Kate Shaffer has written much more than a cookbook here. "Desserted"'s recipes include spectacular flourless peanut butter blondies and its step-by-step instructions for tempering chocolate make it easy to produce shiny, gourmet truffles.

More unexpected but equally impressive are the interspersed honest and sweet tales of a life lived on a tiny island; ones which combine a curious spirit, love, and a drive to do what makes you happy.
