Editorial Reviews

Review

"These aren't your grandmother's gobs" - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Word is the latest confection to enter the sweets fray is the gob, a western Pennsylvania favorite that San Francisco transplant Steve Gdula is now taking worldwide." - Modern Tonic

"[Gdula] has moved far beyond the typical chocolate-vanilla pairing... Half the fun of the book lies in Gdula's chatty, witty descriptions." - Bay Area News Group

His writing has appeared in Details, the Washington Post, Time Out, the Advocate, Cooking Light, and elsewhere, and he is the author of The Warmest Room in the House, an American social history of the kitchen.

More About the Author

Bio
Steven Gdula was born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania in 1963. He grew up eating gobs and great Hungarian food in a house that was always filled with music. He's written a lot of magazine and web articles over the last 20 odd years. Many of those were about food, but most of them were about music. He's also written three books. Two of those were about eating, cooking, baking, and kitchen history. And one of them included 52 recipes and tales from selling gobs on the street. The other book was about a collection of T shirts he found archived away in a museum. He currently lives in San Francisco where he eats, drinks, bakes, blogs, plays bass and publishes DINOSAUR, an independent publication defying cultural extinction.

We have been buying -- and savoring -- Steve's gobs since he started Gobba Gobba Hey! So I put out an APB for his cookbook and bought it as soon as it was humanly possible. His recipes are as lovable as his personality (both in-person and in print) -- heartfelt, whimsical, delicious, and just generally wonderful. I'm especially excited that I can now give this book as a gift to my non-San Francisco-based friends who've been wondering what the heck we've been making such a fuss about. Soon we will ALL be gobsters! ;-)

My first gob was off Steven's tray on a trip to San Francisco. Since then, we've had them shipped to us cross-country whenever they are available. Now, I can make my own! The recipes are delicious and fun. Sourcing some of the ingredients is a little harder on the East Coast, but the rewards are so worth it. And beyond the great recipes, the stories and inspiration behind them are the true high point of this book. We love it!

Great recipes that update the classic Pennsylvania Gob. Steven's flavor combinations are imaginative, but they can be costly and hard to find. One gob recipe calls for both Irish Cream and expensive Bushmills whiskey. Another calls for Ube paste, which is both expensive and difficult to find.

Other recipes, like the Strawberry Shortcake Gob shine. The touch of lemon and basil are special, but not excessive. I'd recommend the book for the shell recipes alone- I have yet to faithfully follow the buttercream recipes.

First time that I've read a cookbook cover-to-cover, this well-assembled volume not only offers some tantalizing and inventive recipes, but its writing is pretty tasty too. Can't wait to try some of these confections in my own kitchen!
