Beard On Books With Sweet Sugar, Sultry Spice

Mention spice and dessert, and you’re likely to leap to gingerbread or pumpkin pie. But Malika Ameen is on a mission to expand the spice rack’s role in the world of sweets. Her new cookbook, Sweet Sugar, Sultry Spice: Exotic Flavors to Wake Up Your Baking, pushes the boundaries and dares home cooks to incorporate savory standbys like peppercorns and za’atar into their cakes, tarts, cookies, ice cream, and more, promising a complexity and punch of flavor to add depth to recipes both old and new.
