About the author

Delahna Flagg almost opted out of college to attend culinary school. But reason won out and Delahna earned her bachelors... and then headed off to Le Cordon Bleu, where she focused her studies on nutrition and food journalism. At Le Cordon Bleu she showed up for a seminar on aphrodisiacs by Amy Reiley. What she took away from that lecture was the thought that perhaps if she couldn’t convince people to eat well for their overall health, maybe they’d do it for their sexual health. She introduced herself to Amy and later became an intern at EatSomethingSexy.com. After graduation, Delahna went on to work in fine dining kitchens but her heart wasn’t in it. So she returned to school to study physiology and nutrition at a masters and doctoral level. Her class work in cooking for special diets inspired Delahna to start a chef consultancy, cooking for clients with dietary restrictions including diabetics, celiacs and cancer patients. As a chef for special needs clients, veganism inadvertently became Delahna’s specialty. And instead of completing her doctoral dissertation as was expected of her, she took on the role of co-star in Pamela Anderson’s web series, The Sensual Vegan. Delahna currently heads research & development for a company that specializes in creating healthy items for the mass market. She also serves as EatSomethingSexy’s Director of Nutrition. In her free time, she fosters dogs, working to improve their diets, of course! Amy Reiley is recognized as a leading authority on aphrodisiac foods. Her work as been featured in publications as varied as Playboy, National Geographic and The New York Times. She’s helped couples learn to cook on reality television, done guest stints on The Today Show, tricked listeners on NPR’s Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me! and even appeared as an expert guest on the runaway hit podcast, My Dad Wrote a Porno. But her expertise in cooking began with dessert. Like many kids Amy had an insatiable sweet tooth. But as a picky eater, she refused to eat the vanilla sandwich cookies and Neapolitan ice cream her brother always managed to talk her mother into buying as the family’s only desserts. (He knew Amy hated them.) So as soon as her mother allowed her to use the oven by herself, she started making magic with butter, flour and sugar. As her appetite for food knowledge grew, she invested herself in studying the history and culture of food. Eventually, a freelance food writer, she became known for her work on aphrodisiacs. In order to complete her Master’s Degree in Gastronomy from Le Cordon Bleu, Amy wrote her dissertation on the relationship between food and sex in American pop culture. In addition to speaking, writing and consulting on aphrodisiac foods, Amy is the Editorial Director of EatSomethingSexy.com and a freelance wine writer. She has two children, which is the sort of thing that tends to happen when you spend all your time cooking aphrodisiacs. Eat Cake Naked is her fifth aphrodisiac cookbook.

The highly anticipated complement to the New York Times bestselling Momofuku cookbook, Momofuku Milk Bar reveals the recipes for the innovative, addictive cookies, pies, cakes, ice creams, and more from the wildly popular Milk Bar bakery.

Momofuku Milk Bar shares the recipes for Christina Tosi’s fantastic desserts—the now-legendary riffs on childhood flavors and down-home classics (all essentially derived from ten mother recipes)—along with the compelling narrative of the unlikely beginnings of this quirky bakery’s success. It all started one day when Momofuku founder David Chang asked Christina to make a dessert for dinner that night. Just like that, the pastry program at Momofuku began.

Christina’s playful desserts, including the compost cookie, a chunky chocolate-chip cookie studded with crunchy salty pretzels and coffee grounds; the crack pie, a sugary-buttery confection as craveable as the name implies; the cereal milk ice cream, made from everyone’s favorite part of a nutritious breakfast—the milk at the bottom of a bowl of cereal; and the easy layer cakes that forgo fancy frosting in favor of unfinished edges that hint at the yumminess inside helped the restaurants earn praise from the New York Times and the Michelin Guide and led to the opening of Milk Bar, which now draws fans from around the country and the world.

With all the recipes for the bakery’s most beloved desserts—along with ones for savory baked goods that take a page from Chang’s Asian-flavored cuisine, such as Kimchi Croissants with Blue Cheese—and 100 color photographs, Momofuku Milk Bar makes baking irresistible off-beat treats at home both foolproof and fun.
This new study of the intersection of romance novels with vocal music records a society on the cusp of modernisation, with a printing industry emerging to serve people’s growing appetites for entertainment amidst their changing views of religion and the occult. No mere diversion, fiction was integral to musical culture and together both art forms reveal key intellectual currents that circulated in the early nineteenth-century British home and were shared by many consumers. Roger Hansford explores relationships between music produced in the early 1800s for domestic consumption and the fictional genre of romance, offering a new view of romanticism in British print culture. He surveys romance novels by Ann Radcliffe, Matthew Lewis, Sir Walter Scott, James Hogg, Edward Bulwer and Charles Kingsley in the period 1790–1850, interrogating the ways that music served to create mood and atmosphere, enlivened social scenes and contributed to plot developments. He explores the connections between musical scenes in romance fiction and the domestic song literature, treating both types of source and their intersection as examples of material culture. Hansford’s intersectional reading revolves around a series of imaginative figures – including the minstrel, fairies, mermaids, ghosts, and witches, and Christians engaged both in virtue and vice – the identities of which remained consistent as influence passed between the art forms. While romance authors quoted song lyrics and included musical descriptions and characters, their novels recorded and modelled the performance of songs by the middle and upper classes, influencing the work of composers and the actions of performers who read romance fiction.
