Big Deals: Babycakes Part Two; Eleven Madison Park
Our books editor Helen might not have liked Babycakes (Amazon), the cookbook from New York's eponymous vegan bakery, all that much, but that doesn't seem to matter to them: per Publisher's Marketplace, the team behind the first book has signed a deal to write a followup for publisher Clarkson Potter. Babycakes Covers the Classics ... and Other Food Fantasies will expand on the original's cupcake-and-cookie focus to include dairy- and egg-free takes on rice krispie treats, doughnuts, and other sweet things.
Also in upcoming books, as Grub Street pointed out, Chef Daniel Humm of New York's recently four-starred Eleven Madison Park is writing something up. Pub Marketplace describes it as "seasonally arranged recipes and behind-the-scenes vignettes highlighting the philosophy of continual reinvention" that EMP embodies. Whatever that means.
