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.

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.
by Harry Abrams,
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.
