128 pages : color illustrations ; 21 cm

"Icebox cakes the hottest cold treats in town! A sumpturous marriage between cookies and whipped cream, an icebox cake is more than the sum of its parts. In its most basic form, crisp cookies or wafers are sandwiched between layers of billowy whipped cream or pudding and then chilled in the fridge overnight. As the cake rests, the cookies soften and transform into a delicious and dense, cakelike texture. Here, you'll find fantastic flavor combinations starting with the Old School, that classic pairing of chocolate wafers and luscious whipped cream. Then you'll be ready for treats like Luscious Lemon with its lemon curd filling and layers of ladyfingers. Or perhaps the Salty Milk Dud is more up your alley with its chocolate graham crackers and saly caramel pudding topped with billowy mounds of choclate whipped cream,"--page [4] of cover.

Driving hungry : a memoir

July 8, 2015
Mosler, Layne.
New York : Pantheon Books, [2015]
306 pages ; 24 cm
"A delicious memoir that takes us from Buenos Aires to New York to Berlin as the author, driven by wanderlust and an unrelenting appetite, finds purpose, passion, and unexpected flavor. Layne Mosler's search for her next meal based on a recommendation from a cab driver starts in Buenos Aires: After leaving a tango club following a terrible turn on the dance floor, she impulsively asks her taxista to take her to his favorite restaurant. Soon she's savoring one of the best steaks of her life, and in the weeks after, repeating the experiment with equally delectable results. So begins the gustatory adventure that became the basis for her cult blog, Taxi Gourmet. In New York City the author continues her food quests and meets a pair of extraordinary lady cab drivers who convince her to become a taxi driver herself. In Berlin she becomes as enchanted with the city's aura of restless transformation as she does with the spicy curries, and a certain fellow cabbie who knows as much about Nietzsche as he does about sausage. With her vivid descriptions of places and people and food, Mosler, who has a degree in anthropology and more than a decade of experience in the restaurant trade, has given us a beguiling book that speaks to the beauty of chance encounters and the pleasures of not always knowing your destination."-- Provided by publisher.
