The New Sugar And Spice – Book Review
If you enjoy baking and expressing love to your family through the creation of delicious, homemade treats, but also worry about the impact of those goodies on your family’s health, I have some fabulous news for you!
Dessert lover and recipe developer Samantha Seneviratne shares your concerns, and she addresses them in her latest cookbook, The New Sugar And Spice – A Recipe For Bolder Baking!
Samantha recognizes that many of today’s recipes feature an overabundance of sugar, which is bad for your health. So, in The New Sugar And Spice, she focuses on dialing down the sugar and emphasizing unique flavors through the creation of baked goods that focus on the exploration of spices.
Each of the featured desserts still includes enough sugar to delight your taste buds – but as you bake through this book, you’ll learn how to incorporate a wonderful variety of spices into your desserts, including:
- Peppercorn and Chile
- Clove and Cardamon
- Savory Herbs and Spices
The recipes sound scrumptious and the photographs – where provided – are simply delectable!
The cover photo features Samantha’s Pistachio and Chocolate Butter Cake from the Clove & Cardamon section of the book. The Orange-Clove Pull-Apart Bread from this section of the book – along with the light and airy Crepe Cake With Pistachio Cream (shown in her bio photo) and the citrusy Marmalade Cakes from the Vanilla section of the book – are among the many stand-out recipes that caught my eye!
The New Sugar & Spice will make a wonderful addition to your cookbook collection. I am thrilled to add it to mine!
I rate this book 5 out or 5 stars.
