Baking with Licker

After the success of his self-published first book, Lickerland, globe-trotting pastry chef Jason Licker has released a follow-up cookbook, this time aimed at home bakers. Baking with Licker is a collection of almost 60 Asian-inspired dessert recipes that, according to Licker, “redefines what is possible when homespun American-style desserts meet Asia’s most iconic ingredients.” Each dish begins with a base recipe then offers an Asian twist, which you can use or keep it classic. There are intriguing flavor combinations that can be seen is recipes such as Peanut Butter & Miso Cookies; Black Forest Sesame Cake; Thai Tea Tres Leches; Blueberry & Yuzu Muffins; Lemongrass Cream Puffs; and Chai Tea Flan. Baking with Licker may be full of offbeat ingredients and flavors, but its spirit is founded on the simplest of goals: to make home baking fun for any skill level and for any level of palate experience, while providing a platform for Asian ingredients to make their mark on the world of classic pastry. Baking with Licker is available here.
