We are so pleased to welcome Chef and Cookbook Author Erin Jeanne McDowell to our virtual stage! Erin will demonstrate how to make one of her favorite recipes and then will have some time for a Q&A.
About Erin Jeanne McDowell:
Erin fell deeply in love with baking at 14 years old, and has never looked back!!!
Her baking journey started in her mom and grandma’s kitchens, then led her to her first bakery job at 16. Then, she headed off to study at The Culinary Institute of America. Her goal was to learn and devour as much as she could, and then share it - however possible - all in the hopes that she could help other people discover that they love baking, too.
Today, Erin combines professional training + a deep love of teaching to develop recipes, write cookbooks, and make instructional baking videos. She is ringing in more than ten years working in both digital and print food media. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Food Network, Bon Appetit, Food52, and more. Her first book, The Fearless Baker (2017) was named one of the Best Baking Books of the year by the New York Times. Her second, The Book on Pie, (2020) is a New York Times Bestseller. Erin's latest, Savory Baking (2022) is about baking beyond sweets - for breakfast, dinner, and everything in between!
She also hosts the award-winning series Bake it Up a Notch on Food52, where she shares deep-dives into baking methods and troubleshoots common mistakes.
