Spring Quarter 2019 Baking/Dessert Cookbook of the Month VOTING

Caitlin McGrath | Apr 1, 201912:13 PM     9

Welcome to the voting round for our Spring 2019 Baking/Dessert COTM. We will bake from the winning book(s) during the months of April through June 2019.

Our top two nominations offer very distinct choices, with a third-time contender focused on sweet and savory baking spiked with spices vying with a prolific author’s plethora of dessert recipes, baked and otherwise.

“Chetna Makan is known for her unique recipes, which introduce colorful spices, aromatic herbs and other Indian ingredients into traditional Western baked favorites. Whether it's a sponge cake with a cardamom and coffee filling; puff pastry bites filled with fenugreek paneer; a swirly bread rolled with citrusy coriander, mint and green mango chutney; or a steamed strawberry pudding flavoured with cinnamon, Chetna's Indian influences will transform your baking from the familiar to the exotic, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Discover rare but precious traditional bakes from India, as well as new spice-infused recipes. Delve into the history of Indian herbs and spices and learn how to match foods and flavors.”

An American expat in Paris, Lebovitz is chiefly. Known for his several books focusing on baking and dessert, including a distillation of his favorites in Ready for Dessert, as well as his ice cream book The Perfect Scoop, two memoirs of his life in Paris, and his blog, at which you can find out mare about his books.
