Just when you thought you couldn't handle one more quinoa salad or cold-pressed juice, here comes a cookbook devoted to the best meal ever - a char-crusted, luscious steak, followed by the kind of homemade cake that wears its butter, eggs, sugar, and love proudly. Steak and Cake is a paean to pleasure from Elizabeth Karmel, who's both America's leading female pitmaster and a gifted baker who grew up in the South's cake belt. Now she's put her two passions together in a unique cookbook of more than 100 recipes. Why not Cowboy Steak with Whiskey Butter followed by a Whiskey Buttermilk Bundt Cake? Or a Porterhouse for Two with Wild Mushroom Saute, followed by My Mother's Freshly Grated Coconut Cake? Or have fun by doing your own mixing and matching of steaks with cakes. Along the way you'll gain a butcher's knowledge of steak - foolproof techniques for cooking steak on the grill, in the oven, in a cast-iron pan. There are steaks whole, cut up in kebobs and tacos, and ground in burgers. Recipes for the sauces and great steakhouse sides are included, plus a lifetime's worth of tips that take the intimidation out of baking from scratch. Julia Child once said, "The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook." This book would have made her very proud.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Every dish is decadent; every match of meat and sweet, delicious." -- Booklist, Starred Review

"Wonderfully indulgent cookbook...Karmel's teaching skills truly shine in the book's final 50 pages, where she presents excellent primers on the basics of steak and cake preparation. Whether smothered in onions or covered in frosting, Karmel's offerings are as rich as they are satisfying."--Publishers Weekly

"[Karmel] ingeniously pairs the entrees with dessert recipes, like Bob's Steak Au Poivre with a Poppy-Seed Cake. It's perfect for the holiday, as she writes in the intro, 'steak and cake turn any day, and any occasion, into a special one.'" -- The Daily Beast

"Home cooks at all levels will be empowered by this cookbook's clear step-by-step instructions, as well as the included primers outlining all the basics for each." --Library Journal

"In her long career, Elizabeth Karmel has helped us grill hotter, barbecue smokier, and build big flavors whatever we cook. Her latest book combines two epic American foods in one poetic mashup. A must have whether you're a hard core carnivore or an inveterate sweet tooth."
--Steven Raichlen

"Steak and Cake" is a keeper -- wonderful steak preparations and yummy cake recipes, all written with easy-to-follow instructions and illustrated with full-color photographs." -- The Advocate
