The heartwarming story of how NCIS star Pauley Perrette and
her two best friends created a Southern-style bake shop in
Manhattan—a celebration of love and friendship with gorgeous
photographs and delicious recipes.
Nestled in the heart of midtown New York is a little shop
with a big story. An all-natural bake shop that specializes
in Southern baked goods, Donna Bell’s is owned by Pauley
Perrette, the actress who plays “Abby Scuito” on CBS’s NCIS,
and her two best friends, Darren Greenblatt and Matthew
Sandusky. It was named in honor of Pauley’s late mother, who
is the beloved inspiration for everything they bake.
It all started in 1993, when Pauley met Darren in New York
City’s Hell’s Kitchen, just blocks away from where the shop
is currently located. The two became inseparable friends and
Pauley’s Southern mom would welcome Darren to their home
with mouthwatering treats. Darren loved this food and soon
left his successful career in fashion to open a food truck
that sold Southern desserts at the Jersey Shore. Eventually
he wanted to expand and turned to Pauley and their friend
Matthew—who worked in the Los Angeles food industry—for
help. Soon Matthew was on his way to New York to open Donna
Bell’s Bake Shop with Pauley and Darren.
With recipes for favorites like buttermilk biscuits,
chocolate chip-almond scones, and peach streusel muffins;
personal photographs from Pauley, Darren, Matthew, and Donna
Bell herself; this is the story how one fantastic bake shop
brings warmth and happiness—one treat at a time—to the urban
jungle that is New York City.
