In keeping with the theme of Bake Sale Cookbook and Sandra's commitment to providing support to America's food banks, she will be hosting the World's Largest Bake Sale with Mario Batali, Emeril Lagasse, Lidia Bastianich and Rosanna Scotto on March 29, 2011 in historic Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal in New York City from 11:30 am - 7:00 pm.
