The recipes in this book are a snapshot–a slice in time–of the expert artisan produce of Sweet Envy: from pork & harissa sausage rolls and sticky pecan buns, to the perfect croissant, or a seriously haute-couture cake with lashings of buttery icing.
Within these pages are over one hundred fabulous recipes for pastries, both savory and sweet, desserts, tarts, old-fashioned sweets, biscuits, cupcakes, gorgeous celebration cakes and ice cream to drool over (you’ll want to lick the page, seriously).
The authors have worked in some of the most prestigious pastry kitchens and restaurants in the world, so these recipes are packed with the ancient wisdom of professional pastry-chef experience. As well as this, their hilarious anecdotes and wry observations of community life among Hobart’s farmers, foodies and friends, provide a refreshing and somewhat anarchic sense of humour not usually associated with the sweet art of baking.
“an exceptional recipe collection” and “wildly creative” –San Diego Book Review, 1/22/2016
