Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Since 2007, Bompas and Parr have been "working hard to restore jelly to its culinary throne." They are well known for their food art and installations, recently commemorating the 40th anniversary of the film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory by building a five-ton chocolate waterfall in London. Their edible creations tend toward the avant-garde as well. This book—released in 2010 in the UK as Jelly with Bompas & Parr—brings the authors' work into readers' homes, on a smaller though no less grand scale. Recipes vary in ease of production, from basic fruit jellies to, e.g., flaming and glow-in-the-dark jellies. For many recipes, readers will be left somewhat to their own devices as they try to use the images to reproduce what they see in the book, and many techniques are for more advanced jelly makers. VERDICT Recent U.S. media coverage (e.g., The Today Show, The Martha Stewart Show) may garner some interest in this title, which is visually stunning and an enjoyable read; however, its primary appeal will be to true jelly aficionados.—Meagan Storey, Virginia Beach
