Rosie Daykin’s new cookbook, Butter Baked Goods, offers treat lovers 100 sweet ways to say yum. (SNEAK PEEK)
NEW NOW NEXT | It maybe be a little early to be thinking about what to get your foodie friends for Christmas, but I’m pretty sure mine will be receiving copies of Rosie Daykin’s Butter Baked Goods: Nostalgic Recipes from a Little Neighborhood Bakery. Not that I’ve thumbed through an actual copy of the cookbook yet—it won’t be available to purchase until mid October. What I have had is a sneak peek at a few of the pages, and I can tell you that they’re every bit as visually enticing as everything else this talented Vancouver interior designer/ successful baker turns her hand to.
Daykin opened her first bakery on Dunbar Street in Vancouver in 2007. One year ago this month she expanded her empire to include a second and larger location on Mackenzie Street. The décor in both shops is a dainty mix of Laudrée (ish) green and cabbage roses, with pretty cake plates piled high with delicious baked goodies of all sorts.
Recipes for some of these goodies are featured in her cookbook, including one for her legendary handmade marshmallows, which are sold in high-end shops and stores all around North America—and at Whole Foods closer to home.
Pre-order Rosie Daykin’s Butter Baked Goods: Nostalgic Recipes from a Little Neighborhood Bakery, at Chapters/Indigo books. Have the book sent directly to the Chapters nearest you to avoid all shipping charges.
