Pour les amateurs de spiritueux et de cocktails, les curieux presque geek... Ils seront ravis pas ce livre qui donne une explication sur les principales sources de sucre pour la fermentations et ingrédients pour aromatiser gin liqueurs et autres cocktails. Le livre est bien écrit, joliment relié, agréable à lire.
I have a copy of "Wicked Plants" and though it could not get any better. Well this book might not be getter but a lot more information that helps with understanding economic history and planning gardens. If I do nothing but lounging on the veranda drinking mint julep watching the weeds grow in my half planted garden, at least this book is really entertaining.
I do not know haw Amy Stewart can pack so many unique detail in such a small book.
I saw a page on Tamarind and finally figured out what I have been drinking for years.
This book is super interesting and I am enjoying the read very much. It flows very nicely so it is easy to read and the information it contains is fascinating, educational and even funny at times. I higly recommend it. So far all the cocktail recipes I have tried have produced delicious drinks!
As a bartender i really liked all the botanist explanations of those plants i work with everyday and never really thought about. This book would also really pleased any spirits or plants lover. Thank you for feeding my curiosity!!!!
