Local food bloggers are baking for charity – and you’re invited

April 11th 12:04pm, 2011

041111_BakeSaleIf you’re a regular reader of local food blogs like Cupcake Project and Rhubarb and Honey, you know that these bloggers know their way around a kitchen. Cooking is their passion, and their photos and recipes of tempting, tasty dishes can inspire just about anyone to spend some time by the stove (not to mention make you wonder where they find the time to create such masterpieces).

Next month, you can share your appreciation for all this fantastic food as it jumps from your computer screen to Sappington Farmers’ Market for the Food Blogger Bake Sale. The ladies responsible for the blogs listed above, Stefani Pollack and Kimberly Henricks-Friedhoff, respectively, will be joined by fellow food blogger Andrew Mark Veety for a sale of homemade goodies to benefit Share Our Strength, a group that fights childhood hunger in America.

One of the coolest things about the Food Blogger Bake Sale is that it’s a national effort coordinated by personal chef and food blogger Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking fame; Pollack, Henricks-Friedhoff and Veety are serving as hosts for Missouri. Of course, the best thing about the sale is the sweet treats baked by the bloggers and other serious home bakers which will be up for sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the market on Saturday, May 14.

Home cooks willing to donate their baked goods and local bakeries interested in donating gift cards can e-mail Pollack for more information. And whether you’re simply looking for a sugar fix or you’re hoping to meet the folks behind your favorite culinary click-throughs, all hungry St. Louisans are encouraged to attend.

Some fun trivia about the parties involved: Henricks-Friedhoff is a big cheese at Slow Food St. Louis; Pollack once baked triangular cupcakes topped with hamantaschen cookies for Purim; and Veety’s Church of Burger and Church of Pizza are thoughtful, impressive projects ranking the best of these foods in the St. Louis area. As for Dalkin, the national organizer for the event, well she admits on her blog that she arranges the cookbooks on her shelves by the color of their spines.
