Alisa Huntsman is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and the pastry chef at the Loveless Cafe. Since she arrived at the restaurant in 2005, Alisa has created a dessert menu that now rivals the Loveless's famous biscuits in popularity. An avid gardener, beekeeper, and baker, Alisa lives in Nashville with her husband and two daughters. She is also the author of Sky High: Irresistible Triple-Layer Cakes.
"Like learning to bake with your great grandmother, Huntsman guides
readers step-by-step through some of the most treasured dessert
recipes of the South. The book is clean and unfussy, and the
author's recipes can provide absolutely lip-smacking results. . . .
Not only are the recipes mouthwatering, they usher in the warm
sentimental goodness that can only result from home-baked joy."
"Although your mama may never have baked a Double Coconut Cream
Pie, Blueberry Skillet Cobbler or Lady Lemon Squares, the Loveless
legacy is now yours."
