Food Swap: Specialty Recipes for Bartering, Sharing & Giving Including the World’s Best Salted Caramel Sauce
Neighborhood women used to get together once a year during the holidays and have a cookie exchange. This is NOT that. This is a far more sophisticated version that takes real planning and oversight, but is hugely rewarding for those involved. Author Emily Paster introduces the concept by telling how she began the Chicago Food Swap and what experiences she and other members had, how to find a food swap or start your own, the stories of other food exchanges, and other things such as legal implications. This truly can be the answer for someone with a passion for making one or two special things who wants some variety at the table. The recipe section is filled with wonderful artisanal recipes for candies, baked goods, soups, dips, pantry items, and more. Yes, the Salted Caramel Sauce may be the world’s best, in this reviewer’s opinion, but is rivaled by the English Toffee recipe, which is so good and so easy. There are fun flavored salts, vinegars, and sugars and a Rhubarb Chutney that is to die for. The writing is lively and the content very useful. A bonus section has tags and notecards for swapping as well.
