Salty Sweets: Delectable Desserts and Tempting Treats with a Sublime Kiss of Salt


This review was prepared by Ivonne of Cream Puffs in Venice.

I will never forget the the first time I tasted a piece of chocolate with some sea salt on it. Heaven! Ever since then I have been hooked on the idea of enjoying sweet, with a bit of salty to enhance the flavour.

Written by Christie Matheson, this delightful cookbook is a treasure of recipes that will take you through the joy of enjoying sweet and salty.

Spanning everything from cakes to cookies to ice cream, I cannot recommend this book more highly! The idea behind adding some salt to to sweets is that the salt helps to emphasize the flavour if the dessert and I couldn’t agree more.

While I could have tried so many recipes, I settled on a vanilla cake drenched in a delicious vanoilla syrup and then sprinkled with a touch of salt to enhance the sweet vanilla. Delicious!

If you have the opportunity, be sure to pick up a copy of Matheson’s Salty Sweets: Delectable Desserts and Tempting Treats with a Sublime Kiss of Salt. You won’t regret it!

Yes your review is short, sweet and salty – yes I think the addition of salt always adds that extra WOW to sweet dishes. Cheers from Audax in Sydney Australia.
