Miette: Recipes from San Francisco's Most Charming Pastry Shop by Meg Ray is the prettiest (or should say one of the prettiest) cookbooks that has come across my desk. It's graced with scalloped edges, lush photographs of delicious baked goods, and easy to follow recipes.
Miette was born of Meg Ray's lifelong love for baking, pretty patterns, and Parisian pastry shops. She taught herself how to bake from reading The Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook as a young girl. Which I admire tremendously.
Please take a few moments out of your day to watch this video. Promise it will make you smile...and hungry for an afternoon treat!!
The Country Cooking of Ireland does it again! It won best international cookbook of 2011 at the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) Awards during the 33rd IACP Annual Conference in Austin, Texas last week.
Is it luck of the Irish? Sounds more like 'third time's a charm' to me... The book has already won two James Beard awards, and now this makes prestigious award #3! Congratulations to the whole team that brought this gorgeous and delicious book to life.
