Praise for Malts & Milkshakes

“A tempting array of summer-perfect desserts.” —Jackie Burrell, San Jose Mercury News

I'm especially hooked on those beautiful, boozy shakes, the subject of Autumn's new book.... There are some very adult beverages on these pretty pages, including the Not Your Grandma's Apple Pie Shake, the Salt and Pepper Malt, and the Chocolate Espresso Whiskey Malt (make that one mine, please).” —Leslie Kelly, Seattle Magazine

“This is a perfect cookbook for summer. There are so many inviting recipes you won't know which one to choose to make first.” —Tampa Bay Times

“When Malts & Milkshakes...arrived in our office we were instantly enamored.” —South Sound Magazine

“Sixty variations on the creamy drink, all of them perfect for summer.” —The Daily Herald

“For Martin, creativity is key.... The cookbook showcases her diverse experience and tastes, ranging from the richness of a S'more shake to a surprising Watermelon Lime shake.... The book even caters to special dietary needs, so no one gets left out. It includes a non-dairy homemade ice cream made from coconut and hemp milk along with other all-natural ingredients that make for a delightful substitute.” —Josh Kerns,

Malts & Milkshakes will inspire you to take your homemade milkshake game to a gourmet level.... Milk shakes are the new juice fast.” —
