“Sweet Alchemy” is a unique cookbook that breaks down the process of baking into ingredient-driven chapters including sugar, butter and flour, eggs and dairy, fruit and flowers and chocolate. Each chapter features new twists on traditional recipes, such as Butterscotch Sauce, Sweet Almond Tart Dough, and Baked Berry Meringue Kisses. These playful sweets can be served on their own or combined into irresistible mélanges such as the Negroni Creamsicle – a composition of Citrus and Vanilla Bean Scented Panna Cotta, Grapefruit-Campari Gelee, and Ruby Red Grapefruit Supremes – or the Sexy Chocolate Coupe – a chocolate extravaganza that marries Dark Chocolate Cremeux to Bittersweet Flourless Chocolate Cake. With stunning photography by Frankie Frankeny, “Sweet Alchemy” brims with innovative recipes and classic techniques that will inspire home chef’s to create innovative desserts and sweet memories all year long!

“With ‘Sweet Alchemy,’ I wanted to break down the barriers of intimidation people often have when it comes to making really special desserts. I want to show home chefs that with a little patience and a lot of love, they too can create wonderfully unique desserts at home.” – Yigit Pura
