I arrived for my audition for the CBS Baking Show in Los Angeles full of excitement. I took a treat that came from the only thing I remember my mother actually baking when I grew up.
My dish was adjusted from the original and plated beautifully. When I was young every year at the holidays my mother made Walnut Kolachi. Then I tried a version at a bakery in New Hampshire that was filled with chocolate instead of walnuts. I couldn’t tell you what it was called or how he made it but I loved it. I would buy it every time I had the chance.
