    Announcing the October 5

    Bakers Dozen Special Interest Group Gathering

    to Discuss “Cook’s Illustrated” Magazine

    Are you an avid reader of this bi-monthly magazine? Perhaps you’re a subscriber. Or maybe you occasionally pick up an issue when the spirit—or the cover—moves you.

    Because Bakers Dozen can’t consistently meet and share ideas together in person, we've created a Special Interest Group designed to support the continuing education of our members who read and bake from “Cook’s Illustrated” magazine.

    If possible before we meet, please try to bake at least one recipe from the current issue so we can compare notes. But it’s absolutely not required that you bake any of these recipes in order to participate in the Zoom gathering—we end up talking about myriad other baking conundrums and challenges as well as comparing brands of ingredients, etc.

    The September/October issue features the following baking-related recipes which you might like to prepare before we meet:

    P. 20 Moist, Tender, Baked-to-Order Muffins
    p. 22 Banoffee Pie
    p. 31 Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
    p. 28-29 Homemade Pumpkin Spice
    Apple Syrup
    Vanilla Extract

    Bakers Dozen Board members, Rose Gillen, professional baker, and Jeanne Sauvage, gluten-free baking cookbook author, will serve as our moderators.

    This program is open to members only. RSVP by FridaySeptember 29. The Zoom link for the meeting will be sent to all who register. Please note this program will not be recorded.
