Making your first real Caramel is one of the truly great experiences that a cook has in the kitchen. Here are the formulas and recipes.

Do you love Caramel?  There is nothing better than handmade Caramel.  I make the process simple.  I examine several different methods, describe the benefits of each, and make those accessible for the home cook.  We'll talk about crystallization, safety, equipment, and how to make your own amazing caramel treats!  From sauces to various flavored candies, you will soon be making extraordinary caramel to amaze your friends.  There will even be some dessert recipes that highlight caramel exceptionally well.  Whether you are an inexperienced cook or a professional, this book will teach you something new.  

The money will be used for cover design, material cost, and shipping to you!

Here are some photos we took during recipe development.  Not using any professional equipment.  Done in my girlfriend's kitchen.

Caramel is something I have tons of experience working with as a Chef and Chocolatier. I am familiar with the process of teaching others these processes as I have done in books such as, "Chocolate Truffles, a beginners guide". The key will be to provide various options for the level of experience and comfort that each reader will possess.
