For the past twelve years on JoyTheBaker.com, I’ve created recipes that are classic and approachable with a little twist that usually involves bacon or browned butter. I want my recipes to be an irresistible invitation and a pep talk, because baking can be intimidating at first, but once you work through the basics, there will be endless delicious things coming out of your oven. In 2017, I launched The Bakehouse, a baking school, out of my home studio in New Orleans. I gather a dozen students at a time around my large marble island and teach pie baking, biscuit making, and cake decorating. It’s the most rewarding way I’ve found to take my work offline and to make new friends. Now you, too, can experience The Bakehouse warmth and camaraderie, just as my students do! I couldn’t be more excited about this premiere issue of Joy the Baker. Friends, it’s going to be a delicious holiday! I see a pot of Chicken & Andouille Gumbo (page 10) simmering on your stove, and the Gingerbread Swirl Bundt Cake (page 76) coming out of your oven. Thanksgiving may be a bit untraditional this year, but there’s still room for Turkey Potpie (page 52) and pumpkin everything. I hope you feel inspired to bake up some holiday magic. I created these recipes with your comfort and joy in mind.
