I had the pleasure to attend this great event featuring the cookbook Desserts in a Jar by Shaina Olmanson, which is very popular because the facility the is to make this kind of desserts as a gift, go to meal or just a different way to serve in your house.
In this particular event the girl scout of San Diego were invited to join Executive Chef Bridget for a #Dessertsinjars adventure, by recreating one of the recipes on the book Campfire Bars in Jar. Just in time for summer camping.
In this event we learn about the book Desserts in Jars, includes 50 inventive ideas full of sugar and spice and a whole lot else that is nice, from cobblers and custards to cupcakes and creme brulees, all presented beautifully in a jar. Some of the desserts are baked right in the jar, while others use the jar as an easy and elegant serving dish.
For gift-giving, there is a special chapter devoted to mixes with dry ingredients attractively layered in the jar, this is the best gift to give in birthdays, anniversaries, christmas, etc.
Is a must have book and we highly recommended.
