ARC REVIEW — Candy Is Magic: Real Ingredients, Modern Recipes by Jami Curl

descriptiondescriptionThis was a wonderful little candy cookbook. It was full of delicious sounding recipes. Had some yummy photos and cool hand drawn graphics. We start off with an introduction by the author. Followed by chapters that include methods and techniques. What tools you will require (pots, scale, candy thermometer, candy mold (just to name a few). What ingredients you will need (sugar, crystal blockers, fat, and salt etc) and a little information about each one. Some flavor inspiration to get you started.

A chapter featuring recipes that act as the foundation for countless candies, desserts, drinks, and more (roasted fruit purées, infused creams, easy ice creams, syrups and reductions, magic dusts etc.) As well as chapters devoted to Lollipops, caramels, marshmallows, gumdrops, ice cream and more. Each different chapters begins with an introduction to the candy, the technique, the tools, and the setup, followed by several recipes and tips.
