The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

When Lisa Basini assumed the mantle of “the Baking Coach” in 2005, her mission was to teach people to bake in their own homes. She still organizes custom-designed classes all over Long Island but also teaches workshops at Baking Coach Headquarters in Huntington.
