Dulce de Leche shows you how to make artisanal dulce de leche at home, then prepare it in 80+ recipes, from breakfast muffins to Bacon-Wrapped Dulce Jalapenos.

No matter where you come from, there will always be one food that is a part of your life—the flavor of comfort, where just a taste represents home. Without question, the humble boiled milk and sugar jam known as dulce de leche is just such a cultural food phenomenon in countries like Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Brazil.
In Dulce de Leche, you’ll discover the sweet soul of real dulce de leche when you learn how to make the traditional recipe as well as several variations. You'll cook your way through the day with your dulce de leche, from breakfast muffins, medialunas, and panqueques, to picadas for cocktail hour, and on dinner entrees and pies.

Creamy and gently sweet, you’ll see how just a couple spoonfuls of dulce de leche will enhances the flavor of grains, fruits, vegetables, cheese, and even poultry. In fact, you might find it becomes a new family tradition.
