Fantastical Cakes

By Gesine Bullock-Prado

  • Hardback
  • £25.00

Learn fantastical, doable cakes for any occasion. Seasoned author and teacher Gesine Bullock-Prado offers a foolproof method for baking, assembling, filling, and finishing show-stopping cakes that look and taste delicious.

Baking and decorating a cake can be a challenge, and when the end result doesn't taste as good as it looks, a big disappointment! Author and seasoned baker Gesine Bullock-Prado has perfected a method for creating eye-catching spectacular cakes that measure up. Her step-by-step instruction for baking, piping, and making decorations make each bit manageable, whether it's baking layers ahead of time and freezing, or taking the time to crank out a slew of gorgeous frosting flowers that hold beautifully in the freezer until you need them. Her aim is to present a 'system' for cake decorating that carries you through from baking to finishing, no step skipped or left unexplained. Just remember BaDASS: Bake ahead, Dam, Assemble, Smooth coat, and Spruce it up. The layers are as easy as box mixes, and the smoothing and decorating instructions work the first time (not a thousand passes later). From custom shapes to complement a party theme to ultra-gorgeous cakes for special occasions, it's all within reach.

Kindness & Salt

Doug Crowell, Ryan Angulo
Authors:
Doug Crowell, Ryan Angulo

There are two ingredients that make a good meal great: Kindness and salt. Paying attention to salt as you cook, means paying attention to flavor and dedicating yourself to bringing out the best in your ingredients. Cooking with kindness means that you care deeply about the people you're feeding. Doug Crowell and Ryan Angulo, the owner and chef of Brooklyn hotspots French Louie and Buttermilk Channel, believe good food can be this simple. While kindness may not be on any ingredient list, you'll feel it upon walking into their restaurants and within every recipe they create. And salt-well, they'll teach you how to do it correctly. (You always need more than you think.)In their first cookbook, KINDNESS & SALT, Doug and Ryan share more than 100 recipes for the home cook interested in making casual, quality food and drinks to share with loved ones. With recipes like: Lamb Chops with Charred Sugar Snap Peas and Warm Vinaigrette, Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Cheddar Waffles with Black Vinegar Maple Syrup, Classic French Toast and Pancakes, Lemon-Poppy Buttermilk Cake, KINDNESS & SALT focuses on simple ingredients, classic techniques, and signature bistro dishes done exquisitely, at home. Plus it includes lots of tips on stocking a bar, how to choose and handle cheese and unfussy wines, how to store fresh fish and vegetables, and how to make the perfect Bloody Mary that drinks like a meal, and more. Crowell and Angulo expertly guide cooks toward making their best meals--with all the flair of Brooklyn cuisine at its best, and the deep simplicity of food made with love and care.

For those of you who aren't up on your Pinterest food trends, slab pie is just like regular pie-only better (and bigger)!

PIE SQUARED includes seventy-five foolproof recipes, along with inventive decoration tips that will appeal to baking nerds and occasional bakers alike.

In addition to traditional pie dough, she offers more than a dozen crust recipes-from cracker crusts and cornbread crusts to cookie crusts and cheddar cheese crusts. Using these as a base, Barrow then entices readers with both savory and sweet slab pie creations, with recipes like Spinach, Gorgonzola, and Walnut Slab Pie and Curried Chicken Slab Pie to Sour Cream Peach Melba Slab Pie and Grande Mocha Cappuccino Slab Pie. The first book of its kind, this will appeal to lovers of easy food trends like sheet pan suppers and dump cakes. Don't be surprised when you start spying slab pies at your next potluck!

Chasing the Gator

Isaac Toups, Jennifer V. Cole
Authors:
Isaac Toups, Jennifer V. Cole

Cajun country is the last bastion of true American regional cooking, and no one knows it better than Isaac Toups. Now the chef of the acclaimed Toups' Meatery and Toups South in New Orleans, he grew up deep in the Atchafalaya Basin of Louisiana, where his ancestors settled 300 years ago. There, hunting and fishing trips provide the ingredients for communal celebrations, and these shrimp and crawfish boils, boucheries (hog killings), fish frys, and backyard barbecues--form the backbone of this book.Toups shows what it's like to butcher a hog and engineer an on-the-fly barbecue pit--as well as make a 15-minute roux for a quick gumbo (normally a time-intensive process). He guides readers through his home country with detours for salty anecdotes, in-depth tutorials, and rich photography. Divided into sections that embody a wide range of Cajun experiences, the book features 100 recipes that translate old-school techniques for the modern table. This is a book full of attitude and flavor for fans of Action Bronson, Anthony Bourdain, and Paul Prudhomme. Chasing the Gator shows how--and what it means--to cook Cajun food today.
