REVIEW: Homemade – Delicious Foods To Make and Give


homemade: delicious foods to make and give

As a collector of cookbooks (and someone who loves to give homemade presents) Homemade: Delicious Foods to Make and Give is one that I return to over and over again. It even got me into making and bottling my own jams and ketchups! The recipes are a wonderful mix of traditional (chocolate cookies) and international fusion (chutneys, black bean hummus, ras-al-hanout). Instructions and techniques are clearly laid out and so far everything I have made has gotten rave reviews.

Sections include:

• Cakes
• Cookies
• Breads
• Candies & Nuts
• Jellies, Jams & Marmalades
• Syrups & Sweet Sauces
• Spiced Fruits & Chutneys
• Relishes, Pickles & Olives
• Vinaigrettes, Salad Dressings, Condiments & Seasonings
• Savory Sauces
• Snacks & Appetizers
• Drinks

Beautifully photographed and written in an engaging personal manner, this book is definitely a winner (and a keeper) :D
