Infuse: Oil, Spirit, Water by Eric Prum & Josh Williams, is an aesthetically pleasing cookbook that will teach you everything you need to know about infusing oil, spirits and water with some of the most delicious ingredients. Once you are done looking through the pages of this gorgeous book, you will want to get your hands on some mason jars and get to work.
Eric Prum and Josh Williams are two friends who share the same passion for enhancing things that are already delicious and making them even more spectacular. Infuse is broken into four parts: 1. the basics; materials you will need to get started. 2. oil; where you will find recipes for grilled pizza Bianca, simple vinaigrette, flash-infused oils and more. 3. Spirit; where they share the recipe that started it all – peach bourbon along with so many more recipes that are perfect for a hot afternoon or a chilly night. 4. water; there are some delicious additions to water that are sure to brighten any meal – the ones that I cannot get enough of right now are for cold brewed teas: lemongrass green tea, honey-peach black tea, lavender meyer lemon mint tea and summer berry hibiscus tea. Are you thirsty, yet?
This book does a fantastic job of telling you exactly how to make these divine infusions as well as how long it will take for them to be infused to perfection. With 50 recipes for you to enjoy this book would be perfect for anyone who loves to eat and loves flavor. This book may be just what you need to take your cooking and bartending to the next level. I love that when I finished flipping through this book there were multiple recipes that I wanted to try.
Here is a link to Eric and Josh’s website, The Mason Shaker where you can learn more about the authors as well as purchase their mason tap and mason shaker. If you are a fan of this book then you will most definitely want to check out their other title published in 2014, which I think would be the perfect addition to any bar cart as well as a fantastic house-warming gift paired with some bar tools or mason jars.
Infuse is published by Clarkson Potter/Publishers an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group, a division of Penguin Random House, May 2015. I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
