A Sweet give-a-way

My sister-in-law Emily Luchetti is the Executive Pastry Chef at two restaurants in San Franciso. One is Farallon Restaurant. The other one is Waterbarsf. She is also the Author of several dessert books, in addition to being a James Beard Award Recepient - quite a list of accomplishments!

Emily has a new book out entitled "The Fearless Baker" - a book that is very user friendly. The recipes are easy to follow, and the results are utterly delicious. I know this because Allen and I tested nineteen of them. We gave the goodies away to family and neighbors who praised the results. : )

So........if you would like a copy of Emily's book, let me know by leaving your name and comment. All entries should be in by May 19th 12:00am, and Allen (Emily's twin brother) will perform his magic and select a winner on May 20th. Good Luck to all!


  1. I wish I was your neighbor to receive such yummy treats! Sounds like your hubby sister is successful at whatever she touches. I hope her book does well! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. This book would inspire me to be a better neighbor and baker.
    Love to win a copy of this book. I rather like knowing that it is a step closer to being fearless!

  3. I'd love a copy of it...I love baking and cooking, have a small collection of books that am planning to in Australia though, not sure if it's ok for posting etc

  4. Of course I'd love a copy!!! And how strong you are to have given the goodies away!!!

  5. Yes please!! and have a wonderful weekend!

  7. made me SMILE to see you at Farmhouse Kitchen today, my friend


  8. I love to cook, but am not much of a baker, so possession of a brilliant work like this would surely help to allay my fears (okay, expectations) of diaster when trying to turn flour, yeast, and other ingredients into something edible. Pick me!!

  9. I love visiting her blog AND I love her ice cream book!!! The other day as I was looking through her ice cream (the 100th x) I thought how lucky to have a pastry in the family!! xo

  10. Yes, please! And I think her book would make a terrific gift for a baker too. Thanks for your sweet comment.

  11. How wonderful to have a chef/baker/writer in the family! The book looks wonderful! I hope I'm not to would be a treasure!
