Cafe Fernando: Brownies with Hazelnut Butter and Chocolate Lace
About Cafe Fernando: "Hello! My name is Cenk (Jenk). I am a food blogger, novice photographer, seasoned home baker and a shameless chocoholic from İstanbul, Turkey. In 2006, I started this blog to share my kitchen adventures with friends and it got bigger than I’ve ever imagined. I made some wonderful friends along the way and look forward to many more."

Joy the Baker
About Joy the Baker: "I’m Joy. I’m a baker. Had you guessed as much? I’m currently hurtling towards my thirties, trying to show the world, and my kitchen, what’s what. I’m a self taught/ family taught/ taste buds taught baker. I grew up in the kitchen in between my father, who makes a mean Sweet Potato Pie, and my mother, who makes a really weird purple hot dog casserole… don’t ask. Between my kitchen loving parents, the clinking cake pans, and the flying flour, it became clear that baking is in my blood."
