KD: I think that my biggest goal in writing the book was to make people feel more comfortable with baking at home. I really didn’t want it to be a coffee table book or a book you put on your shelf and you never touch. I wanted it to be something that gets dirty and you use it all the time. And I wanted to make baking less intimidating so I think taking a recipe and giving it flexibility becomes more approachable.
KD: My biggest piece of advice would be to enjoy the process of baking-take your time, read the recipe, make sure you have everything you need and its an enjoyable process. It’s so hands on and it’s so satisfying. Everyday I come to work and it’s always something new. I can make the same things over and over again everyday and its just finding new nuances in it.
