Sweet & Salty Recipes from New York's Most Creative Bakery by Agatha Kulaga & Erin Patinkin (Hardcover—2014)
With lines out the door for their coveted Bloody Mary scones, pear and sour cherry cardamom pie, and caramel bacon hot tarts, New York's award-winning bakery Ovenly is world-renowned for their innovative and exquisite treats. Using unexpected flavour combinations by playing with tradition, testing the limits of indulgence, and perfecting the balance of savoury and sweet—adding just a hint of spice—it's no wonder Ovenly consistently receives rave reviews and has dedicated cult-like fans and clientele.
The Ovenly cookbook is packed with all of their greatest hits—the best ever chocolate chip cookies; dense, crumbly shortbreads; smoky, beer-slicked caramel corn; buttery scones; rich, layered cakes; bacony peanuts—plus pages devoted to recipe riffs and spin-offs. As self-taught, curious cooks, Agatha Kulaga and Erin Patinkin have a straight-talking approach that is never too fussy and always encourages experimentation. Above all, they believe that cooking (and eating!) should be an adventure.
