    Truly Sweet Treat from a Sweetheart! Sweet Melissa Brooklyn,NY

    I have the pleasure of knowing Melissa Murphy personally and can vouch for the quality and scrumptiousness of each and every recipe in her long-awaited cookbook. She put all her heart into each of these gems and it's a delight to see someone be so passionate about food after so many years in the biz. Her Sweet Melissa Patisseries have been a mainstay of Brownstone Brooklyn dating back 10 years to a time when this area was just beginning to transform, leading the culinary rebirth of NY's coolest borough. I think as America's love affair with all things 'foody' matures, people will move away from the fascination with fussy and 'intellectual' food, and lovingly embrace what really makes our hearts pound and mouths water. In this case, superbly baked pastries of the highest quality made from fresh, whole, REAL ingredients-- no skimping and an emphasis on FLAVOR and TEXTURE. In the realm of dessert especially, what appeals to the passions are those classic and legendary associations from our childhood. In this case, a perfect combination of French and American influence. Buy the book and whip up a batch of her famous Butterscotch Pudding, Bee Stings, Spiced Pumpkin Cookie Cakes 'think pumpkin whoopie pie', or her reknowned Chestnut Honey Madeleines which are surely inspiring some budding Brooklyn-born Proust as I write. All her recipes are easily accessible to the home cook and deliver that hard-to-come-by, flavor-popping yumminess. Treat yourself and experience something we Brooklynites have had to ourselves for a while. We're happy to share. Happy Eating!
