This game-changing candy cookbook from the owner of Quin, a popular
Portland-based candy company, offers more than 200 achievable recipes
using real, natural ingredients for everything from flavor-packed fruit
lollipops to light-as-air marshmallows.
Jami Curl, candy-maker extraordinaire and owner of the candy company Quin
has been called the "new Willy Wonka" by Bon Appetit. Her debut book, This is
Candy, includes the recipes that have made Quin a favorite with local and national
media, foodies, chefs, and bloggers. But This is Candy is not just a candy book.
Instead, Jami's approach to candy forms the foundation for a world of other
confections--from bacon glazed with maple and black pepper caramel to a clever
Chocolate Magic Dust that can be turned into chocolate pudding, chocolate sauce,
and even a chocolate lollipop. Packed with more than 200 recipes for totally
original confections like Whole Roasted Strawberry Lollipops, Bergamot Caramels,
Fig & Coffee Gumdrops, and Pinot Noir cotton candy, as well as serious tips and
advice for making amazing candy at home.
Wow, this book is really amazing! If, like us, you have to be careful what you eat due to food intolerances and such annoying things, you might also tend to cook and prepare a lot of things at home. Or perhaps - you just like to cook and try new things. Any of those reasons is a wonderful reason to buy this book!
"Candy is Magic" is a great ressource for all sugar-junkies because you can find recipes for almost everything in here with detailed and easy-to-follow explanations. Oh, and if everything should not be enough you'll also find quite a nbumber of unusual recipes in here for any kind of cookies, lollipops, caramels, ice-creams, magic dusts and in the end you'll find that this book will also help you to make "dreams come chew".
This book enables you to make a lot of wonderfuland delicious candy and you don't need special machines or something like that just a couple of regular pots and pans and a whisk, the most unusual tools are a candy thermometer and perhaps a candy funnel or a candy mold. You don't have to rebuild your kitchen or spend a lot of money in order to make candy, you just have to start - and you need the right recipes!
I really really like this book and can definitely recommend it!
