Reviews

"Life Is What You Bake It is at once deeply personal and eminently practical. Vallery weaves together evocative stories about honoring family, overcoming disappointment, and pushing through fear."-Claire Saffitz, author of Dessert Person

"Brimming with fond memories, gorgeous full-page photography, and expert tips and tricks,
Life Is What You Bake It
is all about managing the unexpected twists thrown at you-while baking or otherwise." -Michelle Baricevic, Food Network online editorial coordinator

"Lomas is an inspiration as a baker (have you seen Almost-Ate-the-Plate Carrot Cake?), a writer (headnote readers, you're in for some beautiful storytelling), but also as a human being, pursuing her passion for baking and continuing it against seemingly impossible setbacks. We're luckier for it."-Deb Perelman, author of Smitten Kitchen Every Day

"I don't know what's more inspiring, Vallery's incredible and deeply courageous story or her stunning, crave-worthy recipes. Life Is What You Bake It truly has it all: the kinds of stories that make you feel like you're hanging out with a good friend, loads of tips that will help you become a better baker, and of course, baked goods that you'll want to totally devour."-Molly Yeh, Food Network host and cookbook author

"Chef Vallery's story lets you know that if you can put your mind to it, you can achieve it. She also makes it clear that if you want delicious baked goods, you should take a page out of her book. From her simple nostalgic Strawberry Smash to her decadent bananas foster pancakes, there is a recipe in here for everyone!"-Kwame Onwuachi, author of Notes From a Young Black Chef, James Beard Rising Star Chef and judge on Top Chef

"[Vallery] will guide you with her endless charm and beautifully written recipes to bake like a champion."-Zoe Francois, author of Zoe Bakes Cakes and TV host

"Vallery Lomas brings her trademark zest and enthusiasm to American classics and offers up a chapter of easy-to-master French pastries from her life in Paris. I can't wait to bake my way through this delicious collection of recipes!"-David Lebovitz, author of Drinking French and My Paris Kitchen

"I LOVE IT! I felt immediately comforted and uplifted by Vallery's writing, which is warm, engaging, and thoughtful. There's something in the book for everybody, no matter their skill level or confidence."-Ruby Tandoh, food writer and author of Eat Up!

"While the gorgeous photography and delicious recipes immediately drew me in, Vallery's compelling journey and family history bring a depth and joy to each and every recipe."-Sarah Kieffer, author of 100 Cookies and The Vanilla Bean Blog

"The Great American Baking Show
winner Lomas debuts with an inspiring collection that combines life lessons, family lore, and behind-the-scenes peeks at the reality show world, with more than 100 indulgent recipes."-Publishers Weekly
