Gourmet sugars are the multiple types of sugars used in gourmet cooking. They are very versatile when it comes to culinary uses. They come in several types: castor sugar, brown sugar, icing sugar, breakfast sugar. They are obviously aimed towards a refined set of dishes, namely baked ones and desserts.

The quality of the sugar matters a lot because the key flavour in any dessert is sweetness and if it’s not well balanced, it can nullify all your efforts.

  • Replace regular sugar with Solar castor sugar in cakes: Due to the fact that castor sugar melts like a dream, it gives a smoother texture to the cake batter.
