Sugar Cube by Kir Jensen with Danielle Centoni


Book Description

Publication Date: April 25, 2012
This covetable cookbook is a greatest-hits collection from Sugar Cube, a tiny pink food cart in Portland, Oregon, that is thronged daily by hungry hordes craving voluptuous sweets intensified with a spike of booze, a lick of sea salt, or a “whoop” of whipped cream. Sugar Cube founder and baker Kir Jensen left the fine-dining pastry track to sell her handmade treats on the street. Recipes for 50 of Kir’s most enticing cupcakes, cookies, tarts, muffins, sips, and candies are made more irresistible (if possible!) by 32 delicious color photographs. Sassy headnotes and illustrations that resemble vintage tattoos liven up this singular boutique baking book.

Review –
I must admit that I purchased this book only because I heard about it or read about it, not because I really really wanted it.  It’s a pretty book with pretty pictures but the recipes are just not would I like.  Here are a few:
Molasses-Buttermilk Corn Bread with Maple White-Dog Whoop and Candied Bacon
Marionberry “Crack”
Curried Carrot Cupcakes
Black and White Sesame Brittle
If you like unusual recipes or know someone who does, this is the book for you.
