I'm Gesine. I bake. I eat. I think about what I'm going to bake while I'm eating the thing I just baked. I teach baking. I have a baking school called Sugar Glider Kitchen where you can come learn all about baking and pick my sweet brain. Go HERE to check out our class schedule.
I write books about baking (to see them, click HERE), I teach baking at King Arthur Flour & Stonewall Kitchen from time to time and sometimes I'm on t.v. talking about baking. I pretty much nudge the people at The Today Show and The Talk on a regular basis and say, "Hey. Have me on. I made a bunch of treats and I'm trucking them into your studio to talk about how great all this baking is."
|That's right. Cooking Channel flew me to Colorado to eat an ice cream cake.|
I have a gig on the Cooking Channel on a show called Unique Sweets. Guess what? I don't bake for them. You know why? Because they send me around the country to eat sweets instead and my job is to talk about what I just ate.
|Getting ready to teach the folks at Better Homes and Gardens headquarters a thing or two about sugar!|
I'm also a regular contributor to Better Homes and Gardens. I team up with their fabulous food editor, Nancy, and together we concoct dessert features. We spend weeks, nay months, dreaming up sweet zaniness. I can't make this stuff up, sweet people. My job is to dream up sweets. Pinch me.
|You want strudel? I'll pull you some strudel dough. No problem.|
I'm a guest food editor at Food & Wine. Guess what I do for them? Yup. I dream up desserts to accompany the season.
I'm a guest instructor at King Arthur Flour, spreading the sweet word to all manner of bakers. What a life!
I used to have a pastry shop but that ended up getting in the way of my baking. All that business was cramping my relationship with butter and sugar.
And this blog, this is where I vent my baking spleen. Sometimes I'll share a recipe that revolves around cooking but mainly, it's all about the bake.
Thanks for visiting me, sweet people. I hope you enjoy the goodies.
