Book Synopsis



With great style, wit, and joy, Maira Kalman and Barbara Scott-Goodman celebrate their favorite dessert.

In Cake, renowned artist and author Maira Kalman and food writer Barbara Scott-Goodman bring us a beautifully illustrated book dedicated to their love of cakes. Filled with Kalman's inimitable illustrations and memories, from chocolate cake on a terrace in Tel Aviv as a child to a gorgeous pink cake enjoyed over Lucretius and Nietzsche in Rome, and sprinkled with seventeen mouthwatering recipes prepared by Scott-Goodman, Cake is a joyful and whimsical celebration of a timeless dessert.



Review Quotes




"This small, stunningly designed book of less than 100 pages is a work of art, and its minimal prose reads like poetry . . . The prose is accompanied by Ms. Kalman's beautifully expressive paintings--work she deems naive, cartoony and humorous, but which is also mysterious, subtle and wise. There is always cake, the eating of cake and gathering around cake. There is love and loss, heartbreak, celebration, poignant and hilarious times--always with cake. One might assume that the recipes are mere props in such a book. But Ms. Scott-Goodman is an accomplished cookbook writer, and her 17 simple, festive and pretty cakes make an elegantly curated collection of recipes that anyone might like to have in a little cookbook." -- Wall Street Journal

The joyful illustrations and homey recipes beautifully celebrate the comfort of cake." -- Publishers Weekly
