Infusion by Eric Prum and Josh Williams


I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for a fair and honest review

Publication date: May 19, 2015
Pages: 176
Genre: Non-Fiction

Synopsis:
From the authors of Shake: A New Perspective on Cocktails comes Infuse, a recipe book filled with fresh and flavorful oil, spirit, and water infusions.
Authors Eric Prum and Josh Williams’ passion for infusing oils, spirits and waters began one summer nearly a decade ago when the two first made peach-infused bourbon. They were awestruck. The seemingly simple process of adding fresh, local peaches to a Mason jar of Kentucky Bourbon, and infusing the mixture for a handful of weeks had somehow resulted in something so much greater than the sum of its parts.

In Infuse the authors share not only their favorite infusion recipes, but also how to use them in food and cocktails, like a spicy chili oil added to a grilled pizza bianca or a hot toddy spiked with the peach bourbon that started it all years ago. With more than 50 recipes for infusing oils, spirits and waters, Infuse provides instructions, quick tips and plenty of inspiration for how you can make delicious infusions part of your everyday.
 

What did I think about book?
I thought this was a very interesting book. I hope to use some of the recipes in this book in the near future. The detail the author used in how to create the infused oils, spirits, and waters was very nice and made the recipes easy to understand. The picture they used were very vivid and nice looking. I can only home my oils and waters turn out this nice looking.  A couple of infusions I would like to try are Limoncello, Lavender Meyer Lemon Mint Tea and Summer Berry Hibiscus Tea.  

What I think of the cover?
I love this cover. The picture is very simple but I like that about it. I enjoy seeing infused oils and waters in bottle there is something about them that I think are beautiful. 

My rating:
4.5 stars
