It's ninety-six pages of recipes, essays, illustrations, poems, fiction, and photographs include:

  • An interview with a Times Square Cookie Monster mascot trading selfies for tips by Katie Way
  • Sweet and surreal fiction by Catherine Lacey, Hilary Leichter, and Melissa Lozada-Oliva
  • An admiring salute to the cookiecutter shark by Sabrina Imbler
  • A feature on the coalition of international workers staffing the Canadian Oreo factory assembly line by Soobin Kim

  • An ode to the psychic pleasures of wearing gourmand perfumes by Tracy Wan
  • Plus a dishy reflection on being the head chef at a powerful Wall Street bank in the eighties, a eulogy for the end of the browser cookie, using Lorna Doones as currency in the psych ward, and much more.
