Book DescriptionMany of us have fond memories of the enticing sweetshop tray of shiny, black, soft, pliable sticks, novelty shapes and intriguing woody `twigs'. Yet liquorice is much more than confectionery; its sophisticated, herbal taste makes it a marvellous culinary ingredient as well. Explore the wonderful world of liquorice with this cook's guide to the different products - roots, sticks, powder, syrups and essence - and which ones to choose. Here you'll find fascinating history, a guide to the different products round the world, cooking advice, and traditional and new recipes that will appeal even to people who say they don't like liquorice! Learn how to create a sumptuous liquorice cheesecake, choc chip muffins with liquorice buttercream, chocolate liquorice cake, liquorice macarons and liquorice brownies. Use liquorice in savoury dishes - a glaze for chicken and roast pork, as a distinctive salad dressing, in a crisped topping for fish, and in drinks and preserves. With gorgeous photographs by Nicki Dowey.
Editorial ReviewLiquorice is one of those Marmite ingredients that can divide a room in seconds. While one half reminisces about the joys of Sherbert Fountains and Joys from the Black Stuff: Liquorice Torpedoes, the other clings to the furniture and dramatically retches. As a respected journalist - well as a journalist, at least - I'm not supposed to take sides in such matters, but I'm afraid I'm not prepared to sit on the fence on this one. After much deliberation and years of dedicated product testing, I'm firmly of the opinion that liquorice is completely and utter delish. And when I say delish, I mean de-dip-dabbing-lish! Perhaps it's because I'm a West Yorkshire woman, born and raised just 15 miles or so from Pontefract, the UK's liquorice capital. Perhaps it's because my grandparents always bought me a liquorice selection box for Christmas and would regularly rock up with attache-case sized boxes of Pontefract cakes (I strongly suspect they had shares - or more likely, a light-fingered friend - in the Dunhill's factory). But, whatever the reason, I have always absolutely loved the stuff... It also means I can please myself when it comes to the dark art of cooking with liquorice, delving into the inky depths of Carol Wilson's latest book - Liquorice, A Cookbook - without having to consult, negotiate or compromise. And if that means eating a whole liquorice cheesecake with only a big spoon for company, well, so be it... Her book explores the wonderful world of liquorice, offering a cook's guide to the different products available - roots, sticks, powder, syrups and essences - with advice on which ones to choose for particular dishes. There are sumptuous sweet treats, like liquorice cheesecake, choc chip muffins with liquorice buttercream, chocolate liquorice cake and liquorice macarons, as well as intriguing savoury dishes, such as liquorice glazed pork, liquorice salad dressing, crispy liquorice topping for fish and liquorice preserves. --Jo Haywood, Yorkshire Life, September 2018; Cooking Up a Real Treat: If you ever wanted to know everything about liquorice, this is the book for you. Although essentially a cookbook, the book has 15 pages, accompanied by photographs, on the history of liquorice, its cultivation and production, growing it in your garden, liquorice around the world, festivals, including Pontefract Festival, and its medicinal properties. Did you know that it promotes water retention and so reduces the sensation of thirst? Hannibal exploited this property and fed liquorice roots to his elephants when crossing the alps, as do the Arabs with camels when crossing the desert. The recipes in this fascinating book cover savoury dishes, desserts and puddings, bakings, sweets and drinks. Roast pork, cheesecake, fruit . cake, bread and strawberry jam are all included here, using liquorice to enhance their flavours and will, no doubt, impress your family and friends while the bakes and sweets will be real novelties on any cake stall at money raising events. This is a book that covers a wonderful ingredient that has been neglected in cooking for far too long and the publisher is to be congratulated for presenting it to us. --Bill Spence, Yorkshire Gazette and Herald, October 2018
