Cookbook of the week: The Back In The Day Bakery Cookbook
Welcome back to "Cookbook of the Week," now in its second consecutive week, in which we spotlight a new release.
It is sad and disturbing to admit this, but I very slightly cried while reading the Introduction to the Back In The Day Cookbook, the first book from Cheryl and Griffith Day, the owners of Savannah, Georgia's Back In The Day Bakery. In those three short pages, Cheryl tells the story of losing her sister, Natalie, and how the community that had formed around their bakery supported her and her husband, Griffith. Cheryl's voice, even in this short introduction, is so genuine and understated that it's impossible not to immediately connect with her. This tone carries throughout the book, which is basically made up of my daily diet: coffee cakes, cupcakes, pies, puddings, cookies, brownies and confections.
