Stylish New York City baker Sarah Magid offers 60 organic cake, cookie, and dessert recipes that are as exquisite to look at as they are healthful and delicious. In Organic and Chic, custom cake baker Sarah Magid uses her background in jewelry and shoe design to create vibrant, highly original, and delicious desserts. This gorgeous full-color cookbook features 60 recipes, from modern floral cakes and cupcakes to rustic farmer’s market sweets made with seasonal fruits. In a more modern twist, Magid transforms classic American treats such as Thin Mints and Oreos into elegant confections made with organic ingredients, so you know what you--and your kids--are biting into are just as healthful as they are fun to eat.
Along the way Magid encourages readers to develop their own baking styles. And whether they need to whip up a simple recipe for a last-minute dinner party or knock their friends’ and family’s socks off with more elaborate recipes, organic food lovers are sure to relish this book. Innovative and bold cake-decorating techniques include bright, eye-popping flowers, hand-sculpted leaves, and metallic-painted brushstrokes.
Farm-fresh and organic foods continue to be more and more accessible, and the market for them is growing quickly. The public is increasingly realizing that ingredients without hormones, artificial additives, or chemicals just taste so much better. Using seasonal fruit gives a new depth of flavor to the most simple pie or ice cream. In this sense, Organic and Chic is as much an expression of fashion, style, and taste as it is of living well and protecting the environment.
