Sweet & Savory Cookbook


A surprising and satisfying collection of over eighty recipes by Hollywood caterer and food writer Gwen Kenneally that tantalizes with sweet and savory curiosities

Recipes include Strawberry Salsa, Jalapeño Cornbread, Peach Pecan Chicken, Sweet Potato Salad, and Green Tea and Chocolate Truffles. The notion of sweet and savory isn’t new—after all, a popular chocolate candy has been betrothed to peanut butter for years. And a century ago, frugal cooks mixed up leftovers with whatever they found in their kitchens, often resulting in culinary discoveries such as sauerkraut mixed in cake batter made a moister cake, with a savory edge.

Now, like never before, the savory and sweet combo is taking the food world by storm. The saltier, the brinier, the sweeter, the stickier . . . the better. The culinary landscape has become a place of art, adventure, and a bit of science with flavors taking on bold identities, mandating that alternating flavors complement each other.

Gwen’s high-profile clientele expects her to keep up with trends as well as pave the way. She is known for blending contemporary creativity with family recipes, comfort foods, and diversity in her menu planning. In this, her first cookbook, she shares recipes that are hits at Hollywood affairs, political fund-raisers, and family gatherings. Her recipes are exciting and accessible, and intriguing enough for the accomplished cook, though not intimidating for the novice chef.

Artfully illustrated by New York designer Alexandra Conn, Sweet and Savory Cookbook is a wonderful addition to the cookbook collection of the forward-thinking, food-loving kitchen.
