I’m not sure if it’s the sheer joy they get to be around all day (Sugar! Icing! Sprinkles!), but bakers are some of happiest and kindest people I know. And two of my all-time favorite bakers, and people, are Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito of Baked. This talented twosome just released a fantastic new baking book, Baked Occasions, and are about to open up a new bakery in Manhattan any day now, too. Their current schedules make even the busiest person seem like they’re in slow-motion, so I’m especially grateful that they were willing to sit down with us last week (in the corner banquette of their beautiful new location!) to answer a few fun questions. Tomorrow we’ll be sharing a recipe from Baked Occasions, so stay tuned for meringues you will not want to miss. Click here to check out more of Baked’s delicious work online.
