Jelly is wobbling back into fashion and Bompas and Parr are at the
forefront of the revolution. Here they present the definitive book on
the history and making of jelly - a fun, informative, visually stunning
and entertaining package. The book begins with an overview of the
incredible history of jelly, from Henry VIII's 'jelly hippocras' to the
fantastic forms dreamed up by the Victorians.
It then delves into the science of creating the perfect jelly, using
the very best ingredients and unmoulding techniques. An array of
delicious recipes finally ensure that you can enjoy everything from
super-economical fruity delights to flights of the fantastic (everyone
should try their hand at a glow-in-the-dark jelly at least once!). With
cutting-edge design and photography, and an unparalleled insight into
the subject, this is the book to make all your jelly dreams come true.
