If you've been wanting to explore the world of natural sugars, this is the dessert book for you! Shauna Sever demystifies all of the different options (turbinado! maple syrup! agave!) and explains what sweetener works best for what purpose. The writing is charming, the recipes are creative and delicious, and the pictures are drool-worthy. I'm pretty loyal to my refined sugar but Shauna's book convinced me to branch out!
