Zosia from Toronto, ON

A celebration of vanilla in all of its forms. The recipes run the gamut from sweet to savoury, homey and retro to modern and sophisticated, but none are particularly complicated or time consuming.

The information about vanilla in the introductory pages is fascinating and thorough. Unfortunately, the same treatment isn’t given to other ingredients, and considering that this is mainly a baking/desserts cookbook, that information can be rather crucial to the success of many of the recipes. Having said that, most of the recipes I tried did turn out well and were delicious. And many, like the Twinkie Bundt Cake, are unique enough to make this book a worthy addition to one’s library.
