it is now april 2010, and i am jogging with my dog under the city stars, remembering that november 2009 day when i brought the wedding cake to be photographed at the Mauna Kea National Park which coincidentally was the same day i received my first copy of the book.  the moment was so compelling that i wrote this review on

  1. Hector, I have the same sugars available here in New England, isn’t that interesting?

    I find that with the large crystal turbinado, it is necessary to sift or strain it after grinding to superfine, as many large crystals are left in the mix even when it appears to be uniformly superfine.
