In her first cookbook, Bon Appétit and YouTube star of the show Gourmet Makes offers wisdom, problem-solving strategies, and more than 100 meticulously tested, creative, and inspiring recipes.

Claire Saffitz is a baking hero for a new generation. In Dessert Person, fans will find Claire’s signature spin on sweet and savory recipes like Babkallah (a babka-Challah mashup), Apple and Concord Grape Crumble Pie, Strawberry-Cornmeal Layer Cake, Crispy Mushroom Galette, and Malted Forever Brownies. She outlines the problems and solutions for each recipe—like what to do if your pie dough for Sour Cherry Pie cracks (patch it with dough or a quiche flour paste!)—as well as practical do’s and don’ts, skill level, prep and bake time, and foundational know-how. With Claire at your side, everyone can be a dessert person.

AN INTERNET SENSATION: Millions of fans regularly tune in to Claire’s YouTube videos to watch her on-screen frustration and pedantic testing process as she tries to crack the code to making gourmet homemade Oreos (9.4 million views) or Kit Kats (9.5 million views). Claire’s platform is growing everyday and shows no signs of slowing. Jezebel’s article “Bon Appétit’s Claire Saffitz Will Teach You How to Bake a Cake” explains the internet’s obsession: jezebel.com/bon-appetits-claire-saffitz-will-teach-you-how-to-bake-1833910181.

BON APPETIT’S BREAKOUT STAR: Claire began as a freelance test cook at Bon Appetit and quickly rose through the ranks to Senior Food Editor. Though she is no longer a Bon Appetit editor, she is key to the brand’s platform and is contracted with Bon Appetit to film digital videos and contribute to the print magazine. Her shows Gourmet Makes and Baking School are two of the brand’s most successful. Authoritative and approachable, Claire’s fans watch her videos to decompress before they go to bed!

BESPOKE PACKAGE: CLAIRE PERSONALLY CHOSE THE 8-INCH BY 11-INCH TRIM SIZE BECASUE TO HER IT RESEMBLES A BAKING SHEET PAN. With Alex Lau (Bon Appetit’s house photographer) shooting, the look is quirky-modern, with playful touches and whimsical styling. The aesthetic is uncomplicated yet aspirational and in alignment with Claire’s brand.

Claire Saffitz is the host of Bon Appétit’s Gourmet Makes and Baking School, both on YouTube and iTunes, and contributes stories and recipes to the print magazine. After graduating from Harvard University, Saffitz received a master’s degree in culinary history from McGill in Montreal and then studied pastry in Paris at École Grégoire Ferrandi. She lives in New York City.

“This is a wonderful book for experienced bakers—there are plenty of surprises and challenges—and an ideal one for beginners. Look at the Recipe Matrix, choose an easy recipe that doesn’t take much time, follow Claire’s directions, and chalk up your first win. If you’re not already a dessert person, Claire will make you one.”—Dorie Greenspan, author of Dorie’s Cookies and Everyday Dorie 

“Claire Saffitz is a skillful and imaginative baker with a knack for writing beautiful recipes. Her gorgeous book will unleash the inner dessert person in a novice and inspire those who know their way around a pastry kitchen. It certainly has a place on my shelf.”—Claudia Fleming, chef and author of The Last Course

“ I’ve always been a fan of Claire’s work at Bon Appétit, and I am most definitely a dessert person, so this book really appeals to me. Her recipes all have modern twists of flavor, but at their core they are the familiar bakes we always want to get into the kitchen for.”—Claire Ptak, Violet Cakes director
 
"Claire’s easier take on the French galette des rois will win over those who want to make one with less fuss, and have more fun doing it. If anyone can turn you into a dessert person, it’s Claire. You’ll want to make everything in this book, as I do.”—David Lebovitz, author My Paris Kitchen and Drinking French

“If you know Claire (and how could you not?), gourmet Doritos and Skittles may come to mind, but she’s got so much more up her flour-dusted sleeve. From the subtle flavors of a pear and chestnut cake to miso-spiked buttermilk biscuits, Dessert Person is Claire’s personal dissertation on baking.”—Stella Parks, author of BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts

“ As a lover of all-things-dessert, I instantly identified the same in Claire—a sister in search for creative, delicious ingredients rooted in classic baking technique. She has that rare combination of creative generosity crossed with baking-professor that the very best authors can convey in a book, and it will make this one a classic.”—Elisabeth Prueitt, founder, Tartine
 

“Dessert is last in a meal but first in many people’s hearts. It also, beneath the sweetness, requires a sophisticated mix of time management, architectural thinking, visual seduction, and unexpected restraint. As these recipes prove, Claire Saffitz has all of that, and more.”—Questlove
 
“Does any chef have a more reassuring and trustworthy voice than Claire Saffitz? Equal parts tireless, hyper-organized technician and empathic cheerleader, Claire presents one of the most convincing arguments I’ve ever read for diving into the world of baking. If anybody can fell the wall that divides home cooks and home bakers, it’s Claire, with her thoroughly modern yet classically elegant desserts.”—Natasha Pickowicz, Pastry Chef

“Exceptional…This should become a go-to reference for any home baker.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
