From the New York Observer

There is no part of the cuisine that requires more skill than the preparation of desserts. To appease the first gnawing hunger that with clock-like regularity announces the arrival of the meal hour, only the blundering efforts of an amateur cook are required.

But to coax a person who has sat through several courses of a dinner to eat the last course with as much relish as the first, a thorough mastery not only of the rudiments hut of the higher art of cooking is essential.

In “Everyday Desserts" Olive Green has added to the Homemaker. Series a volume that is in every respect up to the standard of that eminently useful series.
