Covering everything from buttery biscuits to to-die-for ice creams, this is a perky pick-me-up in cook book form.
Infused with an infectious, unadulterated, no-guilt passion for the sweet stuff, Ravneet Gill’s Sugar, I Love You is ideal for anyone who wants to take their baking to the next level. What’s more, it’s easy-to-follow, with Gill’s demystifying, straight-talking, witty approach as central to the book as her love of sugar. It also bursts with photos that are every bit as vibrant as the recipes (and their author, for that matter).
Covering Biscuits, Cakes, Cheesecakes, Sweet Doughs, Fried Delights, Entrements, Ice creams and Plated Desserts, each chapter of Sugar, I Love You is threaded with a fabulous international outlook, with mouth-watering recipes for the likes of Japanese cheesecake, Danish Brunsviger cake, and ricotta bombolini served alongside inventive twists on British classics, including Devonshire splits and a self-saucing toffee apple pudding. This is the kind of cookbook that will invigorate and inspire even the most seasoned of bakers.
Ravneet Gill grew up LOVING sugar. For as long as she can remember its' been her friend and constant companion - from dairy milk fruit & nut bars, to kitkats, cornettos, treacle sponges, profiteroles and more (she really could go on). It's little wonder that she grew up to become a pastry chef working in some of London's most respected food institutions such as London St. John and Llewellyn's.
Having laid down the basics and demystified the technicalities of baking in her first book, The Pastry Chef's Guide, Rav is back to serve up some more gems to help you build up your baking armory. We're talking MORE cheesecakes (with influences from around the world), ultimate multi-layered, multi-textured cakes, sweet doughs such as devonshire splits and sweet, dimpled brunsvigers. Make the fryer your friend with sweet bombolini, fritters and classic ring donuts. Get FANCY with plated desserts to impress your friends, with luminescent mousses and intricate entremets to take your breath away.
With more photographs and detailed recipes from beginning to end, Sugar, I Love You takes homemade patisserie to the next level with Rav's signature style, wit and easy-to-follow approach. Interspersed with anecdotes and essays on 'How not to be a sugar snob' and 'What to do when your dinner guest doesn't eat sugar?' , this book is bursting with colour, flavour and personality. Are you ready to take it to the next level? Rav thinks so...
