UPDATE! WE HAVE A WINNER! LORENE VOSKINARIAN, COME ON DOWN!
My latest cookbook, Bake It Like You Mean It, is my third (not including my memoir My Life From Scratch which wasn't a cookbook but did have recipes as "plot points").
And like all the books before, I'm proud of my baby. It's also, I believe, the most representative of my life as a pastry chef. It covers the broad spectrum of my baking existence, from meringues to yeasted doughs. I approach each category as I approach my pastry life, baking it like I mean it.
|The Wall: during the course of the photo shoot for each book, Tina tapes polaroids of our finished portraits on the door of the studio, aka my living room.|
|Clockwise from the top left: The cover, the back cover, an image from the mousse section and last, the centerfold: the croissants. Tina swears my croissants are the best she's ever had. Now you too can make the best with my super duper recipe!|

Please check out her website, www.shannonreed.com. Shannon is truly a boon to a culinary field that was bereft of beautiful working togs until she came around.
|Shannon also made my chef's jacket. This isn't a part of the giveaway but I love it as much as my apron. And Tina Rupp also took this photo!|
