Good Morning! Here is my latest cookbook for the lovely folks at Egg & Dart Press. I met author Mani Niall of Sweet Bar Bakery at a great dinner party at Creative Director Leslie Jonath’s house, along with Pam Senk Falk, who is the at the helm of Egg & Dart Press. Leslie knows how to throw a great party. Many thanks to the wonderful team- food stylist Karen Shinto + Ethel Brennan on props. The recipes are great- the best donuts I’ve ever had + great gluten-free and vegan options. 

Williams-Sonoma Dessert of the Day- a beautiful advance copy of my upcoming book for Wiliams-Sonoma with Weldon Owen Publishing showed up on set today. We’re busy working on volume 6 in this series, and by now we’re like family. Each book takes 2 weeks to shoot, and we have the best time on set.  Many thanks to the all star team at Weldon Owen + food stylist Robyn Valarik and Leigh Noe on props.

The best compliment I’ve received in a while! William Grimes of the New York Times declares ‘Vintage Cakes’ the sexiest book of the year: ”If the recipe names in Richardson’s book — like “maple pecan chiffon cake with brown butter icing” — seem seductive, the photographs are downright pornographic. Forget “Fifty Shades of Grey.” This is the year’s sexiest book.” Thank you Mr. Grimes!

I just wrapped shooting the 4th book in this awesome Williams-Sonoma series, and just in time for fall weather, the third installment is out! Many thanks to the dream team involved for their great company, delicious food and abundant talent:  Robyn Valarik food styling, Emma Boys and Amy Marr at Weldon Owen Publishing, and Leigh Noe on props. Italian braised short ribs… Baked kale and eggs… Calamari Fra Diavolo… So good. 

Vintage Cakes for Ten Speed Press!  I loved collaborating with Julie Richardson of Baker and Spice on this book- she and her recipes are wonderful. Check out her bakery next time you’re in Portland- if only she would open an outpost in my SF neighborhood! Of course this was a great gig because we ate cake everyday, but I especially loved working with this fantastic team- a big thanks to Robyn Valarik for food styling, Ethel Brennan on props and art director Toni Tajima.
