The New Sugar and Spice
A Recipe for Bolder BakingSamantha Seneviratne
This book is a wonderful collection of stories and recipes. The author takes some basic sweets and kicks it up a notch by adding spices. Another thing I love about this book is that the recipes are grouped by the spice used. So if you are looking for something with the kick of cinnamon it is easy to find. The stories she tells of visiting her grandparents in Sri Lanka, and the abundant fresh spices she discovered, makes me want to go in my kitchen and bake. Food should have a story. I am glad she shared hers.
A wonderfully unique and unexpected collection of desserts that showcase spice over sugar, with 80 recipes that both reinvent classic sweets and introduce more unusual spice-infused desserts.
In Sugar and Spice, veteran food editor and recipe developer Samantha Seneviratne invites readers to explore a bold new world of spice-centric desserts. Each chapter centers on a different spice--some familiar, like vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger; others less expected (especially in sweet preparations), such as peppercorns, chiles, and cardamom. With fascinating histories, origin stories, and innovative uses for each spice, this book will inspire readers to rediscover and re-stock their spice drawers, and raise their desserts up to a whole new level of flavor.
