Sticky Fingers, Green Thumb: Baked sweets that taste of nature

Out of stock. Usually despatches within 2 weeks.


Sticky Fingers, Green Thumb celebrates the use of vegetables, flowers and edible herbs in baked desserts.

With over 50 clever, delicious and accessible recipes for cakes, muffins, cookies, brownies and pies, the book also encourages cooks to cultivate their own edible garden (but you can also easily buy the ingredients). The book takes you through chapters covering Real Baking Know-how; Vegetables in Baked Desserts; Herbs in Baked Desserts and Edible Flowers. Each of the herbs, vegetables and flowers sections includes flavour notes for best baking combinations, and gardening tips and tricks for growing the ingredients if that's something you want to attempt.

And then it's onto the recipes and their incredible flavour combinations. Try a Spiced parsnip and willow blossom cake; Sweet pea and green tea cake; or a Lemon myrtle & fennel seed honey cake. Or perhaps you'd rather sample Passionfruit cupcakes with raspberry basil icing; Peanut butter, rock salt and rosemary cookies; or Hibiscus brownies?

This is baking as it should be - soulful, earthy and seasonal.
