Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This lovely homemade gift book is organized by seasons and celebrations. Many recipes take advantage of fresh seasonal ingredients or are perfect for holidays. Each item is beautifully illustrated, with packaging or serving ideas. Recipes include beverages, candies, cookies, cakes, nut mixes, and preserves. Rigg (Macarons: Chic & Delicious French Treats) is a London-based food writer and stylist, and some recipes have a British feel with a twist. Lemon Curd has been enhanced with passion fruit, and Red Currant Curd will make a delicious and distinctive companion. One of the most striking photos is of Love Heart Sugar Cubes, tiny hearts formed in pastel shades and perfect for tea, shower favors, or a special birthday. A chapter on celebrations provides holiday ideas and includes a Divali Cashew and Almond Barfi and Christmas Date and Ginger Cakes. An excellent resource for ambitious cooks; the book itself will make a great gift.—Melissa Stearns, Franklin Pierce Univ. Lib., Rindge, NH
