Description

This enchanting cookbook offers recipes for the best of the world’s sweets, tiny cakes and patisserie – from Indian milk sweets to the nutty filo dainties of the Middle East; from tiny French sponge cakes to Scottish fudge.

In a concise but engaging narrative, the author describes the folklore and history of sweets – tales of trade and sea voyages, religion and myth, that have enchanted children for centuries, along with over 120 easy-to-follow recipes. All the sweets and cakes can be eaten in one or two mouthfuls – ideal for the family, entertaining or gifts. Presented in the prettiest of packages, this book will be as much a treat as the recipes themselves.
