but the alcohol cooks out and it tastes amazing! So thanks again Tammy.
Anyway, the recipes. The beet and ginger ice creams represent fascinating changes of pace, the Mexican chocolate cake (with ground almonds in place of flour) is perfect for my gluten-allergic sister, the chocolate chip cheesecake bars scream Christmas, and the book is worth the sales price alone for introducing quince to our palates.
The cooking tips are well presented and cleverly written. The photos pop. And the book fills a niche for a season, region, and class of ingredients that have gotten short shrift. Highly recommended!
