Front Cover
ABRAMS, Dec 12, 2011 - Cooking - 208 pages
Traditional treats get an innovative twist in these seventy-two recipes from the owners of the famous Baked bakeries.

In Baked Explorations, Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, owners of the acclaimed Baked NYC and Baked Charleston, put a modern spin on America’s most famous sweet treats.

From Mississippi Mud Pie to New York’s Black & White Cookie and the classic Devil’s Food Cake with Angel Frosting, these are the desserts that have been passed down for generations, newly updated with Lewis and Poliafito’s signature tongue-in-cheek style—just like Baked’s most in-demand item, also included here, the Sweet and Salty Brownie.

They may not be your grandma’s treats, but these new renditions of old favorites will have everyone begging for more.
