Baking Chez Moi with Dorie Greenspan & Giveaway

Baking Chez Moi Cover

When I think baking, I think Dorie Greenspan. Over the years she has been a guru, mentor, and friend, and for that I am so grateful. Lucky for us, Dorie continue to write amazing baking books. I’ll admit, I didn’t think there would ever be a book quite as awesome as Baking: From My Home To Yours, but now there is. Baking Chez Moi is Dorie’s latest book and it is such a treasure. In it she features family-friendly French baking recipes that are neither finicky nor complicated. In fact, they are downright homey!

It doesn’t seem to make sense at first. Why wouldn’t a French baking book be all about pastries? Because, as Dorie explains, French bakers leave the complicated stuff up to the pros. If they want an elaborate eclair they head to their nearest patisserie. For a simple loaf cake or crunchy cookie, they bake at home. And now you can bake just like them thanks for Dorie’s amazing French-style recipes which have been translated for the American kitchen.

I am so thrilled and honored today to be giving away a copy of Dorie’s delicious book. I have been baking from it and I promise you’ll love it as much as I do. Also, if you want to get a taste of the recipes she features check out what’s been said on Food52, in The Boston Globe, and on Mardi’s blog.
