ABOUT THE BOOK
Ravneet Gill grew up LOVING sugar. For as long as she can remember it’s been her friend and constant companion – from dairy milk fruit & nut bars, to kitkats, cornettos, treacle sponges, profiteroles and more (she really could go on). It’s little wonder that she grew up to become a pastry chef working in some of London’s most respected food institutions such as London St. John and Llewellyn’s.
With more photographs and detailed recipes from beginning to end, Sugar, I Love You takes homemade patisserie to the next level with Rav’s signature style, wit and easy-to-follow approach. Interspersed with anecdotes and essays on ‘How not to be a sugar snob’ and ‘What to do when your dinner guest doesn’t eat sugar?’ , this book is bursting with colour, flavour and personality. Are you ready to take it to the next level? Rav thinks so…
