Read Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere Online Free - 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.

I can already tell that this is going to be one of those cookbooks---the one's that you're constantly pulling from the shelf, that no matter how hard you try to keep them clean, they always end up spattered with batter and chocolate, that end up with tabbed pages everywhere...
This is a collection...

You can read this book while dieting because the recipes are so detailed you feel like you've been there and eaten.

I don't know why it hadn’t occurred to me before that Goodreads would list cookbooks. Um, they’re books, Shana. Duh.
Well, I’m so glad they do.
Now it is totally weird to say I read a cookbook because a cookbook isn’t like a novel, where you generally need to read cover to cover to legitimately say...

My father gave this to me for Christmas last year, and it is one of the only cookbooks I have that I want to cook every single recipe. I have baked quite a few recipes so far, and all have turned out pretty well, or fantastic. Greenspan's directions are clear and concise, and she is endlessly rea...

Oh, Dorie, how I admire and adore you. This is my favorite of her books thus far! Every page made me squeal and sigh and dream about cooking my way through the book. An outstanding, classic-but-with-twists, lovely book.

As always lovely recipes from Greenspan, but as always sometimes a little intimidating.

It's a very big, heavy book, and quite wordy, (but lovely photos) - but then I'm an experienced cook/baker. The one thing I wished had been included, were photos of all the recipes - several recipes only have directions. I will probably not buy it, but borrow from the library when I'm feeling in...
