Why subscribe?

I’d like to welcome you to my apartment kitchen in Chicago.

I’m a professional baker and have been inspired to bake my way through the recipes of the 20th century — and, sometimes, 21st — and to write about them here. I’ll also share some of the history of the times along with my own reflections.

I promise it will be delicious.
