Claire Saffitz Shares Stories From DESSERT PERSON via Zoom (10/20)
Claire Saffitz, author of DESSERT PERSON (Clarkson Potter), will be in conversation with Christina Chaey from Bon Appétit at a virtual event hosted by Books Are Magic via Zoom on Tuesday, October 20 at 7:00 pm (ET).
Claire Saffitz is a baking hero for a new generation. In DESSERT PERSON, fans will find Claire’s signature spin on sweet and savory recipes like Babkallah (a babka-Challah mashup), Apple and Concord Grape Crumble Pie, Strawberry-Cornmeal Layer Cake, Crispy Mushroom Galette, and Malted Forever Brownies. She outlines the problems and solutions for each recipe—like what to do if your pie dough for Sour Cherry Pie cracks (patch it with dough or a quiche flour paste!)—as well as practical do’s and don’ts, skill level, prep and bake time, step-by-step photography, and foundational know-how. With her trademark warmth and superpower ability to explain anything baking related, Claire is ready to make everyone a dessert person.
Claire Saffitz is the host of Bon Appétit‘s Gourmet Makes and Baking School, both on YouTube and iTunes, and contributes stories and recipes to the print magazine. After graduating from Harvard University, Saffitz received a master’s degree in culinary history from McGill in Montreal and then studied pastry in Paris at École Grégoire Ferrandi. She lives in New York City.
