Since its opening in 1996, Magnolia Bakery's fan base and popularity have only grown over the years, transforming it from a beloved destination into a New York City landmark. This favourite bakery has not only expanded to four more locations in the city but has also opened up stories in Chicago, Los Angeles, the Middle East, and Tokyo. At Home with Magnolia, now in paperback for the first time, is the only cookbook from the bakery's founder Allysa Torey to include savoury dishes. The amazing recipes range from Pumpkin Ravioli with Corn, Hazelnuts, and Asiago to Strawberry Icebox Pie and are presented alongside stunning photos of the author's beautiful, vintage home in upstate New York. And, of course, the book wouldn't be complete without a sampling of Torey's famous cupcake recipes as well.

Like the cupcakes Torey makes at Magnolia Bakery, this book is a cutie. Filled with Catskills farmscapes, it'll make any cook with a hankering for the country happy. Driven by seasonal ingredients, these recipes are company-worthy and easy to boot. ( New York Daily News, December 17, 2007) This cheery cookbook celebrates the timeless appeal of homemade chicken and chocolate cake on the kitchen table. Torey, owner of the Magnolia Bakery and author of The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook and More from Magnolia, has built her culinary career on simple, classic recipes. Here the focus moves away from cookies and cupcakes (recently namedropped in a Saturday Night Live sketch) to the dishes she makes in her own home in upstate New York. Colorful photographs depict Torey, her partner, and collie dogs in their country-style house amid vintage textiles and tableware. Torey is a believer in fresh, seasonal eating. Her homey, elemental dishes span the seasons, from light summery Eggplant with Red and Yellow Cherry Tomato Sauce to an autumnal Butternut Squash Soup with Apple and Onion. Dinners are divided up into no-fuss weekday and more complicated weekend categories. She's also included the formulas for two of her famous cupcakes: Chocolate with Butterscotch Frosting and Orange Vanilla. Torey goes easy on the text, offering minimal instruction, but these are straightforward recipes to follow, and the result is a tasty blend of nostalgia and innovation.
