Lauren Ko bakes with mathematical precision, creating dizzying patterns on her pies and tarts. She claims she’s an amateur baker, but her pictures prove otherwise. Ko has been baking and decorating pies for a few years now.
For an interesting effect, she combines classic crusts with all kinds of fillings – blueberry, kumquat, purple sweet potatoes, etc. Check out her work below and follow her on Instagram for more.
March to a different beet. 🥁| Because were goobers by principle, Valentine’s is an extended excuse for lighthearted, unorthodox traditions for my partner and I—exchanging joke presents (a bouquet of boxers one year, an obese plush T-Rex another) and watching @pinkpanthermgm (the really bad/amazing remakes with Steve Martin). In our golden San Diego days, we’d load up the car with @tjoysterbar tacos and Sour Patch Kids and go to the drive-in theater in our pajamas. This unusually-colored pie crust is an ode to our philosophy that an important aspect of any relationship is fun. Here’s to merriment! | Special thanks to @chefspringsheldon who, after my experiment with raspberry dough went ham (🤣), kindly sent an email walking me through the process of vibrantly coloring with beet compound butter and beet juice! Genius. 💖
On a wild juice chase. 🍊| @thejamlab’s blood orange curd with (more) kiwi tiles because, you guessed it, #costco. 😜 If these chilly months are kiwing you and you’re just biding time until summer 🙋🏻♀️, search for Amisha’s tart recipe on @thefeedfeed’s website and make it immediately. Winter citrus magically transformed into SUNSHINE. Eat your tart out! ☀️🥝
But kiwi see it baked? 🥝| @evakosmasflores’ Blueberry Lemon Olive Oil Curd Tart with hand-cut green and gold kiwi tiles. | A small note of clarification: every other @lokokitchen post is a tart, which generally means that what you see IS the finished and baked version. 🤗 Cheers and thanks for following along! You’re incurdible. 💜💚
