The New Sugar & Spice {Review}

The New Sugar and Spice: A Recipe for Bolder Baking by Samantha Seneviratne is subtitled A Recipe for Bolder Baking. This book starts with Baking Tips, Equipment, and Ingredients, which I always find interesting to get different takes on what types of ingredients and equipment are important. The photographs in this non-glossy paged book by Erin Kunkel are eye catching and well composed. I found it interesting that the 1st Chapter was entitled “Peppercorn & Chile.” The Crunchy Peanutpepper Cookies on p. 23 sounds totally off the wall, but really has me interested.

The author shares some interesting stories about her life in relation to some of the recipes. I read a cookbook like a novel, so I always enjoy the personal parts of cookbooks. The Orange-Clove Pull-Apart Bread on p. 120 looks divine. This cookbook has many of the fancier type desserts as well as some not so fancy standbys that the author embellishes with variations of ingredients. I highly recommend this cookbook for anyone wanting to broaden their baking horizons.

I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
