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.

    Hi Ann,
    Thank you for your hack-busting videos and the thought processes and questions you make us think about.
    I stumbled across a cooking video and thought that it looked really good and I wanted to cook that for my family. I thought to myself, ‘would that turn out well if I did it the way they showed?’
    I thought, if I asked Ann, what would she say, what would she ask?
    I dug deeper into their content and by the third video, nope, they are fake.
    Ann, thank you for the information you have taught me and the lessons in critical thinking.

    I used to remove blood stain with hydrogen peroxide.
    there are some soaps that have some kind of enzymes that removes it nowadays.

    David, your comments are great!!
