The Great American Bake Sale: Top Chefs Bake from the Heart

Overview

Baking is about memories: recipes handed down from generation to generation and tastes that conjure up childhood. Think of Proust's madeleines or your mom's chocolate cake. Sweets are often bound up in our emotional life as adults, too: they're how we reward ourselves or our children, how we celebrate holidays, birthdays, and special occasions, and how we honor guests.

Overview

Baking is about memories: recipes handed down from generation to generation and tastes that conjure up childhood. Think of Proust's madeleines or your mom's chocolate cake. Sweets are often bound up in our emotional life as adults, too: they're how we reward ourselves or our children, how we celebrate holidays, birthdays, and special occasions, and how we honor guests.

In The Great American Bake Sale, more than fifty of the nation's preeminent bakers share their recipes for cookies, cakes, and other dessert favorites, and the memories of why they hold that recipe dear. These decadent treats are perfect for taking to a bake sale or just enjoying with family and friends in one's own home. From the Apple Snacking Spice Cake that Joanne Chang made for her fourth-grade teacher to show her how much she loved her to the Polvorones that were a Sunday after-church treat in Miguel Ravago's house, there are recipes-and stories-to share.

When James Beard Award-winner Greg Patent was a teenager, he won a trip to New York City to compete in the Pillsbury Bake-Off with his Cherry-Apricot Coconut Bars. Forty years later, his mother earned a place in that same competition with her Walnut Fudge Bars. World-renowned chocolatier Jacques Torres tucked a few pints of hand-picked Michigan blueberries into his luggage so he could again make Blueberry Dame Blanche-the jam-filled cookies he made when he was a child in France-when visiting his aging mother.

The Great American Bake Sale is also sweet inspiration for anyone who wants to participate in Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale, a national campaign that mobilizes people of all ages to help end childhood hunger in America by holding bake sales in their communities. Since the launch of the Great American Bake SaleĀ® in 2003, Share Our Strength-one of the nation's leading organizations working to end childhood hunger in America-has raised over $3 million and engaged more than a million people in baking, selling, or buying goods.

 A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book benefit Share Our Strength, one of the nation's leading organizations working to end childhood hunger in America.
