CakeLove How to Bake Cakes from Scratch Warren Brown has a bachelor’s degree from Brown University, and a J.D. and master’s degree from The George Washington University. After establishing a career in health education and law, he realized his calling was baking. In 2002 he opened his bakery, CakeLove, and LoveCafe followed in 2003. He lives in Washington, D.C. Warren Brown wants you to bake your cake and eat it too. And he wants you to conquer your fear of baking cakes and learn to love every step of cake baking including, of course, the step in which you present your made-from-scratch masterpiece to bedazzled, hungry-eyed family and friends.

Every page of CakeLove communicates that satisfaction, as well as Brown’s can-do approach to the art of baking. As he asserts, baking cakes isn’t a cakewalk, but it’s not rocket science, either and getting it right isn’t nearly as hard as you think. Warren Brown provides all the basics on ingredients, equipment, and techniques, as well as recipes for more than 50 cakes that range from the classic (Chocolate Butter Cake) to the adventurous (Sassy, a pound cake made with mango puree and cayenne pepper). The informative step-by-step shots make you want to run to the kitchen and start baking, and the scrumptious color photos of completed cakes look good enough to sink your teeth into. For Brown, love and baking are inseparable!

The Best of American Beer and Food: Pairing & Cooking with Craft Beer

In The Best of American Beer and Food Lucy Saunders covers both pairing food and beer and cooking with beer. She begins by exploring the art of pairing flavorful beers with specific foods, considering today’s wide range of beer styles and the foods and flavors that they compliment from salad through dessert. She then turns to recipes that incorporate beer, using the diverse tastes available from today’s ales and lagers as flavor components.

LUCY SAUNDERS has chronicled the microbrewery movement since 1987, for such publications as Restaurants & Institutions, The Chicago Tribune, Market Watch, and more. A syndicated columnist (The Beer & Food Companion), and food editor of All About Beer, Saunders has also apprenticed in restaurants specializing in cuisine a la biere in the U.K. and Belgium. She has conducted beer tastings for cooking schools, food writers and magazine editors, and organizations such as the International Association of Culinary Professionals. Her cookbook, Cooking With Beer, was published by Time Life in 1996.

Up Close and Personal with Ania Catalano…

Do you have any unusual or special family traditions?
Like a lot of families, Christmas Eve is a time for a special celebration among our family and friends. We have an all-seafood menu, which includes lots of traditional Polish recipes I grew up with: herring with sour cream and onions, perogi filled with farmers cheese and potatoes, and a meatless version of bigos that’s made with sauerkraut, wild mushrooms and vegetables. My husband is Italian, so we have a mix of two culinary cultures and even more seafood dishes! The feast continues on Christmas Day. The highlight, as far as I’m concerned, is babka – a rich, yeasty sweatbread filled with raisins, cheese or poppyseeds and topped with a honey rum glaze. My mom made the best babka in the world!

How did you learn to cook?
My Polish mother was an amazing cook and I spent many years in the kitchen with her. In fact, when I owned Sprouts, we spent many more years together in my kitchens! Of course, she never had to measure anything and all her recipes were committed to memory, so my attempts to replicate her dishes never come out quite the same. She loved to experiment and try new things maybe that’s where I get my sense of adventure.

What’s been sitting in the back of your fridge for more than a year?
Let me think about what I want to own up to . . . there are a few things! Probably Melinda’s Triple XXX Hot Sauce and barley miso have been there the longest.

How do you cheer yourself up when you’re feeling down?
For me, nothing beats a spinning class at the gym! An hour of intense, kick-butt workout leaves me sweaty, happy and pumping with positive endorphins. If that doesn’t cure my blues, a glass of good red wine and a plate of cheese usually does the trick!
