On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, meet culinary producer Libbie Summers. She lives a food-inspired life, so much so that she’s branded her business that way. Her grandmother thought Betty Crocker was a bore, so Libbie sought to change that. Her newest book, “Sweet & Vicious: Baking with Attitude”, sets a scene for each sweet to be served in. From her Good & Plenty Cupcakes’ pink anise frosting to a Fairground Attraction Cake with over a foot of cotton candy atop, over the top is exactly what these desserts are about! Watch her cookbook trailer and you’ll see. You can also follow Libbie’s musing with photographer Chia Chong on their collaborative/creative blog, Salted and Styled. This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.



“I hate when midwestern and southern cooking gets a bad wrap for being fried or whatever – it’s really clean flavors most of the time.” [07:00]
