Matthew Rogers and Tiziana Alipo Tamborra; Foreword by Terces Engelhart
Sweet Gratitude is a cookbook with a message: raw desserts aren’t only healthier for both people and the planet, they can also be every bit as tasty–indeed, sinfully so–as their mainstream counterparts. Tiziana Tamborra and Matthew Rogers, both master dessert chefs at the pioneering San Francisco-based Café Gratitude, present a tantalizing table of after-dinner or any-occasion delights. Illustrated with gorgeous color photographs, the recipes range from simple and quick to advanced and detailed, showing how versatile commonly used fruits and nuts are for whipping up innovative and beautiful desserts. Providing authoritative information on techniques and specialty ingredients, and emphasizing the seasonal and the regional, Sweet Gratitude contains fresh takes on old favorites like pumpkin pie and tiramisu, as well as ingenious new creations like Pomegranate Fig Tart, Brazil Nut Chocolate Ganache, and Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies with Goji Berry Jam. Ideal for anyone looking for healthier dessert choices as well as a valuable resource for people with special dietary needs including those who cannot consume dairy, gluten, or refined sugar, Sweet Gratitude shows readers how to craft what may be the most elusive item in the culinary canon: the guilt-free dessert!
Matthew Rogers is a longtime food and nutrition enthusiast and chef. He has been teaching classes in how to make raw desserts since 2006. He lives in San Francisco. Award-winning chef Tiziana Alipo Tamborra has baked for the Kushi Institute, Taste of Health macrobiotic cruises, and other prestigious venues. She lives in Oakland, CA.
“Whenever I have the opportunity to visit Café Gratitude, I am usually so overwhelmed by the joy and wonder of the dessert menu that I literally skip my meal and just have one or more of the delicious raw, organic desserts.”
—David Wolfe, author of The Sunfood Diet Success System, Naked Chocolate, and Amazing Grace and founder of Sunfood Nutrition
“The recipes in Sweet Gratitude can seem involved at first—they may entail learning to use unfamiliar ingredients such as Irish Moss (a sea vegetable) or learning to create your own liquid vanilla—but once you’ve learned the techniques, the recipes aren’t as complex as they first seemed and the results are oh so worth it. With regular desserts, you can expect only sin and guilt from your indulgence, but with these recipes you get living enzymes, protein, and healthy fats. I've been blown away by every recipe I’ve tried.”
“Forget that these are the healthiest desserts you will ever eat. Matthew and Tiziana have taken their genius and put it into a collection of the most creative, delicious, purely decadent, over-the-top-amazing recipes I’ve had the pleasure to eat and admire!”
—Elaina Love, founder of Pure Joy Planet, executive chef and co-owner of Café Soulstice
