Joy the Baker

Joy the BakerAre you coming to our event with Joy Wilson, author of the Joy the Baker blog and the brand-new Joy the Baker cookbook? If you don’t have it on your schedule yet and you are a human being that consumes food (which I hope you are), add it now.

I just discovered her blog – reading about the upcoming book to prepare for the event, go figure – and I think I’m in love. The food photography is ridiculously gorgeous, and I want her apartment (despite having seen mostly just glimpses of her table). Everything is bright and colorful and looks, well, delicious. Each recipe is prefaced by a quirky bit about her life, which just makes you feel like you’re getting an awesome new dish from a fun friend. You can find out more about her here, or read the Tasting Table article about her new cookbook, including a totally unfair recipe for Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes, which I now must eat for breakfast forever. Best part: she’s (semi) local. Go Los Angeles!

I can’t wait for this event.

Joy the Baker will be coming to Vroman’s on Tuesday, February 28th at 7pm. The discussion is free and open to the public; if you want to get a book signed, please purchase at least one copy from Vroman’s and save your receipt.


In case you aren’t convinced, I leave you with this picture of her Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding, which I will be eating tonight. For dinner. Because I can.
