If anyone knows about malts and milkshakes, it’s Autumn Martin, who received Edmonds Community College’s 2008 Distinguished Alumni Award.
Now you can learn a few of Martin’s secrets in a sweet collection of 60 recipes dishing up comforting dessert drinks that put a new spin on an old-fashioned treat.
Martin’s first book, “Malts and Milkshakes,” will be published April 9.
Two days before that, though, you can pick up a copy at Martin’s popular Hot Cakes shop in Ballard at a book-release celebration.
(Added incentive: free milkshakes!)
Martin studied culinary arts at Edmonds CC and went on to a career in the field in 2002.
At Edmonds CC, Martin earned a Foundation scholarship and, as president of the college’s Chef’s Club, cooked for crowds at big events.
