Dorie Greenspan, Baking with Dorie: Sweet, Salty & Simple
Rakestraw Books is delighted to present a special virtual event with renowned cookbook author Dorie Greenspan!
Say "Dorie Greenspan" and you think baking. The beloved author of thirteen cookbooks and winner of five James Beard and two IACP awards offers Baking with Dorie: Sweet, Salty, & Simple, a collection that celebrates the sweet, the savory, and the simple. Every recipe is signature Dorie: easy--beginners can ace every technique in this book--and accessible, made with everyday ingredients. Are there surprises? Of course! You'll find ingenious twists like Berry Biscuits. Footlong cheese sticks made with cream puff dough. Apple pie with browned butter spiced like warm mulled cider. A s'mores ice cream cake with velvety chocolate sauce, salty peanuts, and toasted marshmallows. It's a book of simple yet sophisticated baking. The chapters are classic: Breakfast Stuff - Cakes - Cookies - Pies, Tarts, Cobblers and Crisps - Two Perfect Little Pastries - Salty Side Up. The recipes are unexpected. And there are "Sweethearts" throughout, mini collections of Dorie's all-time favorites. Don't miss the meringue Little Marvels or the Double-Decker Caramel Cake. Like all of Dorie's recipes, they lend themselves to being remade, refashioned, and riffed on.
For this special event, Dorie Greenspan will be joined in conversation by cookbook author and editior Leslie Jonath (one of Rakestraw's best friends!). Your ticket will include an autographed copy of Baking with Dorie.
Tickets are $40 (includes a book and a donation to the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano).
