First off I have to say that this is not the book I was expecting, and that is a good thing because it is so much more than I imagined. Flavor combinations that are spot on and totally delicious.
I was first introduced to Eric & Josh through their Mason Shaker via Kickstarter. I was an early and enthusiastic backer, telling everyone I knew about the coolest cocktail shaker around. I had drunk amazing cocktails using their recipes, but had no idea they were food guys too.
The recipes in Infuse are surprising in their simplicity, but they still bring big flavor to the table. Here is an example of what you will find.
Photos of the ingredients needed to make the infusion,
the actual recipe with helpful hints and suggestions,
and then an entire new recipe that utilizes the infusion. In this case Olio Santo is used to flavor Grilled Pizza Bianca.
The book flows like that through its entirety. Yummy infusions followed by delicious ways to use them.
The books starts with oils, but then moves to spirits.
Roasted Pineapple Mezcal? Yes!
The final section of the book is for waters. I have to admit that I have not considered infusing waters with anything other than lemons or strawberries, but am now looking at my produce and spice drawers in a whole new light.
Jalapeño-Spiked Grapefruit Water!
Sunday Morning Reviver
I may not try every recipe in this book, but there are enough that are going to become staples in my house that it deserves some space on the bookshelf.
