Her Milkshakes Bring All the Boys to the Yard 

Thursday, Apr 11 2013
It's been a hectic five years since Seattle chocolatier Autumn Martin founded Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery, a purveyor of organic American comfort desserts (a pleasant pleonasm if ever there were one). As if becoming pastry master at Seattle's Canlis restaurant and head chocolatier at Theo Chocolate, the first roaster of organic and fair trade-certified cocoa in the United States, weren't enough, now Martin presents her new book, Malts & Milkshakes: 60 Recipes for Frosty, Creamy Frozen Treats, which shows you how to make milkshakes yourself without ever having to trot down to the local fast-food dump and subject yourself to its never-ending retinue of culinary atrocities. Can you stand the concept of a booze-infused or a Bacon Oatmeal Raisin Cookie shake? Also, Martin has the metabolism of a laser beam, so she must be doing something right in the building of her apparently deadly dessert treasures.
