I have been busy over the last year planning, writing and overseeing the photography and layout for my first ever cookbook! There are heaps of my favourite dessert recipes in there with a chapter on pastries, ice-cream, yummy cakes, artistic desserts and of course chocolate desserts. Each chapter has its own intro explaining the food science that you'll need to know for success every time. Booksellers where you can purchase your very own copy:

All recipe quantities in the book are in grams, ounces and cups.

    My family and I love the yogurt mousse recipe included here šŸ™‚ I have managed to convert it to dairy free and sugar free and it is quick to make and so yummy! It works quite well frozen too – its like a yogurt icecream.
    Thank you so much for this lovely recipe!!!
