above image from Better Baking by Genevieve Ko I am desperately trying to “Marie Kondo” my life right now, because I don’t really have a choice. My apartment is tiny by national standards and average by New York City standards and I am running out of room. Precious square feet are being eaten alive by big, […]

Baked is Opening in Japan

August 9, 2016 | By matt | 0 Comments

I suppose, in the end, it was always about Japan. It had to be. It wasn’t obvious, of course. This is the kind of thing that sneaks up on you. This is the kind of thing that rattles around your subconscious—a slight pinging of the brain. Like sonar. Then it surfaces, seeking oxygen, and unexpectedly—12-plus […]


Sourdough and Wood Fired Outdoor Oven: My Happy Place

May 26, 2016 | By matt | 0 Comments

Many of you already know that I am slightly (okay, more than slightly) obsessed with bread.

March 30, 2016 | By matt | 0 Comments

I have been in New York City for a very long time. Very long. And it will always be, in some sense, my home. But, because I am human and because New York is trying and filthy and expensive and aggravating in ways that only New York City can be, I slip into Didion daydreams. […]

Kim Boyce’s Chocolate Chip Cookie is a workhorse. (And her book is amazing). It has been around awhile and it is simple and no fuss. No, you do not have to let it age in the refrigerator for 3 days to develop flavor as the flavor is provided by the inclusion of 3 cups of whole wheat flour […]

Twelve Days of Holiday Cookies: Icelandic Kleinur

The Nordic countries share many food traditions, none more delicious than klejner, a deep-fried pastry that dates back to the middle ages and is a common Christmas treat across Scandinavia and Northern Germany. Some differences persist. Danish klejner are typically unleavened. The same is true for Swedish klenäter. In Denmark, we also have Norwegian klejner, which are […]

December 14, 2015 | By johannah | 0 Comments

Entering the darkest two weeks of the year – when our days here in Copenhagen shrink to a mere seven hours and oftentimes seem much shorter – keeping the winter blues at bay can sometimes feel like a losing game. A friend who comes from the furthest reaches of northern Norway, where it stays dark […]
