Product Details


“Buy it, treasure it, stain the pages.”Food & Wine

“I couldn’t be more excited. . . . [Fleming’s] unfussily elegant sweets are interspersed with savory baking recipes as well—think cheddar-Stilton scones, sweet potato and miso rolls, pecan olive shortbread, kumquat tarte tatin. Delectable, indeed.”Saveur

“Fans of Claudia Fleming, the legendary pastry chef, have been waiting 21 years for a follow-up to her equally legendary first book, The Last Course. The wait was worth it: These recipes, the products of Fleming’s time in pandemic isolation, are a home baker’s fantasia.”Eater

“Fleming shifts her exacting attention from restaurant pastries to those she creates in her small home kitchen. . . . We’re excited.”Epicurious 

“Claudia Fleming’s first cookbook, The Last Course, is a cult classic among pastry chefs. . . . But I loved Delectable because it brings her classic, cozy sensibility to family-style breads, cakes, tarts, and some savory baking—the olive-and anchovy-rich escarole pie is a marvel, with a particularly light and flaky crust.”—Tejal Rao, The New York Times  

Delectable represents not just a new chapter in the pastry chef’s life and career, but also a homecoming.”The Washington Post

Delectable delivers a new suite of classics for the confident baker. . . . By combining a career’s worth of wisdom with her truly delectable recipes, Fleming has created yet another ambitious collection that will inspire for decades to come.”Air Mail (“The Best Holiday Baking Books”)

“With her show-stopping creations, this much-anticipated sophomore entry sees Fleming also bring her personal style and tendency toward seasonal ingredients to the table.”Tasting Table (“The 25 Best Cookbooks of 2022”)

“Sweet and savory baking from one of my favorite bakers in America.”—Andrew Zimmern
“Claudia is back . . . with a baking bang!”—David Lebovitz
“[The] baking book of the year.”—Jenny Rosenstrach

“Wonderful.”—Ruth Reichl, La Briffe

“Wave your whisks in celebration and fire up your mixers in joy, Claudia Fleming . . . is back!”—Dorie Greenspan, New York Times bestselling author of Baking with Dorie

“Claudia [Fleming] gives you the confidence that you can do it and that all will turn out well.”—Danny Meyer, New York Times bestselling author of Setting the Table

“Claudia moves seamlessly from the restaurant kitchen to the home kitchen with this collection of gorgeous, simple desserts and savory bakes. Delectable will surely inspire legions of home bakers.”—Claire Saffitz, New York Times bestselling author of Dessert Person

“Some heroes wear aprons and create magic with butter. Claudia Fleming . . . is a gift to every baker.”—Zoë François, author of Zoë Bakes Cakes
