Another quality cookbook from Hummingbird,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hummingbird Bakery Home Sweet Home (Hardcover)
I've got both of the other Hummingbird cookbooks and use them regularly, although 'Cake Days' is my favourite. Was looking forward to see what they could come up with for book 3. As usual, a high quality book, beautifully illustrated with clear and concise instructions. So far have only made the Chocolate Pudding Pie, the fact that it lasted less than 24 hours in our house speaks for itself!
The only downside of some of these recipes is that they will clearly be expensive to make. For example the Grasshopper slices call for a kilo of top quality white chocolate for the middle. Anyone who's bought a bar of e.g. Green and Black's chocolate lately will have a rough idea of the cost involved! Hence 4 instead of 5 stars.
A good book, some unusual taste combinations, and really interesting looking cupcake recipes. Good to see some savory recipes in there too, but to my mind, not as good as Cake Days.
