This looks like a fun cookbook - wondering if anyone is familiar with it / would recommend it? Caitlin Freeman is the pastry chef for Blue Bottle Coffee company. Thanks.

If someone served this to me, I’d do their laundry.

Woodman Cheese and Crackers (ricotta on rye toasts with edible flower petals)

Lots of photos from the book online: do a Google search on “Modern Art Desserts” and click “Images” near the top of your search results page.

The Diebenkorn trifle also looks lovely.

Can’t vouch for how anything tastes – just came across the book.

Too funny, Pegreen, as I think most of us figured it was the Piglet that brought the book to your attention. Caitlyn Freeman is very well known in the San Francisco Bay Area, as she founded an exquisite bakery, Miette, and she's the pastry brains behind beloved Blue Bottle Coffee. If you haven't already, you might like to check out modernartdesserts.com

And yes, I did know that you knew all that...clicked too soon. Anyway, the art desserts were getting lots of attention before she wrote the book. If my daughter were closer to home, I'd put her in charge of making Modern Art Desserts (the existing recipes plus the inspiration).

Can't find it on the Piglet yet - not on the main page or the bracket. Am I doing something wrong?
