Redpath Sugar has helped Canadian bakers for over 160 years. I am pleased to have the opportunity to review the new Redpath Canadian Bake Book. The book is a collection of favourite classic recipes originally brought to Canada from all corners of the world. The cookbook has tested and perfected recipes. This book has already become a favourite in my kitchen. The Redpath Canadian Bake Book has over 200 recipes that include cakes, breads, desserts, special occasion recipes, many baking tips and secrets, and even a section on confection, which makes this pastry chef very happy. One recipe in particular, Salted Vanilla Caramels, caught my eye. These delicious and very addictive caramels can be made easily and quickly in only 6 minutes in your microwave oven.
- The story of Redpath Sugar: the beginning, the history, the commitment to environmentally conscious sugar manufacturing.
- How Redpath crafts its sugar: I learned about the series of steps it takes to clean, filter, boil to the final crystal and drying stages.
- The Baker’s Kitchen: a detailed section outlining what it takes to be prepared for baking day: pantry stocking, refrigerator and freezer staples, must have equipment, and even how to test raising agents (yeast, baking powder, baking soda) for freshness.
