Beach Town Baking

About the Book

Lei wanted to offer her simple yet creative recipes for wonderful baked goods to anyone yearning to get away to the beach. Lei conceived Beach Town Baking as a way to provide every baker an opportunity to escape to a beautiful place by the beach just by opening her forthcoming book.

Inspired by her beach town location and her love of that lifestyle, Chef Lei creates high-quality, made-from-scratch desserts that transport her readers to islands and beaches they’ve always hoped to visit. Get ready to hit the beach through recipes like Cocoa Island, Red Velvet Riviera, Piña Colada Highway, Windswept Cherry Pie and the Malibu Shimmer ice cream sandwich. Her recipes are designed to take anyone to any number of wonderful places, turning the task of baking into a virtual journey to a beachside paradise, filled with the sounds and aromas of a place where one can just get away from it all. Take Bali for example, the inspiration for her Modern Snickerdoodle recipe. The double dose of Indonesian cinnamon in this cookie releases an intoxicating aroma that rivals the experience of an authentic Bali beachside cinnamon scrub. No passport required; just some baking tools, a vivid imagination and a fun attitude.
