What began as a popular blog by the Canadian author, this cookbook embraces the not-so-tidy yet still delicious affair baking can be. Recipes like walnut frangipane and raspberry rhubarb galette drop the staged perfectionism associated with baking and replace it with simple fun.
The Messy Baker celebrates baking as it happens in the real world—sweet, messy, fun, not always gorgeous, but a way to show love Which doesn’t make it any less delicious. . . .Christie’s warm, irreverent voice brings the fun back into baking at a time when home cooks—pulled from the pillar to post by jobs and errands—need to have fun.
