Not only is this book gorgeous, it's incredibly accessible. Baked, the beloved Brooklyn-based bakery, puts an original twist on treasured favorites — the desserts your grandma used to make, only better. Yeah, I said it. Your grandma can deal.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As featured on The Martha Stewart Show and the Today Show and in People magazine! Hip. Cool. Fashion-forward. These aren't adjectives you'd ordinarily think of applying to baked goods. Think again. Not every baker wants to re-create Grandma's pound cake or cherry pie. Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito certainly didn't, when they left their advertising careers behind, pooled their life savings, and opened their dream bakery, Baked, in Brooklyn, New York, a few years back. The visions that danced in their heads were of other, brand-new kinds of confections...

Things like a Malt Ball Cake with Milk Chocolate Frosting, which captures the flavor of their favorite Whoppers candies (and ups the ante with a malted milk ball garnish). Things like spicy Chipotle Cheddar Biscuits that really wake up your taste buds at breakfast time. Things like a Sweet and Salty Cake created expressly for adults who are as salt-craving as they are sweet-toothed. Which is not to say that Lewis and Poliafito sidestep tradition absolutely. Their Chocolate Pie (whose filling uses Ovaltine) pays loving homage to the classic roadside-diner dessert. Their Baked Brownies will wow even the most discriminating brownie connoisseur. And their Chocolate Chip Cookies? Words cannot describe. Whether trendsetting or tried-and-true, every idea in this book is freshly Baked.

Synopsis:

Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito's 2008 Baked was published to national critical acclaim and raved about across the blogosphere. Since then, their profile has gotten even bigger, with continued praise from Oprah and Martha Stewart; product availability in every Whole Foods across the U.S.; and a new bakery in Charleston, South Carolina, with even more traffic than their original Brooklyn location. Now, in Baked Explorations, the authors give their signature "Baked" twists to famous desserts from across the country. Here is their take on our most treasured desserts: Banana Cream Pie, Black and White Cookies, Mississippi Mud Pie, and more — from the overworked to the under-appreciated. Readers will love this collection of 75 recipes from breakfast treats to late-night confections and everything in between.

Not only is Baked Explorations a terrific, easy-to-follow cookbook, but it's also a great read... and as someone who spends most mornings eating breakfast while reading a cookbook, I appreciate that! A sense of humor and willingness to buck both tradition and common conceptions of desserts makes for one of the best cookbooks of 2010!

These guys are amazing and their passion for all things delicious/baked is inspiring. Their approach to recipe writing is simple, clear and entertaining. Even the most timid of at home cooks will have success with the recipes from this book.
