If you've never been a fan of crackers, this book will change your mind. Full of crisp mouth-watering treats, salty and sweet, some with whole-grain flours-you will want to try them all."

Crackers & Dips: More than 50 Handmade Snacksby Ivy Manning, Jenifer Altman
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
This is the DIY guide to making homemade crackers, with 52 formulas for crisp snacks and the luscious dips to eat them with, all celebrated with 25 playful photographs. Portland, Oregon–based food writer and baker Ivy Manning capitalizes on the pure flavors of whole grains, real butter, cheese, fresh spices, and no preservatives in her formulas for crunchy, sweet, and savory treats, all made to pair with a chapter's worth of creamy, gooey dips, and schmears. Recipes and tips are for bakers of all skill levels and tastes, with formulas for vegan, gluten-free, and whole-grain crisps. This adorable book is timed perfectly for the cracker-making trend and makes the ideal gift for the baker or entertainer who takes pride in making everything from scratch.
Food writer Manning (The Farm to Table Cookbook: The Art of Eating Locally) shares recipes for crackers, chips, and dips that are less expensive and (when prepared correctly) more delicious than store-bought snacks. Her many sweet and savory varieties will appeal to a wide range of tastes but can be complicated to prepare. Even "easy crackers" require readers to grind spices, deep-fry, and purchase unconventional ingredients. Still, this handsome volume offers gourmets an opportunity to create uniquely show-stopping snacks. VERDICT Fancier and more technically precise than Lee E. Cart's The Cracker Book: Artisanal Crackers for Every Occasion, this is a great niche title for readers interested in homemade crackers.
