The book features a scrumptious collection of tried and trusted recipes for gifts from your kitchen - cakes, choux puffs, cookies, tarts, snacks and fillings with many variations, as well as several low-carb, high-fat recipes for people on special diets (Banting, paleo, keto, gluten free, sugar free). Master baker Katrien van Zyl tried to focus on easy, flop-proof recipes that you can rustle up without having to hunt for foreign ingredients. Step-by-step photographs illustrate more complicated techniques, so that anyone who can follow basic instructions will be able to achieve them. Katrien also shares packaging ideas for your baked goodies and explains ways to recycle containers and decorate them to suit any occasion. Packed with practical hints, the book further indicates for how long food will remain fresh at room temperature, as well as freezing times for those who want to start preparing for special events ahead of time. Katrien's Gifts from the kitchen is lavishly illustrated with stunning photographs showing that the most beautiful gifts can come from the kitchen.
It has something for everyone, whether you are the one doing the baking, or the lucky recipient of a delicious, attractively packaged edible gift.
