“The thing that I love about Cake & Loaf is not just that it is a cookbook based on the real-world bakery experience of Nickey and Josie, but that it is about more than just baking. It is a book that comes at the subject of baking not just by way of flour, butter, sugar, and eggs, but also by sustainability and responsibility.
