Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere
by Dorie Greenspan
No current Talk conversations about this book.
On one hand, the technical information in the book is abundant and invaluable coming from Dorie Greenspan. On the other hand, I really value lots and lots of pictures in my cookbooks, and this one is lacking in that department. At one point I read through 11 recipes without a single photo--not even one of the wee ones they sometimes stick at the top near the names of the recipe. That was super disappointing to me, especially when I've learned so much from Greenspan in other formats. Still, it's a collection of solid traditional French recipes with a fair amount of technical discussion. ( )
Yum! Dorie Greenspan's books always make me picture Dorie in my kitchen coaching me while I bake. She's saying, "Go on girl, you got this. No problems." She writes about each recipe so that anyone can make the presented treat. And everything I've baked from her books has been delicious.

"A "culinary guru" and author of the award-winning Around My French Table and Baking: From My Home to Yours returns with an exciting collection of simple desserts from French home cooks and chefs With her groundbreaking bestseller Around My French Table, Dorie Greenspan changed the way we view French food. Now, in Baking Chez Moi, she explores the fascinating world of French desserts, bringing together a charmingly uncomplicated mix of contemporary recipes, including original creations based on traditional and regional specialties, and drawing on seasonal ingredients, market visits, and her travels throughout the country. Like the surprisingly easy chocolate loaf cake speckled with cubes of dark chocolate that have been melted, salted, and frozen, which she adapted from a French chef's recipe, or the boozy, slow-roasted pineapple, a five-ingredient cinch that she got from her hairdresser, these recipes show the French knack for elegant simplicity. In fact, many are so radically easy that they defy our preconceptions: crackle-topped cream puffs, which are all the rage in Paris; custardy apple squares from Normandy; and an unbaked confection of corn flakes, dried cherries, almonds, and coconut that nearly every French woman knows. Whether it's classic lemon-glazed madeleines, a silky caramel tart, or "Les Whoopie Pies," Dorie puts her own creative spin on each dish, guiding us with the friendly, reassuring directions that have won her legions of ardent fans"--
