You can catch these two authors, Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito on a
THROWDOWN show with Bobby Flay,
today, 8/18, at 9 p.m. on Food Network.
Tired of the rat race, friends and co-workers Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito left the grind of jobs in advertising to follow their tasty dream of opening a bakery. This led to the creation of their Elvis-inspired banana cream pie that has fans flocking from all over to their Brooklyn bakery to get a taste of this dessert that is fit for a king! Can Matt and Renato cream the competition with their heavenly dessert, or will Bobby's take on the classic pie reign supreme? The judges will likely scratch their heads until they declare a winner at this Banana Cream Pie Throwdown!

Now…onto bigger things in my life. I’ll be starting a pastry course at the French Culinary Institute in New York City in September.
Look forward to meeting Jacques Torres, Dean of Pastry Arts and meeting other like-minded folks. I’m so thrilled and excited to learn baking from the pros. Wish me luck! I hope to post about my FCI experiences and share new recipes and techniques with you.
Peace in baking,
Baking is my Zen…sweet nibbles for the soul
