Here it is finally!

The dessert cookbook “Got Cheese?” will be released at the very popular Hong Kong Book Fair on the 21st of July. (Click here for the details of the fair)

The book is about the usage of cheeses in dessert making. Using fresh cheeses like mascarpone, ricotta, quark, but also a few other matured cheeses making the desserts really interesting to discover.  The recipes are easy to follow and simple enough to reproduce at home, even for the beginners!

Amongst others is a beautiful cherry cheesecake (made from your own cream cheese!) and a good dozen of warm desserts so dearly loved by children (and grown up too!)

The book has five recipes for making your own fresh cheeses to be used in dessert making. For example, you can produce your own ricotta to make a beautiful warm Ricotta and Orange Pudding (one of my favorite!!).

There is a general reaction from people when they know the book is about cheeses in desserts. People are afraid of smelly cheese taste in desserts, but rest assured that these dessert will not deceive you!

The book is fore-worded by Bernard Antony (Cheese Master in Alsace, France – supplier of cheese to our 3 michelin stars French Restaurant Caprice) and from Jeremy Evrard (Cheese expert and Caprice Restaurant Manager)

Here are a few photos from the book, for your eyes only!
