Book Description

21 Jun 2010
Jelly is wobbling back into fashion and Bompas & Parr are at the forefront of the revolution. Here they present the definitive book on the history and making of jelly a fun, informative, visually stunning and entertaining package. The book begins with an overview of the incredible history of jelly, from Henry VIII's 'jelly hippocras' to the fantastic forms dreamed up by the Victorians. It then delves into the science of creating the perfect jelly, using the very best ingredients and unmoulding techniques. An array of delicious recipes finally ensure that you can enjoy everything from super-economical fruity delights to flights of the fantastic (everyone should try their hand at a glow-in-the-dark jelly at least once!). With cutting-edge design and photography, and an unparalleled insight into the subject, this is the book to make all your jelly dreams come true.

Product Description


Though the recipes are easy to follow, the wobbling dishes are spectacular; anything can be made into jelly - champagne or liquorice, for instance, and there is bubblegum vodka jelly, and another that, mildy disturbinbly, glows in the dark. --The Daily Telegraph, 4th December 2010

...a collection of wobbly recipes from a pair of performance-food artists...Bompas & Parr go on to prove the point with recipes for fruit jellies, alcoholic jellies, jellies shaped like churche, jellies that glow in the dark. There's even a jelly Christmas pudding. It's all very childish, in a good way. --The Times Review - Food Books of the Year, November 2010

About the Author

Bompas & Parr set up their company in 2007 and receive numerous commissions for their bespoke jellies and moulds. Blurring the boundaries between art and food, they have featured on Heston Blumenthal's Feast programme, hosted a jelly banquet for over 2000 people with jellies designed by leading architects and created a 'walk-in cocktail' installation. They have featured on many TV shows and in the national and international press, including the NY Times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Great! 26 Jun 2010
By J. Pell
This book is exciting and fills a gap in the cookery book market. It is full of very helpful hints and tips about making jelly and lovely recipes which WORK and inspire you to experiment.
I made the blueberry jelly, lemon jelly and the cardamom & honey blancmange and put them together to make a marbled jelly. Delicious and straightforward, but something I would not have tried without support.
Also the quality of the paper, the way that the book is set out and the photograpy is excellent. I am so pleased with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jelly 25 July 2010
This is a specialist interest book, well set out, mouthwatering images and clear instructions. More about Fun in the kitchen and rather quirky. A little short on how to obtain the interesting moulds (which constitute many of the illustrations) but they will answer e-mails very promptly if you get in touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wobbly and inspiring 14 Jun 2010
This book is exciting, inspiring and beautiful. The recipes range from simple fruit jellies to extravagant constructions that are more art than food. And all with instructions that really are easy to follow. Can't praise it enough. You may not need a book on jelly, but you will love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun 20 May 2013
By Sudrac
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Lovely for artistic inspiration and good to begin with if you're trying it for the first time. However, I'd have liked to have more technical information about using different types of gelatine, powdered/veggie and so on - but Bompass and Parr don't approve of these so they're not in there!
