Food writer and recipe developer Alford joins James Beard Award winner Gunst (Soup Swap) to create a unique collection of recipes, essays, poems, and photographs. The origins of this passionately conceived book stem from being frustrated with our current political climate and using baking as a therapy of sorts; a way to calm emotions. After the 2016 presidential election, Gunst displayed her baking on Instagram with the hashtag #ragebakers. Expanding on those creations, featured recipes, all beautifully photographed, include rainbow cookies, grape and rosemary focaccia, chocolate raspberry triple-layer cake, and impeachment upside-down cake. Many recipes are ideal for beginner to intermediate bakers, with clear instructions on effectively using equipment.
VERDICT This resource will satisfy those looking for an outlet to quell their angst and bake some fantastic treats. An engaging choice for teens and up.
