New Orleans comes alive in DamGoodSweet, a dessert cookbook devoted to the pastries and sweets of the New Orleans region, written by New Orleans-bred pastry chef David Guas and food writer Raquel Pelzel. Part travelogue, part memoir, and all cookbook, the 50 tempting recipes are supported with stories of family, famous restaurants, old haunts, and growing up in the region. DamGoodSweet will transport anyone from their home kitchen into the giant dessert gumbo that is New Orleans.
