Candyman is the fourth book I’ve published. It is inspired from a personal belief that desserts are life’s gift to mankind, something not necessary to have, but brings great joy when it is bestowed. Sharing desserts is like sharing a smile, and has the potential to bring with it great happiness when shared, hence making it an instigator of love and all that is good.
I feel great happiness making desserts. It makes me wonder what is going through the minds of people who originated these recipes, who they created them for and the joy it must have brought into their lives. Even though writing this book took a lot of thought and effort in finding and imagining stories to complement such wonderful recipes, I had a lot of joy every step of the way and proudly share these recipes with everyone.
There are 63 recipes for desserts, and another 33 recipes for sauces, along with beautiful photography by Oh Singhasuvich, and the gorgeous art direction from Hans Werner Mueller.
