Product description


Sometimes a cookbook comes along that seems designed specifically for the Instagram generation, a book that conjures a world of handsome ceramic platters, rustic linens and food that dances around the world, drawing inspiration from the flavors of the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Mexico. The dishes are perfectly imperfect, an edible "I woke up like this," and easy to picture cropped square in your feed. [...] A large part of what makes the book sing is how Ms. Arefi, who lives in Brooklyn but who grew up in Seattle, combines flavors in a way that is utterly modern and often intriguing.
--Emily Weinstein, New York Times

"In Sweeter off the Vine, Yossy Arefi has reimagined fruit desserts in her unmistakable style. These seasonal recipes are rustic and bold, often with an inventive use of whole grains or a thoughtful twist on the familiar. For instance, the Simplest Strawberry Tart is nothing short of a showstopper, while the Blueberry Skillet Cobbler with Whole Wheat Biscuits is easy enough to be a weeknight treat, and the spelt shortcakes make for wonderfully textured partners to roasted stone fruits. This is a vibrant debut.˝
--Tara O'Brady, author of Seven Spoons

"Sweeter off the Vine is ripe with fresh ideas, from fruit-filled fall galettes to summertime cobblers bursting with blueberries. Yossy's book is full of tempting recipes for using the best of the season...all year round!"
--David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen

Both thoughtful and balanced, Arefi's fruit-focused desserts are the perfect way to show off your favorite summer fruits. Make her Cherry and Chocolate Turnovers, Roasted Apricot and Buttermilk Sherbet or Coconut Cream Fool with Raspberries to make a good summer even better.
--Anna Painter, Food & Wine Magazine

"It's rare to find a cookbook that hits the mark with writing, visuals, and recipes. Sweeter off the Vine manages to captivate in equal measures via seemingly effortless prose, gorgeous imagery,
and most of all, Yossy's fresh take on cooking with the fruits of the season."
--Merrill Stubbs, co-founder and president of Food52

"Sweeter off the Vine
is a beautiful articulation of gorgeous, seasonal desserts. The recipes are both accessible and nuanced--offering a balance of sweet and savory at all levels. Told with care and charm, this book is warm and inspiring, and invites you to reinvent the common dessert."
--Karen Mordechai, author and founder of Sunday Suppers

Arefi does a notable job showcasing the best of nature's bounty in this original collection, which is enhanced by vibrant, eye-catching full-color photos that will earn her a new following.
--Publishers Weekly

Sweeter Off the Vine fulfills all of our fruity dessert cravings.
