Publisher Comments:

Want to fry up the doughnuts with cinnamon sugar and mascarpone that Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis called the "best thing I ever ate"? Are you pining for the peanut butter sandwich cookie recipe that legendary writer Nora Ephron proclaimed "the greatest cookie ever ever ever"? Do you long to dazzle friends with the triple coconut cream pie that New York food writer and Serious Eats founder Ed Levine called "one of the best pies in the country"? Or do you just want to get your hands on the crazy-rich, streusel-topped monkey bread with caramel dipping sauce that has people lining up outside the Dahlia Bakery's door? Now, those sweet dreams can come true, thanks to The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook.

Seattle's most popular chef and James Beard Outstanding Restaurateur Award winner Tom Douglas shares his secrets for 125 scrumptious treats. Here, you will find chef-tested recipes for breakfasts, pastries, tarts, pies, cakes, cupcakes, cookies, puddings, ice creams, sandwiches, and jams that are guaranteed to work in the home kitchen, including:

  • The "Seattle" English muffin sandwich with cured wild salmon
  • Toasted hazelnut whole wheat scones with maple glaze
  • Tom's favorite coconut macaroons
  • Tangy lemon meringue tart
  • Carrot cupcakes with brown butter cream cheese frosting
  • The Best Créme Caramel in the World
  • Oregon Pinot Noir raspberry sorbet
  • Peach vanilla jam

In addition to these unique bakery treats, Tom offers savory variations on beloved classics, such as Eggs Benedict with Scallion Hollandaise and Breakfast Sandwiches, both using Dahlia Bakery's famous English Muffins. Filled with informative sidebars, technique tips, and equipment advice — and illustrated with tempting photographs and stories that capture the flavors of Seattle — The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook is sure to please fans of all skill levels and tastes.

Review:

"In The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook, Tom Douglas has created the volume every cook should have on baking. It's useful not only because it compiles the recipes that have delighted Seattle residents for years (my parents included) but also because of the colorful prose and resource guides. It will occupy a prominent shelf in my kitchen." Mario Batali

Synopsis:

When it comes to delectable, freshly baked cakes, pies, cookies, and muffins, nobody beats the world famous Dahlia Bakery of Seattle, Washington. Owner, Iron Chef, and James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Tom Douglas offers up the best loved recipes from this incomparable bread and pastries mecca in The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook — featuring everything from breakfast to cookies and cake to soups and jams and more — demonstrating why the West Coast wonder has long been a favorite of foodies and celebrities, like Food Network's Giada De Laurentiis and Serious Eats founder Ed Levine.

About the Author

Tom Douglas, a Delaware native, grew up on blue crabs steamed with loads of Old Bay spice, but he later moved to Seattle, where Dungeness is king. For the last twenty years, Tom's Dungeness crab cakes have been one of the top-selling dishes in his popular restaurants. Along with his wife and business partner, Jackie Cross, Tom owns four of Seattle's most exciting restaurants: Dahlia Lounge, Etta's, Palace Kitchen, and Lola, as well as Dahlia Bakery and a catering business, Tom Douglas Catering and Events. Tom is the author of Tom Douglas' Seattle Kitchen, which won a James Beard Award, and Tom's Big Dinners. Tom and Jackie live in Seattle, Washington, with their daughter, Loretta.
