Product Details


"It is fate, really. Simply team up two Portland, Oregon, fruit experts–an award-winning chef turned farm-to-school food coordinator, and a baker known for her glorious handcrafted goods–and a must-have new little cookbook appears: Rustic Fruit Desserts by Cory Schreiber and Julie Richardson. . . . . This cookbook, a true collaboration, is a reflection of the passion they share for Oregon’s amazing variety of seasonal fruits and the respect they have for the small growers who farm in a sustainable way. . . . The genius of this work lies in Schreiber’s playful fruit combinations and Richardson’s mastery of doughs and spices to complement them."


Rustic Fruit Desserts embodies the modern wisdom about how to cook delicious food: make it fresh, local, and seasonal. As someone who’s always loved desserts with fruit and, who, like Julie, has New England roots, I also applaud the book’s mouthwatering taxonomy, which distinguishes between grunts, slumps, buckles, crisps, cobblers, and pandowdies.”

–Sara Moulton, host of Sara’s Weeknight Meals and executive chef of Gourmet

“Finally, all of my favorite kinds of dessert in one place! From warm berry buckles and crumbly crisps to boozy bread pudding, Rustic Fruit Desserts will help you bake your way through the best of the bounty.”

–David Lebovitz, author of The Sweet Life in Paris and The Perfect Scoop
