This self-published book from the Long Island-born author is a world away from the usual manuals written by professional pastry chefs. The creative recipes fuse Asian ingredients and sensibilities with classic French technique, and ‘The Licker Laws’ aim to give readers the rules they need to transform a mere dessert into what the author calls “a profoundly memorable experience.”
Cooking from a Professional Point of View. All-American fat kid turns into award winning pastry chef. The irony from overdosing on candy bars to winning Iron Chef Thailand has been carved out by a road not taken by most. Lickerland, Asian-Accented Desserts by Jason Licker, is a collection of sublime creations and incredible life experiences that led Jason to over a decade of working in Asia. Immersing himself in different cultures opened his mind and molded his view on designing innovative pastry. Dynamic flavor profiles, textural contrasts and temperature differences are the core building blocks of a well balance Licker dessert. Laugh from some crazy adventures in Asia, become mesmerized by the brilliant photography and re-create Jason’s stunning desserts in your kitchen. Welcome to Lickerland.
