Let Rosie Feed You

If you’re feeling peckish, you’ll find no shortage of temptations at Butter Bakery on 37th and Mackenzie. The sweets on display – cookies, cakes, loafs, cupcakes – are endlessly tempting. What’s it going to be today? Birthday Cake sandwich, Ginger snap, Snickerdoodle, Bajillionaire Bar, Butter tart Bar, Black Bird cake?

If you have time for lunch, sit amidst the warm pink and green Butter florals for the daily soup, quiche, or a delicious turn on Avocado Toast.

Butter Bakery is the entrepreneurial success of Rosie Daykin. After dreaming of owning a bakery since the age of 6 – and taking a similarly high profile turn through interior design – Daykin opened Butter in 2007. You can find her gourmet marshmallows in more than 300 stores across the world.

Daykin’s bestseller cookbooks  – Butter Baked Goods from 2012 and Butter Celebrates! from 2014 – have focused on ‘the delicious baking we do day in and day out at Butter – the kind of nostalgic home baking that, if you’re lucky, you’ll remember from childhood. No mousse cakes or fancy pastries, just simple cookies, bars, cakes, and pies made using the best ingredients.’

For those who want more Butter at home, Daykin has created another gem: Let Me Feed You, with all-day recipes, and photos by Daykin and Janis Nicolay.

Inside, you’ll find recipes like…

This is about baking, Daykin writes, ‘that reminds you that complicated doesn’t necessarily taste better.’
We, of course, focus on the sweets, but Let Me Feed You also offers delicious savouries for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Happy Cooking!
