Author Notes

Let's agree to disagree about whether white chocolate should be called chocolate (I say, let it be!). Instead, let's agree that white chocolate is sweet. Like, really sweet. That's why I love pairing it with spunky ingredients, like spicy ginger, tangy orange, and flaky salt. —Emma Laperruque

Emma is a writer and recipe developer at Food52. Before this, she worked a lot of odd jobs, all at the same time. Think: stir-frying noodles "on the fly," baking dozens of pastries at 3 a.m., reviewing restaurants, and writing articles about everything from how to use leftover mashed potatoes to the history of pies in North Carolina. Now she lives in Maplewood, New Jersey with her husband and their cat, Butter.
