Upgrade your baking came and delight your friends and family, with this deliciously decadent new cookbook.
Sticky Fingers, Green Thumb by Hayley McKee invites your imagination to travel out of the kitchen and into the garden. Boasting more than sixty visually stunning recipes that celebrate home-grown veges, herbs and edible flowers in cakes and other sweet snacks, Hayley teaches you how to harness the unique flavours, prep them for baking and even grow them yourself.
Discover and delight in creating flavour-packed baked treats that aren’t loaded with empty gestures. Say "goodbye" to mushroom risotto and zucchini fritters and "hello" to porcini caramel and chestnut cake, and apple cider and zucchini muffins. This is earthy, seasonal baking at its very best.
Alongside most of the recipes – whether for cakes, tarts, cookies, brownies or muffins – you’ll find gardening tips on how to grow the key ingredients in your own baker’s garden. It doesn’t matter if that garden is a little windowsill of herbs or one big unruly planter of vegetables; if every time you pluck your own produce you think about a sweet use for it, then this book has done its job.
