Serious, this is the best book on making candy out there. I¿ve looked, I know. I own over 300 cookbooks, and yet, if I want something sweet, this is my go to book. Not only has Jane Sharrock taken all the mystery out of making candy with 27 pages of easy to follow directions and instructions, she rates every recipe, telling whether it¿s Novice Super Simple, Novice Easy, Average, Advanced, and Expert. She tells you how much the recipe will make and exactly what you need to make it- not only the food ingredients, but all the utensils, so you can be sure you have everything on hand before you start. The recipes themselves are a treasure hoard of delights from the elegant to simple, from complicated to comfortable. Generations of her family are represented by recipes and she tells delightful anecdotes about most of them along with the recipes. Because such a broad range of time is covered, you¿ll not only discover new treats, you¿ll find family favorites. My only word of warning is that there aren¿t many pictures, so if you¿re someone like my friend Lindsay that thinks cookbooks need pictures I wanted to warn you, but I still recommend this book! It¿s perfect the way it is.
