JUDITH FERTIG INTRODUCES NEW NOVEL

THURSDAY, JUNE 4; 7 PM

JUDITH FERTIG, well known as an award-winning cookbook author, will debut her first novel, The Cake Therapist. It combines her expertise in baking with her passion for storytelling. This results in a tale that shows just where food and healing intersect. We meet Claire "Neely" O'Neill, an extraordinarily talented pastry chef, but her life outside her kitchen is falling apart. She moves from New York City to her small Midwestern hometown and opens a bakery. She soon discovers that she not only has a talent for recognizing elusive flavors, but now she can "taste" feelings. She knows what her customers are feeling and is able to bake confections that truly help them deal with their problems. And in doing so, heals herself. BERKLEY TRADE PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Ashley's Bake Shop will provide luscious treats for our guests!

Judith Fertig's newest cookbooks are Bake Happy and BBQ Bistro.
