It’s the final Monday in January, so that makes this the final cooking resolution of 2013. My last cooking goal to share is to do more baking. Last week, I mentioned that I want to utilize my cookbooks more and that includes my ebooks. One of these is Sugar Baby by Gesine Bullock-Prado. She is the founder of the Gesine Confectionary product line and lives in Vermont. She is a girl after my own green heart as she cooks with her animals’ milk and eggs and uses her homegrown produce.
In Sugar Baby, Gesine teaches the home cook about cooking with sugar and how that can transform your baking skills. She clearly states that she knows that sugar is best had in moderation and when lovingly prepared. She provides a short history of sugar and lists the tools that you need in order to approach the recipes that are included in the book. She offers great tips throughout the book in a friendly and inviting manner.
The book is divided into temperature categories and within each category a set of basic skill recipes is presented and then options are provided for extending the new skills. The recipes are mouth watering. Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels? Yes. Psychedelic Sugar Bowl to present your goodies? Double yes. As the book progresses the temperature categories are combined so that you may create such lovely items as Salted Dulche de Leche Cupcakes. Triple Yes.
If this sounds like your kind of recipe book, the eBook is available at Open Road Media. I will be trying to choose one recipe a month from this book in order to stretch my skills. I will be sure to check back in with updates on how they go.
What are your great bakins successes? What skills would you like to build? If you have any cooking resolution posts to add, please do in the linky.
Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of this eBook for review, but my opinions and excitement over these recipes are of my own.
