For the love of baking
PUBLISHED by Struik Lifestyle
Sarah Dall recently joined the Crush team as a recipe developer and stylist, and we couldn’t be more excited to share her cookbook with our readers. For the love of baking is a collection of delectable sweet treats, all beautifully styled with Sarah’s signature flair. The book starts with a helpful glossary of terms, as well as recipes for homemade essentials like curds, icings and sauces used in a number of the subsequent dishes. Each turn of the page reveals another mouth-watering visual feast that will have you wanting to down whatever you are doing and get stuck in straight away. From scrummy sounding Oreo and marshmallow cupcakes for kids, to salted caramel fondants for the discerning sweet tooth, this book has you covered. Helpful tips and suggestions along the way will help beginner bakers to find their way and more difficult recipes will challenge the accomplished.
The pièce de résistance must surely be the stunning festive macaroon wreath towards the end of the book, which, with a little practice, will leave your guests speechless come December. In the meantime though, pick up your copy of For the love of baking and try other upcoming holiday favourites like the chocolate chip hot cross buns for Easter or Amarula kisses for Heritage Day. Certainly if you are an aspiring baker, or you gift it to someone who is, this book will become a well-thumbed favourite.
