Let them eat cake

Hosted by

Claire Ptak worked as a pastry chef at Chez Panisse before bringing her Northern Californian sensibility to Violet bakery in London. Staying true to simple, seasonal ingredients, she finds the perfect balance between nourishing and indulgent treats in her first cookbook, The Violet Bakery Cookbook — which we happen to know is one of Jonathan Gold's favorites. Find a recipe from the book for her rye chocolate brownies on the Good Food blog.
