Books: Miette

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)


Miette: Recipes from San Francisco’s Most Charming Pastry Shop.

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″ cakes…so 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).

Inside Miette: Recipes from San Francisco’s

 Most Charming Pastry Shop

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.)

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.

    Looks delicious! Not much of a baker, however, I think I will try this recipe.
