Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As much a tribute to the company's culture and longevity as a practical, instructional cookbook, À La Mère de Famille is a treat to be savored by anyone who loves sweets, Paris, or both." - Saveur"

Inside this Montmartre gem...wooden coutertops [are] lined with glass jars bursting with sweets, including bon bons, fruit confits, caramels, and cookies. Everything is divided into two categories - les incontournables (roughly, "impossible to ignore"), and nouveautes (novelties) - but all are irrésistible." - from Travel & Leisure
