Ep 53: International Desserts with Cate Brubaker

November 27, 2017

Andrea is hot off another successful cookbook club meeting, and has several desserts to report on from the new Smitten Kitchen cookbook, Every Day. Meantime, Stefin is cleaning her stainless steel sink with an old-fashioned cleaning agent: Bicarb! (That's baking soda in the USA.) Both hosts debate how dangerous a bread and cake delivery service could be after Andrea tries one with delicious results. Speaking of delicious, Andrea has a new favorite birthday cake, the Fudgy Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting from, yes, Smitten Kitchen! Next, Stefin cues the violins and the hosts recount birthday treats they pined after as children (Barbie and the Matterhorn is all we'll say). And finally, Cate Brubaker, founder of International Desserts Blog, joins Stefin to talk about travel, global food trends, "freakshakes" and quark, and recreating favorites at home.

Bake along with Stefin and Andrea in their baking Facebook group, Preheated. You can find links to recipes on their baking website, www.preheatedpodcast.com. Join the fun!
