About the Author

Kathleen King is the founder of the Hamptons' premier bakery, Tate's Bake Shop, and the creator of America's #1 chocolate chip cookie, according toEveryday With Rachael Ray Magazine. Born and raised on her family's Long Island farmstead, Kathleen began baking and selling her signature handcrafted desserts off of a fold-out card table at age eleven. Now, with distribution into over 5,000 gourmet & specialty retailers across the country, Tate's Bake Shop's line of all-natural baked goods has garnered the attention of the nation and earned Kathleen the praise ofThe New York Times,The Wall Street Journal,Food & Wine Magazine, andNewsweek, to name just a few. Kathleen has appeared on FoxNY's "Good Day New York," Food Network's "Barefoot Contessa" withIna Garten, Plum TV's "Live What You Love," and CNBC's "The Big Idea with Donnie Deutsch" & "How I Made My Millions." In 2011, Kathleen won theGold sofi Award, the top honor in the baking industry.


More About the Author

Called "a destination ... worth putting miles on the odometer" by The New York Times, Tate's Bake Shop in Southampton, NY prides itself on providing simple, all-American desserts. For Kathleen King, founder and owner of the nationally-acclaimed bakery, homespun Americana just comes naturally.

When the magazine "Every Day with Rachael Ray" set out to find America's best-tasting chocolate chip cookie, they singled out Tate's Bake Shop's deliciously natural, caramel-tinged signature cookie as the best of the best. How Kathleen King came to set her treats apart from the rest is a testament to Kathleen's stick-to-itiveness and down-home authenticity.

Named after her father, Tate King, Tate's Bake Shop is a widely recognized brand, sold in key gourmet retail stores across the country; but simple, down-home Americana is at the heart of Tate's. "It's easy for me to do," Kathleen says, "because that's who I am."

Born and raised on Southampton's North Sea Farm, Kathleen has always been self-sufficient. At age eleven, hoping to make enough money to buy her own school clothes, she sold small batches of her chocolate chip cookies to the neighbors from a fold-out card table on her parents' farmstead. Meticulously baked by hand using the freshest ingredients including real butter, the all-natural chocolate chip cookie was a neighborhood sensation. Soon Kathleen was selling more cookies than her father was selling eggs.

By the time she was in high school, King was baking 12-hours a day, perfecting her recipes and making a name for herself within the fashionable communities on the South Fork of Long Island. Kathleen's baking put her through college, and as the demand for her cookies kept growing, she moved her business out of her family's kitchen and opened her own bakery at age 20. King then launched a wholesale business, selling her cookies to specialty and gourmet shops in Manhattan, including the legendary Balducci's Market.

Nearly three decades later, Kathleen King continues to raise the bar in the baking industry. Her award-winning cookies are now sold at over 5,000 gourmet retailers throughout the United States and on her robust e-bakery, www.tatesbakeshop.com.

King's Southampton bakery -- Tate's Bake Shop - is the recipient of multiple best bakery awards and is regarded as a "must-visit" Hamptons' destination. Thousands of customers each week enjoy the shop's more than 100 offerings, including breads, muffins, cakes, pies, seasonal specialties, and of course, cookies!

With a commitment to using nothing but fresh, preservative-free ingredients, and a simple, straightforward approach to baking, Kathleen King has earned a variety of awards and honors. On September 25, 2012, she released Baking for Friends (hardcover, 208 pages), the highly anticipated follow-up cookbook to The Tate's Bake Shop Cookbook (2005, St. Martin's Press, foreword by Ina Garten). Baking for Friends is inspired by Kathleen's desire to share the joy of gourmet baking, and the new book showcases incredible new recipes, features exclusive baking tips, and gives fans across the country a taste of the effortless style that makes Kathleen King the Hamptons' most beloved baker.

I checked this book out of the library thinking I'd copy a recipe or two. I'm trying to cut down on my cookbook collection. After making the chocolate thumbprint cookies, cherry chip cake, and the chunkies, and marking and drooling over at least 10 other recipes I can't wait to try, I realized I was going to have to buy this book.

The Cherry chip cake is genius. I love maraschino cherries, eating them first off my ice cream sundae or digging in my Cherry limeade drink for the cherry. A cake, based on the old cherry chip boxed cakes, was fabulous. I used the juice to tint the icing pink, a tip she gives, I think the three guys I live with thought it was a little girly but it did not stop them from eating it!

Baking for friends is more accessible than bake shop type recipes. I don't have the other Tate bakeshop books, but I find many other bake shop books are hard to translate into home baking.

The recipes are more what you'd bake for your kids school party or a dinner for friends. This isn't to say there aren't some really attractive impressive recipes, including a chocolate tart with raspberry filling I can't wait to try. It's more that the ingredients are readily available and the directions easy to follow for a beautiful result without a lot of the stressful frou frou work found in many bake shop recipes.

The beginning of the book is important to read, how she measures flour, salted vs unsalted butter etc, will make a difference in how her recipes turn out for the baker trying to duplicate her results.

It is taking a really special book to get a space in my groaning overstuffed shelves anymore, but this one has earned a spot.

Kathleen King's recipes always deliver. There are definitely recipes from this book I look forward to trying. If you love pies then you'll have a varied collection to choose from. The health & lifestyle chapter is a bit measley. My greatest disappointment with this book is the chocolate chip cookie recipe. I chose to buy Baking with Friends thinking that she had repeated the recipe from her earlier one in this new book. But alas, she shared the "Chubby Tate" recipe in the new book and I am a complete addict of the thinner ones. So now I have both books. Both this and Tate's Bake Shop Cookbook have chocolate chip cookies on their front cover so don't be deceived.

I'm just going to work my way through this book, start to finish. Read it like a novel, nothing I did not like. Have made her recipes before and they have always come out well. I especially like her cakes. Made the cranberry sauce crumb bars and they were great. Even my husband who is not a big cranberry sauce fan ate them up.

I received this cook book as a Christmas present from my boyfriends Mom. I normally do not buy cook books because I always felt I could find any recipe I need online for free. This book has changed my mind, the recipes in here are amazing and always turn out perfect. I have made a handful of the recipes and I always hear a chorus of compliments, the Banana Mocha Muffins have so far been the biggest crowd pleaser. I can't wait to try more recipes from the book, I highly recommend Baking for Friends!
