The Sweet Life - Kate Bracks
The Sweet Life by Kate Bracks is designed to guide the home cook from the "basics"—incorporating basic techniques, such as sauces and syrups; how to make the perfect meringue; make your pastry rather than buy it; how to cook with gelatine—to "beyond the basics" for the more confident cook. And, if you really want to impress, there's a Ramp it Up chapter at the end where all the techniques can be put together to wow your friends and family. There's also a code throughout the book to help you determine which recipes are most suited to your particular cooking desires and ability. Indulge your own sweet tooth with this glorious book of baked treats and dessert recipes from Australia's MasterChef 2011 winner; and don't forget the golden rule—always lick the bowl! Includes dual measures, as well as a list of gluten free, dairy free, and egg free recipes to help readers with specific dietary requirements.
