Product Details


“Wave your whisks in celebration and fire up your mixers in joy, Claudia Fleming, who inspired so many of today’s great bakers, is back! This new book, which feels like a gift, is just as its title declares: ‘Delectable.’ The collection is signature Claudia—beautifully simple, elegant, and deeply satisfying. Delectable is a reason to rejoice!”—Dorie Greenspan, New York Times bestselling author of Baking with Dorie

“For nearly twenty years, Claudia Fleming’s legion of fans have been pleading for a follow-up to her debut cookbook The Last Course—now a treasured classic—and Delectable more than rewards us all for the wait. I dare you to thumb through the pages and not get extremely hungry and curious. Not only will you be tempted to eat every single tasteful recipe Claudia lovingly shares and describes, but perhaps more than any other book on baking I’ve seen, this one generously teaches you along the way, and 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 Fleming’s first book, The Last Course, has been both a touchstone and an unending source of inspiration for me throughout my career. Now, with Delectable, Claudia moves seamlessly from the restaurant kitchen to the home kitchen with this collection of gorgeous, simple desserts and savory bakes that most any home cook could pull off. Underpinning the recipes are genius techniques clearly honed through years of restaurant work, but Claudia’s friendly voice and careful instruction ensure nothing feels intimidating or out of reach. Just as The Last Course inspired a generation of pastry chefs, 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 one of the greatest inspirations to my baking, and her joy for creating is just as infectious as her desserts. Her pastry soars in the realm of genius and yet Claudia’s recipes are down to earth and accessible. The flavors she creates, from her Rhubarb Scones, Fennel Tea Cake, Pecan Olive Shortbread, Ricotta Tart with Roasted Cherries, to savory Shiitake Sticky Buns, are truly delectable. She may be a rock star pastry chef, but Claudia breaks down all the recipes into easy-to-follow steps and shares her kitchen tricks. This book is a gift to every baker, from the novice to the professional. Claudia Fleming has written another classic!”—Zoë François, author of Zoë Bakes Cakes

“Whether in a restaurant or a home, Claudia Fleming has the uncanny ability to make craveable desserts no matter the setting. Following the recipes in Delectable will help you develop your inner pastry chef and create delicious desserts for your family and friends within the comfort of your own kitchen.”—Tom Colicchio, chef and owner, Crafted Hospitality
