Sea Salt Sweet
The Art of Using Salts for the Ultimate Dessert Experience
If you’ve ever dipped pretzels in melted chocolate or sprinkled salt over a juicy melon slice, then you’ve discovered the magic alchemy in mixing saltiness with sweetness. The recipes in Sea Salt Sweet take it up a notch, combining these two great tastes in ways you’ve never imagined. Award-winning blogger and master baker Heather Baird teaches you how to use fine artisan salts – from Maldon Sea Salt and Red Hawaiian Salt, to Himalayan Black and French Grey Salt – to make mouthwatering desserts for any occasion. From sure-to-please classics like Chocolate Chunk Kettle Chip Cookies and Lemon Pie with Soda Cracker Crust, to more exotic choices like Black Sesame Cupcakes with Matcha Buttercream or Smoke & Stout Chocolate Torte, Sea Salt Sweet offers delectable “must-try” treats for the salty-sweet lover.
[B]aking blogger Baird (Sprinklebakes) provides a guide to salt textures (coarse, fine grain, flake), a glossary, and a list of online suppliers [and] organizes her recipes by amount of salt; bakers who prefer just a pinch can try treats such as butterscotch budino tiramisu and caramel buttermilk tart with cornmeal crust, while serious salt lovers may turn to the more aggressively seasoned smoke and stout chocolate torte and candied Kalamata olives. Bakers who like desserts with a savory twist will enjoy this cookbook, along with Agatha Kulaga and Erin Patinkin's Ovenly.
