Hip. Cool. Fashion-forward. These aren t adjectives you d ordinarily think of applying to baked goods.Think again. Not every baker wants to re-create Grandma s pound cake or cherry pie. Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito certainly didn t, when they left their advertising careers behind, pooled their life savings, and opened their dream bakery, Baked, in Brooklyn, New York, a few years back. The visions that danced in their heads were of other, brand-new kinds of confections . . .Things like a Malt Ball Cake with Milk Chocolate Frosting, which captures the flavor of their favorite Whoppers candies (and ups the ante with a malted milk ball garnish). Things like spicy Chipotle Cheddar Biscuits that really wake up your taste buds at breakfast time. Things like a Sweet and Salty Cake created expressly for adults who are as salt-craving ?as they are sweet-toothed.Which is not to say that Lewis and Poliafito sidestep tradition absolutely. Their Chocolate Pie (whose filling uses Ovaltine) pays loving homage to the classic roadside-diner dessert. Their Baked Brownies will wow even the most discriminating brownie connoisseur. And their Chocolate Chip Cookies? Words cannot describe. Whether trendsetting or tried-and-true, every idea in this book is freshly Baked

Baked: New Frontiers in Baking is both the title of Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito's debut cookbook and the name of their bakery in Red Hook, one of the new frontiers of Brooklyn. These guys are super-inventive, with a penchant for thinking outside the box: root beer stars in Root Beer Bundt Cake with Root Beer Fudge Frosting; there's a cup of malted milk powder in Milk Chocolate Malt Ball Cake; in Sweet and Salty Cake, their signature creation, whipped caramel ganache frosting tops salted caramel-infused layers. You'll also find spicy Chipotle Cheddar Biscuits, a grown-up, decadent take on Rice Krispies Treats and Grasshopper Cake among their greatest hits. Thank goodness you can't gain weight looking at picturesthey're so tempting, you'll want to gobble up the pages.
