Sugar, I Love You – Cookbook Giveaway

Enter our US/UK giveaway to win one of four copies of Sugar, I Love You: Knockout Recipes to Celebrate the Sweet Things in Life by Ravneet Gill.

Hello members, I’ve been missing in action – working on indexing and end of year projects as well as being under the weather. I will be putting up some great cookbook giveaways in the next few weeks so be sure to check back. To start off 2022, I have a fantastic baking book to tell you about.

Following up on the bestselling The Pastry Chef’s Guide, Ravneet Gill returns to elevate homemade baking. Having laid down the basics and demystified the technicalities in her first book, her second offering, Sugar, I Love You, is a personal love letter to patisserie bursting with color and flavor, sprinkled with personal anecdotes and killer recipes.

With detailed recipes encompassing cheesecakes from around the world, multi-layered, multi-textured cakes, sweet doughs to plaits, soufflés, fritters and many more, Ravneet’s signature style and easy-to-follow approach will help the reader build up their baking armory.

One of my food resolutions for 2022 is to make an entremet. This book has an entire chapter on the subject which is ideal for a newbie to this particular creation. I have a collection of gorgeous pastry books but when I decide to take on this project – I will turn here to get started. The directions are clear and concise and include: how to build an entremet, recipes for a variety of sponges, soaking syrups, spreadables (ganache, compotes, caramels, curds), mousses or fillers, glazes, jellies, crunchy bits, and garnishes. With this chapter, I can mix and match components to create an entremet of my choosing.

The following recipes are available online for you to try now. That miso caramel tart is calling my name as soon as I feel up to getting back into the kitchen for baking (well that recipe and the LPC Lazy Person’s Cake which looks incredible).

Special thanks to the publisher for providing four copies (two to US members/two to UK members) of this title in our promotion. Entry options include answering the following question in the comments section of this blog post.

    I made an entremet a few years ago and it is a very rewarding project to do!

    I’ve been promising myself to make a Basque cheesecake. This recipe would most likely be a good one.

    I’d like to try the Roasted peanut and malt sponge. It sounds interesting and it is out of my comfort zone.

  • Cpl_js  on  January 3, 2022

    This cookbook sounds delicious and I will definitely try making the Miso caramel and chocolate tart with a crunchy cereal base. The recipe has been featured in The Guardian and I’ve read through it. I can’t wait.

    Hopefully the rest of the cookbook will be as good!

  • alee423  on  January 3, 2022

    Mistake Cake would be he one I’d try first.

  • LaurieBakke  on  January 3, 2022

    The first recipe I would make is the Apple and Rosemary Tarte Tatin. I am fascinated with the use of incorporating herbs into baking, and using rosemary is one of my favorites.
    I love making desserts, and Sugar, I Love You is on my list!!!
