Praise for Baking Chez Moi

“This personal book on homey French cooking is so beautiful that you’ll want to lick the pages. I’ll be making my way through every easy, delicious recipe.” —Ina Garten, author of the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks and star of the Food Network TV show

“Anyone interested in honest yet unfussy cooking, no matter where they call home, should have this collection of recipes in the kitchen.” —David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen

“Because [Greenspan] is as companionable a writer as she is a cook, this book is as much fun to read as it is to cook from. If Julia Child was the first to attempt to demystify French cooking for the Stateside home chef, Greenspan succeeds in making it seem eminently doable and easy.” —Alexander Lobrano, New York Times T Magazine and author of Hungry for France and Hungry for Paris

“On the page, Greenspan talks as if she’s having coffee with you, about where she found recipes, about the person who gave them to her, and when she might serve them… The heart of the book is sweets that aren’t a bit difficult.” —Boston Globe

With 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 mix of contemporary recipes that emphasis 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.
