About Alexandra Stafford

Ali Stafford, author of the hit food blog “Alexandra’s Kitchen” (www.alexandracooks.com), grew up eating her mother’s peasant bread at nearly every meal—the recipe for which was a closely guarded family secret. When her website began to grow in popularity, readers began asking how to make the bread they’d heard so much about. Alexandra’s mother acquiesced, and the recipe got shared, and has since inspired many who had deemed bread-baking an impossibility to give it a try, and their results have exceeded expectations. It all led to Ali’s recent cookbook, “Bread Toast Crumb,” praised by the world’s top-selling baking-book authors including Dorie Greenspan and David Lebovitz. Ali is also a columnist for Food52.com.
