Revue de presse

"Learn to expect the unexpected from Sweet and Vicious. There is a fantastical element to the book that adds another dimension. What birthday reveler wouldn't be charmed by the mile-high cotton candy that garnishes the Fairground Attraction Cake? The fact that the recipes are extremely user-friendly and well-written adds to Summers' credibility...Clearly, she knows how to have fun, but she's also not afraid to get a little bawdy, with recipes like Looking for Mr. Goodbar Cake, Stoned Tart, and Retired Gingerbread Working Girls." -Philadelphia Inquirer

“Summers calls it baking with attitude–fearless and fun. Make your guests giggle and sigh as they slice into chocolate Post-Coital Pie or reach for another of Bob’s Fried Firecrackers. This is the only baking book I’ve ever seen that encourages you to change the recipes–”and make them more personal, more provocative.” And a provocative creativity is Summers’ main ingredient in chapters on cakes, sweet and savory breads and pastries, pies, cookies, even dog treats. But to break the rules, you need to learn them and Summers includes good basic skills and recipes. By the way, this stuff works. I took those Side Slap and Tickle Cookies to a party and made a new friend who fell for the malt and chocolate flavors. And the Pull-Apart Boy Bread flavored with garlic, olive oil, and grated Parmesan? It was pulled apart–fast–and devoured. When you need to make a statement or get some attention–make it Sweet & Vicious.” -Appetite for Books

"Rich in butter, sugar and spice, these recipes are not for the dieter or the faint of heart. With 100 recipes to choose from, it'll be hard for readers to decide where to start, but try the "Wahini Pie," a macadamia nut version of the traditional pecan pie, and there'll be no going back to your old recipes. Discover: Interesting new flavors blended together turn conventional desserts upside down." -Shelf Awareness

“Bake with attitude using blogger and style-maven Libbie Summer’s outrageously fun cookbook, Sweet & Vicious.”Southern Living

"...I absolutely loved it! Infused with Libbie Summers' humor and peppered with wonderful personal anecdotes, Sweet & Vicious offers recipes that take you a little out of your comfort zone - that make you a little less timid, a little more adventurous. They beg you to test your limits just ever so slightly - or sweetly... These recipes dare you to have fun, to enjoy, to be a little risky -or risque... It's a book you not only want to look at, but you will want to read - the back stories to many of these recipes are wonderful."  -The Entertaining House
 
“…challenges and charms our taste buds with daring delectables...Sweet & Vicious, the follow-up to her Whole Hog cookbook, dares us to take chances with fearless flavor combos in whimsical recipes with names that would make your grandmother blush…The cookbook is artfully rendered and tactile, just like the recipes inside, filled with stories that are, by turns, funny…” –Savannah Magazine
 
"This highly anticipated followup focuses on baking, using the same fun and creative outlook as its predecessor. Libbie's hilarious stories are still prevalent throughout the book, as are the outstanding photos...As expected, I can wholeheartedly recommend this lovely and edgy cookbook. Both recipes I've tried so far (and I guarantee there will be more soon) have hit the mark on all levels. If you love to bake and you're looking for some new and inventive ways to heat up your kitchen, Sweet and Vicious is the book for you." -MissionFood

"Libbie Summers expertly breaks down the inhibitions that we bring to baking (that notoriously finicky frontier for home cooks) and leads us to a freer, more creative place, where playfulness is paramount--and where the buttercream, flour and sugar boogie/breakdance together! "Sweet & Vicious" is an insanely colorful, energizing read, as well as a practical guide to creating more showstopping sweets."  –Matt Lee and Ted Lee, authors of The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen
 
“Wow! Be prepared to be inspired, enlightened, and delighted with these wonderfully diverse desserts, from Libbie Summers. Smoky, savory, salty, fruity, and fiery flavors come together in this collection of anything-but-ordinary cakes, breads, cookies…and more!”  –David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen and Ready for Dessert
 
“What a gorgeous, divine, beautiful, sweet and saucy cook book. Not only do I want to make and eat everything in the book, I want to EAT the BOOK!”  –Carson Kressley, Emmy Award winning television personality
 
"Miss Libbie never misses: she's a vicious talent who just happens to be a sweetheart, too...I can't wait to make every single one of these fantastic and fun-filled fabulous recipes!"  –Alex Hitz, creator of The Beverly Hills Kitchen, author of My Beverly Hills Kitchen: Classic Southern Cooking with a French Twist, Food Editor at House Beautiful 
 
“Libbie is a woman who knows how to have a fabulous time, both in and out of the kitchen. As an antidote to sourpuss bakers who take themselves and their "kwee-zeen" a little too seriously, dig into this hunger-inducing book. Open to any page, and I dare you not to blurt out (as I did), "OMG. I need to make that NOW."  –Rick Rodgers, The James Beard Foundation and IACP Award-winning author of over 40 cookbooks including The Chelsea Market Cookbook  
 
Sweet and Vicious is brilliant! Libbie is unstoppable, she has created a book full of surprises. Fun, inspired, full of flavor and most importantly delicious! Thank you Libbie my dogs and I applaud you''  –Grant Harold, royal etiquette consultant and former royal butler to HRH The Prince of Wales
 
"...I devoured this book cover to cover, laughing at her sometimes-bawdy wit and salivating at one enticing concoction after another. Test: If you can read the recipe for Salty Pumpkin Spice Cake and resist the urge to preheat your oven, you might not be from this planet.”  –Joe Yonan, food and travel editor of The Washington Post, author of Eat Your Vegetables
 
"The book is more than just gorgeously frosted cakes — there are plenty of quirky cookies, quick breads, and dog treats (yes, dog treats) that even apprentice-level bakers can tackle with confidence. It's also worth paging through this book just for the ideas alone. I love the flavor combinations and surprise ingredients..." -TheKitchn

Présentation de l'éditeur

An irreverent cookbook filled with inventive recipes for baking that deliver a punch. Libbie Summers is not your run-of-the-mill cook. Growing up, she was the kind of child who dunked her potato chips into chocolate syrup to see if it might taste good (it does). That insatiable curiosity-and sweet tooth-is what fuels this book. Sweet and Vicious is all about exploring new taste sensations in the realm of baking. It is a no-holds-barred approach to baking outside the box with crazy-brilliant combinations. Savory and spicy flavors come into play often, such as in Habanero Carrot Cake, Fig and Pig Pie, and Mojito Cookies. Other times, the innovation comes in the form of a cooking method or serving presentation borrowed from another side of the kitchen, as with Meatball Muffins or Grilled Apricot Polenta Cake. There is also a healthy dose of humor sprinkled around, with recipes such as Gingerbread Working Girls, Preggers Pink Pickle Pie, and Salvation Cinnamon Rolls.

Essential to her philosophy is that sweets are supposed to be over-the-top, and that there is no point in firing up the oven if you are not making something so good it hurts. Sweet and Vicious brings a sense of adventure into the kitchen and some fun into desserts. Isn't that the whole point of dessert, after all?

Joyful, Funny and Viciously Delicious 11 avril 2014
Par Emily A - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was sold on this book before I even opened it—I mean, the fore edges are pink. And what's inside is just as fun, colorful, stylish! Oh, and very delicious too. So far I've made the Salvation Cinnamon Rolls, Bourbon Laced Cookies and Red Velvet Cake and ALL have been major successes. I love how Sweet and Vicious is able to cater to both baking novices and experts while still being an enjoyable page turner filled with wit and humor. It practically drips with joy and color—and has become my new baking go-to.

Fierce and Fabulous! 13 juin 2014
Par erica kelly - Publié sur Amazon.com
My mother is an amazing cook. She can whip up anything out of nothing and has an almond pound cake that should practically have its own Facebook page. But I am not my mother. I've learned to love the taste of raw dough because it ends up tasting better than the "Cookie Crispers" I tried to pass as intentional at my last weekend gathering.

Reading Sweet & Vicious gave me both hope and a few well-crafted side cramps from laughing so hard. Whether you're a baking pro or someone who would rather vicariously live through that pro on Pinterest, you will love this book. Laugh out loud to Libbie's stories, drool at some stunning visual styling, and maybe - just maybe - consider busting out the baking pan.

A must-buy.

Absolutely Delightful! 30 avril 2014
Par Catherine Marafino - Publié sur Amazon.com
Not only is this cookbook full of exciting recipes, but it's such a feast for the eyes! The photography and the graphic design in the book make it such a treat to flip through. It really is a work of art! There is a portion in the back of the cookbook that gives you instructions on how to make your own extracts!

Libbie Summers has taking the intimidating task of baking and turned it into a great big party! I am buying baking pans as I type! I love cookbooks but I have to say this cookbook has a personality all it's own! The writing is wicked funny and the images by Ms. Chong are inspiring. Buy it even if you don't bake. Because after reading this, you will! Have fun!
