Everybody who meets Jessie Sheehan wants to be her friend. She’s a brilliant Brooklyn-based baker, mom, and runner who makes some of the best treats you’ve ever tasted. (Have you tried her chocolate rugelach? Then you know what we’re talking about.) Jessie’s newest cookbook, The Vintage Baker, is out now and it’s a celebration of the vintage recipe pamphlets she has collected over the years. Jessie didn’t set out to be a baker. She ditched her career as a lawyer and talked her way into a job at Baked, the influential bakery in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and never looked back. Tune in to hear about her new book, her career pivot, and even her best exercise advice (hint–it involves coffee!).
