"The Boozy Baker" is a fun collection of recipes for cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, and more, all of which contain a healthy dose of alcohol. Home bakers will recognize classic treats such as profiteroles, peach cobbler, and spiced Bundt cake, and be delighted by the ways they are reinvented with chocolate stout, almond liqueur, and even Jagermeister. Featuring more than 30 full-color photographs, the book also includes sidebars throughout with instructions for preparing funky cocktails that add a punchy compliment to many of the recipes.
Whether you are a pastry perfectionist or a one-bowl beginner, a bonafide mixologist or just looking for a way to polish off a few dusty bottles, this cookbook is sure to become a favorite, its pages splattered with chocolate, sprinkled with sugar, and garnished with a twist.
Patricia Helding, Founder, Fat Witch Bakery, and author of Fat Witch Brownies "This gem of a cookbook should be nestled right between your baking canisters and a bottle of your favorite hooch. Don't reach for one without the other." Rick Rodgers, author of Thanksgiving 101 and many other cookbooks "Lucy Baker has created a spirited collection of luscious recipes that are likely to make a dedicated teetotaller make an exception when it comes to dessert. Lucy knows what many pastry chefs have known for years--that a splash of booze can make or break a dessert. Cheers!"
