Drawing her inspiration from around the globe, Belinda Jeffery has gathered more than 100 new recipes for desserts and sweet treats using her favourite ingredients: berries, pears, peaches, citrus fruit, rhubarb, apricots, tropical fruit, apples, nuts, honey, caramel, coffee, tea - and, of course, chocolate.
Take a trip to the Middle East with sweet saffron and cardamom-scented yoghurt, a sojourn in Paris with pine nut, almond and sour cherry tart, a spell in Sicily with lemon cassata semi-freddo, or simply enjoy the bounty of an Australian summer with mango, passionfruit and mascarpone trifle.
On grey days, seek solace in pear and maple syrup crumble or rhubarb and white chocolate tartlets. And let's face it, no excuse is ever needed to indulge in a slice of black velvet chocolate tart or a pistachio meringue with green tea cream.
With Belinda's Desserts in your kitchen, you'll always have the perfect ending to any meal - or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up
