The Last Bookstore is pleased to host author Audrey Shulman as she serves up samples from her memoir/cookbook, SITTING IN BARS WITH CAKE: Lessons & Recipes from One Year of Trying to Bake My Way to a Boyfriend. Stop by for a free slice!
It’s hard to meet people in a big city, let alone any city. And after living in LA for several years as a single lady, Audrey Shulman turned to baking. But rather than eating her cakes solo over the sink, she brought them to bars, inviting guys over with a heady dose of butter and sugar. SITTING IN BARS WITH CAKE recounts Audrey’s year spent baking, bar-hopping, and offering slices of cake to men in the hope of finding her boyfriend (or, at the very least, a date). With 35 inventive recipes based on her interactions with guys from all walks of life, from a Sticky Maple Kiss Cake to a Bitter Chocolate Dump Cake, this charming book pairs each cake with a short essay and tongue-in-cheek lesson about picking up boys in bars.
Audrey Shulman is an avid baker and relentless hostess. Her blog has been featured on The Huffington Post, The Rachael Ray Show, Jezebel, The New York Post, The LA Times, and On Air With Ryan Seacrest. Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Audrey lives in Los Angeles, where she can often be found eating pumpkin flavored desserts. She is a graduate of Bennington College in Vermont.
