Emily Petrick

Emily is a professionally trained baker and food stylist living in Los Angeles with her husband and her dog, Crosby. She believes that sweets are an indulgence, and if you're going to do it, do it right! Dessert should be delicious, decadent and made with the best ingredients available. She's happiest when she is experimenting and making a mess in her kitchen. Her favorite things are good dark chocolate, big bowls of pasta and coffee in bed.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten from your mother?
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. It sounds so simple, but it makes me think twice about things all day long.
Fave quote?
“With enough butter, anything is good.” – Julia Child
Best thing you’ve learned as a daughter?
My mother is the most selfless, giving person I know. She loves so deeply. I really like to think that I have learned how to love from her.
Something people would be surprised to learn about you?
I’m a baker, but I don’t have a sweet tooth AT ALL! If I’m craving something, it's going to be salty and greasy (um, French fries, please!).
Finish the following sentence: I can’t start the day without…
green tea and about ten minutes of quiet time.
