It's Samin! The star of the Netflix series Salt Fat Acid Heat and author of the blockbuster cookbook is our latest cover girl. In honor of our 13th issue, we asked Samin Nosrat 13 questions about her life, her TV show, mental health, and more. We also ask why she thinks her show has resonated so strongly with so many of us. "I was given the opportunity to just be me," she said, "and not have to be or look or act like anyone else." You are one of a kind, Samin, and we're so honoured to spotlight you!
Because this is our Baker's Dozen issue, we did our first-ever bakers' survey! Discover the cookbooks, tools, trends, and baked goods beloved by more than 100 of your favourite bakers. And be sure to check out our celebration of Sourdough Nation!

A word from editors, Kerry & Claudia:
“Today, if you have a big idea, it’s easier than ever to bring it to life. With Kickstarter and social media, entrepreneurs and doers can make things happen in a way they couldn’t just a few years ago.
If you’re plugging away at your pet project or trying to hatch your dream, we’re rooting for you and we hope the women in this issue inspire you. Who knows? Maybe we’ll be reading about you one day. “
