Sweeter off the Vine
A cozy collection of heirloom-quality recipes for pies, cakes, tarts, ice cream, preserves, and other sweet treats that cherishes the fruit of every season.
Celebrate the luscious fruits of every season with this stunning collection of heirloom-quality recipes for pies, cakes, tarts, ice cream, preserves, and other sweet treats. Summer's wild raspberries become Raspberry Pink Peppercorn Sorbet, ruby red rhubarb is roasted to adorn a pavlova, juicy apricots and berries are baked into galettes with saffron sugar, and winter's bright citrus fruits shine in Blood Orange Donuts and Tangerine Cream Pie. Yossy Arefi’s recipes showcase what's fresh and vibrant any time of year by enhancing the enticing sweetness of fruits with bold flavors like rose and orange flower water inspired by her Iranian heritage, bittersweet chocolate and cacao nibs, and whole-grain flours like rye and spelt. Accompanied by gorgeous, evocative photography, Sweeter off the Vine is a must-have for aspiring bakers and home cooks of all abilities.
My thoughts: I was thrilled to receive this cookbook, since my husband and I have added quite a few fruit trees and berry bushes to our little plot of land since moving here. Now that they should be producing more, I am starting to feel a little overwhelmed at coming up with ways to use all the fruit.;) So, I enjoyed looking through this recipe book and seeing the variety of fruits and recipes! I won't be making just jams and pies with our fruit.;) I love the frozen treat recipes especially, though I look forward to trying all of these recipes through the next year.
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
