Food, Fitness & Fun: Virtual Book Chat with Cookbook Author Dorie Greenspan

Dorie Greenspan's name is synonymous with baking. The renowned author of thirteen cookbooks and winner of five James Beard and two IACP awards offers up a collection that celebrates the sweet, the savory, and the simple. Every recipe is signature Dorie: Easy and accessible, with ingredients available at the corner grocery store. Beginners can ace every technique in this book. Are there surprises? But of course! Berry biscuits. Foot-long cheese sticks made with cream puff dough, gouda, and cumin. An apple pie with browned butter that tastes like warm mulled cider. A fast s'mores ice cream cake with velvety chocolate sauce, salty peanuts, and toasted marshmallows. This collection of simple yet sophisticated baking includes chapters like Breakfast Stuff * Cakes * Cookies * Pies and Tarts * Salty Bakes. Each one features "Sweethearts," Dorie's all-time favorite recipes that lend themselves to being remade, refashioned, and riffed on, like the chocolate chip cookies, meringue, and brioche.

This year marks New York Times bestselling author Dorie Greenspan’s thirtieth anniversary as a cookbook author. She has won five James Beard Awards for her cookbooks and journalism and was inducted into the Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America. A columnist for the New York Times Magazine, Dorie was recently awarded an Order of Agricultural Merit from the French government for her outstanding writing on the foods of that country. She lives in New York City, Westbrook, Connecticut, and Paris.

Dorie will be in conversation with Charlotte Druckman, a journalist and food writer whose work has appeared in more places than she has been able to keep track of, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Food and Wine and Bon Appetit
