Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, the fabulous baker boys of BAKED, stop by the studio to sate THE FOOD SEEN’s sweet teeth, bearing their best brownies (which are some of Oprah’s Favorite Things)! They tell the tale that you can positively have one’s cake and eat it too, leaving former lives in the ad world to working nights in cafes and take pastry classes, starting from scratch with the notion to get grandma out of the kitchen, and bring the cool back into baking. Matt and Renato have also authored two toothsome cookbooks that are must haves for anyone craving classic American desserts made alive and anew (Baked: New Frontiers in Baking and Baked Explorations: Classic American Desserts Reinvented).
