Hi there, I’m Dee,
Welcome to my little sweet corner. If you are a passionate baker with an extremely sweet tooth and you spend your days baking, thinking about baking, and talking about baking, then you are at the right place, and I am thrilled to have you here.
A little about me
Born and raised in Israel, I moved to the United States in 2008 after meeting my American husband. Moving was a significant change; I had to say goodbye to my family, friends, and country, but it was also when I picked up a spatula and an oven mitten and started baking.
For a while, I worked as a pastry chef assistant, then as a cake decorator at a retail bakery, and for a short while, I even had a small Jewish Baking business. After that, it was time to leap of faith and start my baking blog, One Sarcastic Baker.
My biggest inspiration is the people I meet. No matter the circumstances, the conversation always leads to their favorite dessert growing up eating and a nostalgic story. (And always, it involves a grandmother.)
My baking science journey started back in 2008. Back then, I could not find a book about baking and science besides How Baking Works. So, it was up to me to search, learn, and connect the dots. I spent the next decade-plus learning everything I could about food science, experimenting, falling, and asking questions.
You don’t have to be a science nerd like me to bake or enjoy this blog, but if you are, check out that I have some good news for you. In 2022, I published my first cookbook, “Baking Science,” a collection of recipes that exhibit how baking science works.
