The Boozy Baker: 75 Recipes for Spirited Sweets - Lucy Baker

Booze, baked goods and books - what more do you need to know? Lucy Baker is going to share her "spirited sweets" with us - tips and trick and bites of course.

Lucy will be interviewed by Caroline Russock, who writes the Cook the Book column for Serious Eats. Yeah! Join us for a delicious evening. Facebook RSVP encouraged.

About the book:

The Boozy Baker: 75 Recipes for Spirited Sweets is a collection of cakes, pies, tarts, cookies and more, all of which contain a healthy dose of alcohol. Home bakers will recognize classic treats such as profiteroles, peach cobbler, and spiced Bundt cake, and be delighted by the ways they are reinvented with chocolate stout, almond liqueur, and even Jägermeister. “Sidebars” with instructions for preparing funky cocktails add a punchy compliment to many of the recipes. In addition, brief notes provide cultural information about the alcohol used (what is Arak, anyway?), ideas for quick substitutions (no Sauternes? Riesling will do), and cooking tips (what can be made ahead and what absolutely must be devoured straight from the pan). Whether you are a pastry perfectionist or a one-bowl beginner, a bonafide mixologist or just looking for a way to polish off a few dusty bottles, this cookbook is sure to become a favorite, its pages splattered with chocolate, sprinkled with sugar…and garnished with a twist.
