Yigit Pura Dishes on His 'Sweet' New Cookbook

By Jocelyn Vena

Get ready to satisfy your sweet tooth! Top Chef: Just Desserts winner Yigit Pura has a new book, titled "Sweet Alchemy," coming to a store near you.

The book features 78, yes 78, recipes from the dessert chef, including ones featured at his San Francisco shop, Tout Sweet Patisserie. But, you'll have to wait a few more weeks to get your paws on it. It doesn't hit retailers until August 19.

What's inside? Yigit takes a "simple" approach to making these desserts. According to the publisher's website, each chapter is broken down into ingredients (sugar, flour, dairy, fruit, and chocolate) and features recipes for fare such as Butterscotch Sauce, Baked Berry Meringue Kisses, Negroni Creamsicle, Citrus and Vanilla Bean Scented Panna Cotta and more.

Fans can get a first-look at some of the sugary confections featured in the book thanks to a delicious-looking video, which features the making of the unbelievable layered crepe cake brulee.

The book is getting a rave review from Gail Simmons. She said, "Sweet Alchemy is a declaration of love! From the way Yigit describes his first memories of caramel to his most complex and layered recipes, he arms you with the techniques you need to make sure you're as successful in your kitchen as he is in his."
