Looking Forward: Fall 2016 Cookbooks Recommendations

September 13, 2016 | By matt | 0 Comments

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 Tribeca : A Quick Update

August 25, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

Hope everyone is enjoying this last bit of summer – this perfect NYC summer. Drink it in and drink it up. Fall (and a new Baked) await you. We are getting a bunch of questions about the new bakery – probably because a few fall previews are starting to publish. So, if I may, just […]

How To Make Welsh Rarebit (and Why You Should)

February 4, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

Toast is having a moment. It is at once being celebrated, and…oddly…heavily debated. If you are interested in reading more about the toast hubbub happening in San Francisco, you should read this and this now. Truth be told, I am kind of surprised and saddened (and outraged) that toast is being made a scapegoat – […]

How to Make Cavatelli – Grandma Boreali Style

September 11, 2013 | By matt | 0 Comments

My grandmother, Grandma Boreali, really knew her way around a good cavatelli. She made them for me (with an assist from my wonderful Aunt Juju), like clockwork, anytime and every time I managed to escape for a “Grandma visit” upstate. By the by, Grandma also always made this addictive beast of a cheesecake below (recipe is […]

Herby Nutmeg Popovers!

December 7, 2012 | By amy | 0 Comments

Popovers.  They seem so fussy.  So messy, so temperamental.  You think, ughk, sure that eggy center and crisp outer layer are good but are they worth putting myself through total agony?  Not to mention the fact that you’re even supposed to have a special pan to make them!? Let me fill you in on a […]

Dare I say it?  Thanksgiving is t-minus 2 days away…oh no, did you just start sweating?  Relax!  Everything’s going to be fiiiine – just over pour and over feed and everyone is sure to have a fabulous holiday.  And maybe make these biscuits.  No, definitely make these biscuits.  They’re simple and scrumptious.   Heck, serve them alongside […]

Onion Pull-Apart Rolls, Of Course

November 14, 2012 | By amy | 0 Comments

Next week the holiday season officially begins.  And what better way to kick it all off than with a meal of epic proportions? Chances are you already have your Thanksgiving menu pretty planned out (or you’re more of a last minute kind of cook and that’s totally acceptable too) but either way I think you’ll […]

And just who says cornbread can’t be classy?  Adorned with rosemary sprigs and coarse sea salt this is a dressed up version of the classic we’ve all come to know and love.  And check out these adorable little loaves!  They’re fabulously moist and downright heavenly whether paired with a heaping bowl of hearty stew or […]

Blue Cheese and Chive Gougères

October 16, 2012 | By amy | 0 Comments

Gougères.  Pronounced goo/zheres.  Does that clear things up for you?  It’s French for deliciously puffy cheese balls. These little puffs are the perfect pass around for your next cocktail party or heck, bake up a batch for an evening on the couch watching your favorite flick.  They’re extremely pop-able.  The tangy blue cheese and mild […]

Is that a mushroom in my cookie?

October 9, 2012 | By amy | 0 Comments

I know what you’re thinking…mushrooms!? In a cookie? Get out! Let me explain.  I’m not suggesting you go out and purchase a crate of portabellas and throw them into cookie batter all willy nilly.  I’m talking about a certain kind of mushroom: the candy cap.  Grown in the Pacific Northwest these beauties once dried, carry […]
