Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito’s 2008 dessert book, Baked, was published to national critical acclaim and raved about across the blogosphere. Since then, the duo’s 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 the 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, including Banana Cream Pie, Black & White Cookies, and Mississippi Mud Pie. Readers will love this collection of 75 recipes, from breakfast treats to late-night confections and everything in between.
