The New Sugar and Spice
with Samantha Seneviratne
Tuesday, September 8, 5:00-7:00PM
Oaktown Spice Shop, 546 Grand Avenue, Oakland

Join us for a book signing event with Samantha Seneviratne, author of The New Sugar and Spice!

The New Sugar and Spice offers a collection of desserts showcasing spice over sugar, with recipes that both reinvent classic sweets and introduce more unusual spice-infused desserts.

Each chapter centers on a different flavor profile - some familiar, like vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger; others less expected in sweet preparation, such as peppercorns, chiles, and cardamom.

The New Sugar and Spice features dishes such as Gingered Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Blackberry Lavender Clafoutis, Salt and Pepper Caramel Brownies, and Fig and Fennel Seed Biscotti.

Samantha Seneviratne is a New York-based food writer, recipe developer and food stylist. She blogs about dessert at Love, Cake.
