Call number: TX783 .P343 2012

A delicious collection of international recipes from the award-winning author of Warm Bread and Honey Cake… This enchanting cookbook offers recipes for the best of the world’s sweets, tiny cakes and patisserie, from Indian milk sweets to the nutty filo dainties of the Middle East; from tiny French sponge cakes to Scottish fudge. Alongside over 120 easy-to-follow recipes, the author offers engaging narratives on the history of sweets—tales of trade and sea voyages that have enchanted children for centuries. All the sweets and cakes can be eaten in one or two mouthfuls—ideal for the family, entertaining, or gifts. Sugar and Spice is filled with stories from around the world and it is as much an armchair read as a practical cookbook. With beautiful photography and delectable design it makes the book itself an ideal gift and will be as much a treat as the recipes themselves. (From B&N)
