Field Guide to Candy

by Erin

Field Guide to CandyThe Field Guide to Candy conceived by blogger Anita Chu of Dessert First is a tiny cookbook that just brims with fascinating facts, tips, and recipes. I personally would never have dreamed to attempt making my own Gummy Bears, Maple Sugar Candy, or Rock Candy at home. These are all treats that I’ve ordinarily purchased in a store, but with Anita’s straightforward and easy to follow instructions I’m confident that I’m now in possession of the knowledge to become a one woman candy making machine.

From the publisher: Field Guide to Candy includes traditional favorites and exotic treats from all over the world, everything from peanut butter cups and salt-water taffy to Pastelia (Greek honey candy) and Turkish Delight. Each candy is photographed in glorious full color, with step-by-step instructions on how to prepare, make, serve, and store your creations. Yummy homemade confections are just minutes away with Field Guide to Candy in your pantry!
