Dorie GreenspanWith her groundbreaking bestseller, Around My French Table, renowned cookbook author and baker Dorie Greenspan changed the way Americans view French Food. Now in BAKING CHEZ MOI: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere, she explores the captivating world of French desserts, bringing together a charmingly uncomplicated combination of contemporary recipes that emphasize the French knack for elegant simplicity.”

“A little over five years ago, Dorie set out to observe and write about some of the best French pastry chefs behind the world’s most accomplished desserts – those towering architectural confections that are as much art as food. She went in search of what she called her “Ph.D. in pastry.”

“However, it didn’t take her long to recognize that she was continually drawn to the simplest sweets – those of daily life – the home-baked cakes, tarts, pastries, and cookies we all crave every day. BAKING CHEZ MOI is the culmination of all of Dorie’s discoveries, an irresistible collection of radically simple desserts inspired by years of travel through France. Incorporating the country’s traditions, specialties, and seasonal ingredients as well as the recipes shared by talented home bakers and pastry chefs.
