Sugarcane: Sweet Recipes from My Half-Filipino Kitchen


Author: Arlyn Osborne

Sugarcane is a visually delicious collection of 80 sweets and dessert recipes that offers extraordinary flavor combinations. Drawing on her Filipino heritage and bolstered by her years of professional recipe development, Arlyn Osborne pairs classic Filipino flavors with Western techniques.

Recipes for
 Ube Milk Crinkles, Kumquat Curd Bars, and Pandan Coconut Cream Pie will introduce readers to a new world of ingredients, like star fruit, rambutan, and calamansi. Sunset Cookies with their ombre pattern and mix of mango, passion fruit, and guava, will surprise and delight dinner guests. Mochi-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies and Lemongrass Scones will become household favorites.
Interspersed between the recipes are essays about the history of the Philippines and the effects of colonialism, which add further dimension and context to this book. The mouth-watering full-color photography throughout will transport you to an island paradise and inspire you to bake with Filipino flavors in your own home.
