Product description


"Sweet rewards made with all-natural ingredients make Candy Is Magic shine. With Jami Curl's clear, easy-to-follow instructions, you'll be making lickable lollypops, chewy caramels, pillowy marshmallows, and fruity gumdrops to the delight of your family and friends. And believe me, if you offer up treats like these, you'll soon have more friends than you know what to do with!"
--DAVID LEBOVITZ, author of My Paris Kitchen

We love Quin Candy in the Jeni's kitchen! We crush the hard candies and twirl the shards into our ice cream or sprinkle on top. Jami's brilliant, creative recipes turn out magical confections -- as great as your favorite candy growing up, and yet better and more fun than it ever was.
--JENI BRITTON BAUER, author of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home and Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream Desserts

An eye-dazzling mix of basic cooking/chemistry lessons and a luxury coffee table topper studded with saturated images that recall geological surveys and precious stones. [...] Candy Is Magic is designed to kickstart creativity on every page; a torrent of recipes and ideas building and building to a crescendo of sugar fever all delivered in Curl's clear, detailed, relentlessly cheerful tone.
--KELLY CLARKE, Portland Montly

Curl's enthusiasm for her craft makes this cookbook a pleasure to read; she is the ideal coach for would-be candy makers.
--Publsihers Weekly

Curl's fearless approach is punctuated by the fact that all her recipes begin in her home kitchen. This means these are no large-scale recipes trimmed down (often with questionable results) for the home cook.
--ERIN PRIDE-SWANEY, Everett Herald

"That emphasis on real, discernible flavors are the essence of Curl's brand--and the balance between youthfully inspired fantastic treats and quality that adults appreciate. It's no surprise her customers are of all ages. Quin Candy is more than just a treat; it's a topic of conversation. [...] It's also is what makes her cookbook so exciting--the concept of making candy can seem daunting to the uninitiated. Creating a homemade version of a Starburst must be impossible without specific sorts of pressure cookers and gelatins and chemical fillers and dyes, but she shows us we can do incredible things with the ingredients that are likely already in our kitchens (although you may need a new thermometer). Curl turns candy-making into a something like a grade school science experiment with sweet results."
