Description

In this jolly little gem of a cookery book, Miss Hope and Mr Greenwood offer 50 of their most delectable sweet recipes - delights such as toffee and fudge, coconut ice, gums, jellies, nougat and, of course, perfect hand-made chocolates. Like the confectionery they sell in their shops, everything in the book will recommend the use of the best ingredients, including fresh cream, butter and natural vanilla, and never use artificial flavours. You will also be treated to a delicious array of sweet stories, historical anecdotes and scandal which are guaranteed to make you chuckle. Exquisitely designed and lavishly photographed, Life is Sweet will tap into the current nostalgia for the confectionery we remember from our childhood and allow us to indulge our sweet tooth to the full.
