The Bookshelf: Hedy Goldsmith's "Baking Out Loud"

James Beard Award winner Hedy Goldsmith


Hedy Goldsmith, the James Beard Award–nominated pastry chef at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink in Miami, is known for her sophisticated and playful riffs on classic childhood treats, like the delicious peanut butter sandwich cookies on the cover of her new book, Baking Out Loud.

Recipe: Cornmeal-Crusted Oysters with Sriracha Rémoulade


Your football team—fantasy or real—may fall short year after year, but you can always count on an over-the-top spread on the day of the Super Bowl.

This year's Super Bowl takes place in New Orleans, so we're planning on serving a few Gulf-inspired offerings, like these bite-sized oyster nuggets from Karey Johnson of Glow, located a leap down the coast in Rockport, Texas. Johnson coats her oysters in chili and garlic powder–seasoned cornmeal, fries them until crispy, and serves them with lime wedges and a garlicky, sriracha-spiked rémoulade.
