"Let's kick sugar to the side and dig deeper into our kitchens and cupboards to discover other balancing acts and sweeteners that challenge what can really embolden a recipe. What results is a deeper connection, a more compelling depth of flavor, and complex baked goods and desserts that are all the more irresistible as the absence of sugar makes way for more flavors to come forward-exactly what Joanne does best." - Christina Tosi, author of Momofuku Milk Bar
