Books: Miette

July 19, 2011

Meg Ray
had a passion for cake decorating
when she was a child,
and today this self-taught
baker extraordinaire
is the author
(with Leslie Jonath)

M  I  E  T  T  E
is a brilliant book of recipes
from the charming pastry shop
Miette in San Francisco.

Meg makes these petite 6" they're healthier!

Meg has chosen to focus on creating
simple cakes and pastry...
all of which are aesthetically DIVINE.
But it is their DELICIOUSNESS
which sets them apart.

I so love Miette's blend of European and American
influences and can't wait to try their recipe
for macarons (see my macarons here).

is gorgeous photography
by Frankie Frankeny and
everything you need to know
to create cakes, cookies, bars, and even...omg...

*say it with me*

Fleur de Sel Caramels!

(Yes, I've made these! I am more than a blog potato, people,
and trust me, nothing says i love you like a good fleur de sel caramel.)

sweet fading roses in a spot where I devoured this sweet book

(French for crumb)
and enjoy every last gorgeous crumb.

(Is it just me, or does
'casual afternoon cake'
sound beyond dreamy?)

Peace to you right where you are.
