Sweet Read: Field Guide to Candy
What to say about pastry chef/blogger/cookbood author Anita Chu's new book except that you have to have it?
Her Field Guide to Candy: How to Identify and Make Virtually Every Candy Imaginable is just as mouthwatering as it sounds, with more than 100 essential recipes packed into one thick, tiny tome.
For candy lovers, this is a treasure trove of creating your own steady supply of homemade treats -- everything from gummy bears to peanut butter cups to fleur de sel caramels. (You're asking yourself, homemade gummy bears? Yeah, same here.)
There are also candy-making notes, tips on storing and serving the candies, and historical tidbits to give you some food for thought.
If you're already thinking Christmas, this would be a great present for your favorite sweet tooth.
