Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Food Network Cupcake Wars winner shares her scrumptious recipes in a new cookbook that has vegans and omnivores alike clamoring for more.

When Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats opened in 2002, it instantly became one of the most popular bakeries in D.C.-a bakery that just happens to be vegan. Soon, Sticky Fingers was voted D.C.'s best bakery by The Washington City Paper, and chef Doron Petersan found herself beating out traditional bakers on the Food Network's Cupcake Wars.

Sticky Fingers' Sweets is packed with one hundred of her beloved recipes- from indulgent snacks like Fudgetastic Brownies and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies to breakfast treats like Pecan Spice Coffee Cake and Cranberry Ginger Scones, and from celebratory desserts like Chocolate Seltzer Cake and Red Velvet Cupcakes to Sticky Fingers' most popular sweets- Little Devils, Cowvins, and Sticky Buns. Petersan also includes "love bite" nutritional tips and valuable tricks-of-the- trade techniques that every home baker will appreciate.

The number of people embracing a vegan lifestyle continues to grow. Like Erin McKenna's BabyCakes and Isa Chandra Moskowitz's bestselling cookbooks, Sticky Fingers' Sweets and Petersan's delectable-and secretly healthy-recipes will be greeted enthusiastically by anyone and everyone who loves to bake.

Review:

"The founder of Washington, D.C.'s popular Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats vegan bakery — and Cupcake Wars winner on the Food Network — shares her secrets for mouth-watering, animal-product-free treats in this entertaining volume. Sticky Fingers devotees should be most excited about a chapter called 'The Trifecta,' in which Petersan divulges 'the three recipes that built this bakery': the Cowvin cookie (an oatmeal cookie with vanilla frosting); Little Devils (the vegan version of Devil Dogs); and Sticky Buns. And there's plenty for those vegans who've never set foot in the bakery. El Caliente: chocolate spice cake; a whole chapter on vegan whoopie pies (titled 'Making Whoopie,' of course;, Banana Chimp muffins; peanut butter fudge cake; peppermint brownies; and the Sweet-n-Salty cookie are among the many very tempting options. The introduction gives an excellent and approachable primer on the science (and art) of baking in general and vegan baking in particular. That, along with the unpretentious and funny voice, make this collection appealing for vegan and nonvegan bakers alike." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
