Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Patricia Helding, Founder, Fat Witch Bakery, and author of Fat Witch Brownies
"This gem of a cookbook should be nestled right between your baking canisters and a bottle of your favorite hooch. Don't reach for one without the other."

Rick Rodgers, author of Thanksgiving 101 and many other cookbooks
"Lucy Baker has created a spirited collection of luscious recipes that are likely to make a dedicated teetotaller make an exception when it comes to dessert.  Lucy knows what many pastry chefs have known for years--that a splash of booze can make or break a dessert.  Cheers!"

Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, authors of over seventeen cookbooks, including
Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter
"Finally, someone has solved that age-old riddle: you can indeed have your cake and drink it, too. Lucy Baker’s concoctions are the perfect brew—sweet, spirited, and downright fun. Our only warning: she doesn’t include a recipe for aspirin."

Pichet Ong, author of The Sweet Spot
“Of the many baking cookbooks in my stack, this one definitely takes the cake. The concept is utterly original, filled with irresistible photos, and inspiring recipes that will surely incite the inner child—and adult—among us dessert lovers and bakers alike.”
 
The Edge- Boston Herald.com, 8/5/10
“Baker has compiled a swoon-worthy collection of 75 original dessert recipes that use alcohol plus 25 cocktail recipes.” 


Pauline Baughman, Multnomah Cty. Lib., Portland, OR for
Library Journal’s Xpress Review
“… one part mixology and three parts baking... Featuring drinks and a broad variety of desserts, this grown-up baker's delight is a good choice for libraries with limited budgets.”

Pauline Baughman, Multnomah Cty. Lib., Portland, OR Library Journal’s Xpress Review July 2010
“In her first cookbook, appropriately named food writer and contributing columnist for SeriousEats.com Baker gives lovers of desserts and spirits a book that is one part mixology and three parts baking. She includes 25 recipes for drinks alongside 75 recipes for cakes, pies, cookies, and spoon desserts; each is a classic or original dessert that is infused with an alcohol-spirits, liqueurs, wine, or beer. … Verdict Featuring drinks and a broad variety of desserts, this grown-up baker's delight is a good choice for libraries with limited budgets.”

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, December 2010
“It’s hard to resist a cupcake—nevermind one with alcohol—making the aptly named author’s book a tempting treat. Baker’s cute cookbook offers a combination of 75 booze-fueled recipes (like Pineapple-Tequila Cake and Cuba Libre Brownies), along with 25 bonus cocktail concoctions.”

Arlington Advocate, 11/26/10
“… this lovely little book combines sweets with spirits — an irresistible combination and the perfect way to end a meal… Have fun discovering what a splash of the hard stuff can do to a classic treat.“

IMBIBE magazine, May/June 2011
“An intoxicatingly fun book with dozens of inspiring recipes and adorable photographs.”

Library Journal
In her first cookbook, appropriately named food writer and contributing columnist for SeriousEats.com Baker gives lovers of desserts and spirits a book that is one part mixology and three parts baking. She includes 25 recipes for drinks alongside 75 recipes for cakes, pies, cookies, and spoon desserts; each is a classic or original dessert that is infused with an alcohol—spirits, liqueurs, wine, or beer. Desserts run the spectrum from rustic (Fig Galette) to sophisticated (Vin Santo-Vanilla Panna Cotta with Apricot Compote) to a combination of the two (Beer Profiteroles with Chocolate-Beer Sauce), and while some will pack a punch, the alcohol content in others is somewhat negligible. In case your bar isn't well stocked, most recipes include alcohol substitutions. The index contains entries for alcohols by type—useful for using up that bottle of crème de menthe.Verdict Featuring drinks and a broad variety of desserts, this grown-up baker's delight is a good choice for libraries with limited budgets. Krystina Castella and Terry Lee Stone's Booze Cakes (reviewed below) is a good complement.—Pauline Baughman, Multnomah Cty. Lib., Portland, OR
