What you see before you is the beginning of a project I have thought about for ages (ok, a few years). I, Justin Kaye, am a rabid Metalhead who also happens to be an avid Baker. I have been called, “The Convexicutioner”, the “Martha Stewart of Metal” and a, “Defender of the Rye.” While I do enjoy these titles, I really just want to spread the knowledge, joy, and overall awesomeness that is baking. From breads, to cakes, to cookies…and hopefully a lot of things in between, I will be sharing with you all easy to follow recipes.
Now, what is the connection? Metal is fast, heavy, slow, aggressive, melancholic, satanic, evil, dark, light…you get it (and you should KNOW IT…Dio is watching). Baking is all of these things as well. Kneading bread is like a heavy riff forming before you. Whisking together sugar and butter is a blast beat waiting to happen. And we cannot forget FIRE. Heat causes numerous ingredients to meld together and form a delicious concoction.
I, Justin Kaye, the Defender of the Rye, hereby invite you to experiment with your oven. Join my Metal-Baking revolution.

“There is a serpent in every Eden
Slick as grease and cold as ice
There is a lie in every meaning
Rest assured to fool you twice”
