Exciting News! Kimmy Fasani and Mimi Council from Dessert’D Organic Bake Shop have a cookbook coming out, The Mountain Baker! Pre-order now… and shipping begins October 13, 2020!

From sweet and savory to fluffy and flaky—tried-and-tested recipes made for the 21st-century outdoor adventurer.

Most recipes are developed and employed at or close to sea level, so what is a baker to do if they live 5,000 feet higher? In The Mountain Baker, longtime mountain dwellers Mimi Council and Kimmy Fasani share their recipes for successful cakes, cookies, muffins, breads, and beyond. With their firsthand experience, Council and Fasani are just the women to talk about the science behind high-altitude baking and cooking.

From hearty eats and apres snacks to decadent desserts, these recipes include conversions for sea-level kitchens, so home bakers can enjoy these treats wherever they cook: Double Black Diamond Brownies, Honey Graham Pancakes, Rosemary Parmesan Biscotti, Pizza Bread, Snow Day Cake, and more. With tips on why your alpine cakes are sinking or why your cookies are burning, this is the go-to resource to help readers fearlessly face their high-altitude kitchen or simply get in the outdoor spirit.

Mimi and Kimmy live and bake in Mammoth Lakes, California. Follow them on Instagram @mimibakescookies and @kimmyfasani.
