Cover for Yummy: A History of Desserts
Are you curious about the history of your favorite sweets? Join food sprites Peri, Fee, and Fada as they explore the histories, people, stories, and science behind ice cream, cakes, cookies, and more!

This is my debut comic from Random House Graphic! Published in 2021. It’s middle grade but well-suited for readers of all ages!

Thoughts About Yummy

[Yummy] explains the chemistry of leavening and the chilling action of salt with ice, covers trade routes and monarchies, and includes a handful of recipes. Peri, the food sprite who serves as the eye-opening guide, explains the historic, religious and cultural details that should fascinate adults as well as youngsters.

New York Times

[Yummy] is actually a sugar-coated primer in how to engage with the narrative of shared cultural history...[it] is charming beyond measure, and that is what makes the message so effective. The twee illustrations, populated by their pastel food sprites, could not be any sweeter if they came straight from a piping bag.

Yummy: A History of Desserts is also available in Korean through publisher Sigongsa, translated by Jiyang Noh!

This is the first translated version of anything I’ve ever made, so it has a very special place in my heart!!

Try A Recipe

This is my favorite recipe from Yummy! I've included it here for you to try for yourself if you'd like! I use it all the time...even if you don't make it blueberry, you can make the pie crust and put all kinds of fillings in instead!
