About the Book:
Brian Noyes, owner of rural Virginia’s celebrated Red Truck Bakery, presents house specialties in this collection of popular Southern-style treats. In 85 recipes straight from what Travel + Leisure called one of “America’s Best Small-Town Bakeries” Noyes draws inspiration from local ingredients, weaving them into breakfasts, sweet/savory pies, cookies, cakes, breads, and condiments. He shares secrets of biscuit-making (“the foundation of Southern baking”) and includes the recipe for his sweet potato pecan pie with bourbon, which President Obama praised on his Facebook page and The White House website.
Throughout this inspirational book, Noyes recalls his journey from a small-town baker to national attention via coverage in Esquire, Southern Living, and Oprah’s O Magazine. Noyes’s enthusiasm for baking is infectious, and this volume will prove to be one that bakers turn to time and again.
