What’s Inside the Cookbook
The book is broken down into chapters by regions of Europe, beginning with a chapter for Eastern Europe, my home region. It’s such an honor to be able to celebrate my heritage in my very first cookbook. I selected all my favorite Eastern European recipes such as Bird’s Bild Torte, Smetanik, Zefir Torte and Ukrainian cheesecake! For each region, I wanted to emphasize the traditional cakes and desserts, sharing with you classic cakes and new, inspired cake creations.
The Best of Europe
So what makes this cake cookbook different from every other book on the shelf? European cakes are different from American cakes on many levels, starting with the flavors and textures. Most of these cakes aren’t as sweet as those found at most American bakeries. They’re also all about the flavor – fruit, chocolate and cream. The cheesecakes are made with ricotta cheese and mascarpone instead of regular cream cheese, resulting in a fluffier and lighter cake. The frostings are also lighter and more flavorful, with recipes such as French buttercream and fluffy whipped cream frosting.
