Favourite and contemporary molasses recipes from restaurants and chefs across Canada.
For many, molasses conjures up memories of favourite desserts and baked beans. Today, Canadian chefs are making use of this traditional ingredient in a wide range of innovative appetizers and entrées as well as desserts and baked goods. This unique cookbook offers the best of both classic and contemporary recipes that feature molasses.
Author Joy Crosby's family business is molasses, so she has been more aware than most of the renewed interest in this heritage ingredient. For this book, Joy contacted the chefs at leading restaurants across Canada and asked for their most innovative and successful recipes using molasses. She tested and tasted the contributions, and from the best chose this collection of recipes.
Among the 50+ recipes in this collection are Pork Tenderloin with Molasses Glaze and Carmelized Apples (Victoria Village Inn, Victoria by the Sea, (PEI);Oatmeal and Flaxseed Bread (Mojo, Regina); and Warm Gingerbread & Pumpkin Molasses Ice Cream (Wickaninnish Inn, Tofino, BC).
Others include Scallops infused with Lemongrass and Molasses (Racines, Fredericton); Cold Smoked Duck with Molasses Marmalade and Sweet Potato (Little Britt Inn, Britt, ON); and Sake-Molasses Sabayon(Wild Tangerine, Edmonton).
