Synopsis|Table of Contents


Sugar Rush is a complete baking course in a book with everything a home baker needs to confidently turn out 150+ sweets with sophisticated flavors.
James Beard–award-winning pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini returns to basics, sharing his expert tips on fundamentals such as making caramel and mixing butter cakes, with accompanying step-by-step photographs, before moving on to recipes for Salted Caramels and Sticky Caramel Date Cake. After mastering the simple method for making light-as-air meringues, anyone can make ethereal espresso marshmallows, mile-high soufflés, and chewy French macaron sandwich cookies. Readers can finally expand their cake and ice cream horizons to embrace flavors as thrilling as those in Brown Sugar-Molasses Layer Cake and Bitter Orange Ice Cream. The 250 photographs include both instructive technique shots to reassure bakers at every turn as well as stunning photographs of the ready-to-eat treats. With Sugar Rush, baking at home has never been easier—or more inviting.

“It’s always a pleasure to see the fireworks that a master pastry chef like Johnny can produce. But what makes this book indispensable to anybody who loves to bake is the way he explains basic baking principles and shares his vast knowledge. Every kitchen should have this book, including mine.”
--Duff Goldman
"I was first introduced to Johnny Iuzzini's artistry at Jean-Georges. He's like a modern-day Willy Wonka, creating desserts with a whimsical nature—and because I am a passionate lover of all things sweet, I became a huge fan. This book is a great way for people to take his playful spin on desserts and re-create them in their own home."
--Giada De Laurentiis
