After 23 months of testing recipes at home, 6 photo shoots, writing every single word on every single page, burning a few batches of cookies, and dropping a whole cake, I can officially declare my very first cookbook, Jenny McCoy's Desserts for Every Season, is complete!
A million and one thanks to my amazing team: Editor Sandy Gilbert, Photographer Pernille Pedersen, Graphic Designer Jan Derevjanik, Prop Stylist Michelle Wong, Food Stylist Amy Wilkinson, and Recipe Tester Junita Bognanni. Ladies, I could have never completed this project, which I first dreamt up in 1999 while working as a pastry cook at Blackbird.
Desserts for Every Season shall be arriving at bookstores near you on September 24th. Please do consider it for holiday gift giving. The better the book does, the more opportunity I will have to make my dream to be a published cookbook author come true again in the future.
