About The Book

SENSUAL AND DELICIOUS DATE DESSERTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE. Sticky. Sweet. Gooey. Eating a date is like biting into a caramel cloud, its sweet and soft flesh tinged with molasses and flavor. Dates are one of the oldest cultivated foods with over 600 varieties grown around the world today. From California’s thirst-quenching date shakes to the quintessentially British sticky toffee pudding and its luscious butterscotch sauce, to wholesome date and sesame flatbreads, spicy ginger and date jam, and the creamiest, honeyed date cheesecake, Sun Bread and Sticky Toffee: Date Desserts from Everywhere is like a dense, shady date grove, packed with delicious, natural and healthy recipes that demonstrate the versatility of baking with dates and date syrup.

Raves and Reviews

"Dates are ancient, but certainly not dated. From sweet breads to cookies, cakes, puddings, and ice creams, the forty date recipes in this beautifully photographed cookbook feel contemporary yet retain the sure-handedness of some of the oldest foods in the world. London-based food writer and author of Cardamom and Lime has travelled the world researching culinary cultures, and in her latest cookbook, Sun Bread and Sticky Toffee, she has collected a diverse array of dessert recipes, all containing the beloved date fruit. Recipes such as "Pistachio, Date, and Fig Biscotti," "Date and Ricotta Fritters," and "Date, Sesame, and Espresso Milkshakes" from Africa, the Middle East, South America, and Australia illuminate the love of the fruit- and of sweet desserts- from all across the globe. Beginning with a brief history of the date's cultivation and uses then diving right into a collection of recipes from around the world, Al-Hamad offers a wide range of options and ideas for incorporating one of the most popular ingredients into delectable foods."
