At Harper Macaw Chocolate Store in The Wharf: Stella Parks — BraveTart

Upcoming Event
Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 3:00 pm

This event will take place at Harper Macaw Chocolate Boutique, 835 Water St SW, located opposite P&P at The Wharf on the other side of District Square. A signing at the bookstore, Politics and Prose at The Wharf, will follow immediately after the event. 

Stella Parks, award-winning pastry chef and writer for Serious Eats, visits the Harper Macaw Chocolate Boutique at The Wharf to share BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts.

Her new cookbook contains 100-plus recipes for your favorite sweet treats, from Devil’s Food Layer Cake to a classic Cherry Pie. Parks will guide you in recreating beloved brands like Fig Newtons, Animal Crackers, and Fudge Strips and in remixing recipes so you can enjoy gluten-free and vegan variations. Moreover, BraveTart dives into the history of the desserts: the hidden meaning of the word “oreo,” the weirdly vindictive origin of graham crackers, and the marketing-driven machinations that led to key lime pie. With BraveTart, Parks provides a must-read for anyone who loves childhood desserts.
