Publishers Text

This book takes recipes from vintage recipe booklets from the early to mid-20th century and recasts them as a contemporary baking cookbook with a cool, modern edge. The book is illustrated with images of vintage baking booklet art and photography of many of the modern versions of the recipes. Headnotes briefly describe the origins of the recipe, the booklet from which it came, and how the author perfected its modern makeover. This book upholds the delicious original recipes while also gently nudging them into the 21st century with modern flavors, textures, and techniques.
