Author Samantha Seneviratne believes that every baking project begins with a spark - a desire, a craving, a memory, or a feeling - and through baking, that spark is made real. Inspired by the gumption and charm of the classic, bestselling cookbook The Joy of Cooking, her cookbook focuses on the joys that make up everyday life, while providing recipes paired with touching, humorous, and thoughtful essays and beautiful photos throughout. A Brooklynite, Samantha is the author of The New Sugar and Spice, nominated for a 2016 James Beard Award, and Gluten-Free for Good. A frequent contributor to the New York Times and Food52, her blog Love, Cake was a finalist at the 2015 Saveur Awards.
"Sam's generously personal stories and the collection of recipes she braids into them encourage us to bake, to pay attention as we stir and knead, and to reap each of the many pleasures she describes," writes Dorie Greenspan, award-winninng author of Everyday Dorie and Dorie's Cookies.
