Pavlova in a Hat Box, Sweet Memories and Desserts
by Cynthia Neale
Art by Maggie Martin
Cynthia Neale’s Pavlova in a Hat Box, Sweet Memories and Desserts is a pithy collection of stories and meditations that have been wrested from a country childhood and a writing life. These sketches have been distilled and refined into an essence of love, forgiveness, and nostalgia. Accompanying these vignettes are classic and new sumptuous dessert recipes redolent of the comfort of old-fashioned fare, but with an organic twist. The cheerful and whimsical illustrations and art work by Maggie Martin are accented throughout the book and give heed to celebrate the simple and the grand days of our lives, and to do so with dessert. Along with this extraordinary memoir cookbook, original piano music by Linn Brown will be made available.
