Format: Hardcover
This book has a wealth of mouthwatering recipes for making marshmallows and fluff, and then making other recipes using the marshmallows, fluff etc. It includes recipes for making marshmallows with fruit purees, alcohol, various flavourings and with the inclusion of choc chips, caramel etc. I have tried making these previously and was amazed at how good they are to make, although the technique can be a little tricky. This book explains the method clearly, makes it look astoundingly easy and has a brilliant range of recipes. I can't wait to try them all and will be making a variety of these for Christmas. If you like marshmallows, this book is a great buy.

CORN FREE Marshmallows! (And a gorgeous cookbook) 8 Jan. 2010
By K. Hill - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This cookbook has been abolutely amazing! My daughter is allergic to corn and could not have storebought or even homemade marshmallows until I found this book. Granted, you can make the recipes using light corn syrup, but try taking the time to make some of the marshmallow syrup. It lasts months and the results taste cleaner and less gummy than with corn syrup. I have made the vanilla marshmallows multiple times to rave reviews. Not only that, everyone loved looking through the book, which is beautifully photographed and formatted. It would make a wonderful coffee table book even if you didn't try out the recipes. But it is SO worth it! The cinnamon mocha marshmallow batter is quite possibly the most wonderfully evil thing I have ever made. My two girls went crazy for those marshmallows, even more than the vanilla ones. Which by the way, make the most fabulous rocky road candy ever. Even my non marshmallow liking mom could not resist finishing the whole huge piece when she went to just try a little bite. The only trouble is trying to decide which flavor to try next. I really love that for the regular marshmallows, you do not have to drizzle hot syrup into the mixer. You just mix it all together, chuck it in the mixer and let it go. The author has step by step pictures on her website under the help section at [...]. Use the Look inside option to check out the contents and index to see just what an amazing variety is offered, from the mundane to the exotic. Buy it, use it, then sit back and bask in the flow of complements. Ten stars. Highly recommend.

The Kindle version has obvious errors 29 Jun. 2012
By TMC - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm really excited to try many of these recipes. They sound delicious! But the Kindle version is in dire need of editing. There are a few places where it seems like the last half of the paragraph was just deleted - the text actually stops mid-sentence.

For example, in the part about cocoa, it says "Dutch-processed cocoa has a milder flavor, is reddish-brown, and is alkalized, neutralizing"

And that's it. There's nothing after the word "neutralizing" except for the next section.

Unfortunately, knowing that the text wasn't edited very carefully makes me paranoid about running into errors in the recipes themselves. While most recipes call for boiling the base until it reaches 250 degrees, there are some that say 260 degrees and at least one recipe that says 240 degrees. My understanding of candy-making is that it is very VERY precise, but I have no idea if the 260 degree and 240 degree recipes are accurate, or a product of lazy proofreading. I don't want to spoil an entire batch because of a simple typo!

PLEASE update the Kindle version with a copy that has been properly proofread! Until I am sure that the recipes I have are accurate, I will not be able to give this a higher rating.

wonderful 29 Nov. 2010
By John Doe - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I first started making marshmallows after watching The Barefoot Contessa make them on one of her shows. I have since made that recipe with my own variation a dozen times. I had then read an article in a foodie magazine about savory marshmallows and how shops in Paris serve these amazing marshmallows, they referenced this book, I immediately went on amazon and found the book, and yes if you want to try new things and get out of you comfort zone, buy this book. The recipes are amazing and so far I have made the lemoncello marshmallows and I am working my way up to the thyme marshmallows and look forward to trying them. It's a really fun book.

Wowee! 26 Mar. 2008
By W. Duffy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a well designed and beautifully photographed book that has made me the culinary genius of the family. The marshmallow treats are the talk of every party. But the hidden gems in this book are Eileen's Deep Chocolate Brownies and her Sweet Cream Dessert Biscuits. And once you get into the fluff, you never return.

Can't wait for the next one from her.

What a great book! 22 Feb. 2008
By a-z foodie - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I didn't know where to start! So many great photos and intriguing ideas. I wound up making
the banana marshmallows on page 42 to give as Christmas gifts to the friends and neighbors who were probably cookied-out. I put a half dozen marshmallows in cute little red foil boxes. They were a total hit and nobody could believe that I had made them myself. Hard time finding the banana nectar. I finally found it at Whole Foods. Can't wait to try a few more of the flavors. I hear the lemon is spectacular.
