Cheryl Day s Treasury of Southern Baking Book Review:

“The definitive book on Southern baking . . . a master class in making memorable baked goods.” —Bon Appétit Named a Best Cookbook of Fall 2021 by Eater Named a Best Cookbook to Read and Gift by Thrillist Named a Top 10 Most Anticipated Cookbook of Fall 2021 by Stained Page News There is nothing more satisfying or comforting than tying on a favorite apron and baking something delicious. And nowhere has this been so woven into life than in the American South, where the attitude is that every day is worthy of a special treat from the kitchen. Cheryl Day, one of the South’s most respected bakers, a New York Times bestselling author, and co-owner—with her husband, Griff—of Savannah’s acclaimed Back in the Day Bakery, is a direct descendent of this storied Southern baking tradition. Literally: her great-great-grandmother was an enslaved pastry cook famous for her biscuits and cakes. Now Cheryl brings together her deep experience, the conversations she’s had with grandmothers and great-aunts and sister-bakers, and her passion for collecting local cookbooks and handwritten recipes in a definitive collection of over two hundred tried-and-true recipes that celebrate the craft of from-scratch Southern baking. Flaky, buttery biscuits. Light and crisp fritters. Muffins and scones with a Southern twist, using ingredients like cornmeal, pecans, sorghum, and cane syrup. Cookies that satisfy every craving. The big spectacular cakes, of course, layer upon layer bound by creamy frosting, the focal point of every celebration. And then the pies. Oh, the pies! The book steeps the baker in not only the recipes, ingredients, and special flavor profiles of Southern baking but also the very nuances of how to be a better baker. With Cheryl as your guide, it’s like having generations of Southern bakers standing over your shoulder, showing you just how to cream butter and sugar, fold whipped egg whites into batter, adjust for the temperature and humidity in your kitchen, and master those glorious piecrusts by overcoming the thing that experienced bakers know—a pie dough can sense fear! Time to get out that apron.

Buttercream Dreams Book Review:

The founder of Smallcakes, featured on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, shares his story and his recipes for cupcakes, ice creams, and other delights. Jeff Martin created the wildly popular and fast-growing Smallcakes franchise, and in this book he shares not only thirty creative recipes but his experiences turning his passion into a business and coming up with some of his very first signature cupcake flavors like Cookies-n-Cream. He appeared on the Food Network’s reality show called Cupcake Wars—and famously became the guy who forgot the pumpkin in a pumpkin cupcake challenge. That popular recipe for a Pumpkin Cupcake with Cardamon buttercream is among the recipes in this book. He introduces creative new flavors like Peanut Butter Pretzel and French Toast with Bacon, and since Smallcakes is a family-owned company, he also includes his kids’ favorites. His son Jax loves bubble gum, so they created a Bubblegum Cupcake. His daughter Lily asked her dad to come up with some crazy flavors like Orange Creamsicle and Caramel Pecan Carrot Cake. And cupcakes are only the beginning—you’ll also find recipes for ice cream and other confections offered now at Smallcakes locations, such as Nutella Wella Ice Cream, Mama’s Chocolate Fudge, and Smallcakes Crazy Monster Cookies.

My Sweet Mexico Book Review:

After years spent traveling and sampling sweets throughout her native Mexico, celebrated pastry chef Fany Gerson shares the secrets behind her beloved homeland’s signature desserts in this highly personal and authoritative cookbook. Skillfully weaving together the rich histories that inform the country’s diverse culinary traditions, My Sweet Mexico is a delicious journey into the soul of the cuisine. From yeasted breads that scent the air with cinnamon, anise, sugar, fruit, and honey, to pushcarts that brighten plazas with paletas and ice creams made from watermelon, mango, and avocado, Mexican confections are like no other. Stalwarts like Churros, Amaranth Alegrías, and Garibaldis—a type of buttery muffin with apricot jam and sprinkles—as well as Passion Fruit–Mezcal Trifle and Cheesecake with Tamarind Sauce demonstrate the layering of flavors unique to the world of dulces. In her typical warm and enthusiastic style, Gerson explains the significance of indigenous ingredients such as sweet maguey plants, mesquite, honeys, fruits, and cacao, and the happy results that occur when combined with Spanish troves of cinnamon, wheat, fresh cow’s milk, nuts, and sugar cane. In chapters devoted to breads and pastries, candies and confections, frozen treats, beverages, and contemporary desserts, Fany places cherished recipes in context and stays true to the roots that shaped each treat, while ensuring they’ll yield successful results in your kitchen. With its blend of beloved standards from across Mexico and inventive, flavor-forward new twists, My Sweet Mexico is the only guide you need to explore the delightful universe of Mexican treats.
