Lickerland by Jason Licker

It's pastry genius two-fer week. Yesterday, I wrote and shared a promotion on Will Goldfarb's Room for Dessert and today I am highlighting the equally brilliant Jason Licker's Lickerland: Asian-Accented Desserts.

Jason self-published Lickerland in 2016 and has been the recipient of well-deserved accolades. Recently, he was nominated for three awards at the World Gourmand Cookbook Awards (he came in second) and in 2017 garnered a James Beard nomination  in the Cooking From a Professional Point of View category - a rare occurrence for a self-published title.

The "Iron Chef Thailand" winner (yes, he is a rock star) is not only on the cutting edge of pastry design with his signature "Asian-accented" desserts - he carved out an entirely new edge himself. Working at resorts in China, Macau, Bangkok and Hong Kong over 12 years, he honed his passion for desserts that hit all four taste centers on the tongue - sweet, sour, salty and bitter and all with Asian flavors. 

This book is not only stunningly photographed and filled with desserts that will delight and inspire - Jason's instructions are so detailed and thoughtful that any level of baker should achieve success. 

I am lured in by the extraordinary and unique and Lickerland reaches new heights in both elegant desserts with innovative flavors. Measurements are given in weight with the book divided into the following chapters Cakes & Such; The Art of the Tart; Cups & Glasses; Puffs & Stuff; Composed & Refined, Last Bites and ending with Praline Crunch Master Recipe & Tempering Chocolate Basics and Lickerland Step-by-Step Core Recipes such as Toffee and Pâte à choux.

This book is everything and more and is guaranteed to please dessert makers, those who are intrigued with Asian flavors as well as those who simply love beautiful cookbooks. 

Jason shared the materials we needed to create an amazing  for our members as well as  for the following dishes.

Now for the giveaway.

    Asian creamsicle and matcha tart look fabulous. Have to admit I am a bit intimidated given the gorgeous photos and multiple sub-recipes in the Book Preview, but it's a gorgeous book, and I just might need to enlist help for a group cooking project.
