Baking for Friends

Kathleen King, creator and owner of Tate’s Bake Shop in Southampton, got an early start in the baking business. By age eleven she began selling her baked goods out of her family’s Long Island farmstand. In 1980, Kathleen opened her first bakeshop and just kept baking. Since then, Kathleen’s chocolate chip cookies have been selected as the best of the best, her baked goods are sold in gourmet markets nationwide, and her flagship bakeshop has been voted the Best in The Hamptons year after year. Kathleen is also the author of three cookbooks. Her newest, Baking for Friends, is an excellent choice for beginning bakers and also those more skilled in the art of baking.
