The Art of French Baking

A long time ago I blogged about one of my favourite cookbooks: Je sais cuisiner or I Know How  To Cook, as it is now known in English. It is the equivant to the ‘Joy of Cooking’ here in France and it was lovingly edited for the English version by Clothilde Dusoulier from the fabulous blog Chocolat and Zucchini.

Now the equally fabulous Je sais faire de la patisserie has been translated and edited by Clothilde. The Art of French Baking has every single recipe you could ever want to bake in it. From madeleines, via éclairs to macaroons, you will find all the classic recipes in this book. It was first published in 1938 so the recipes are definitely classic, but they are the type of classics that never go out of fashion!

I have three words: Macarons, Eclairs, Brioches!!!!

I have this, but have yet to bake anything from it. It has been staring at me in an intimidating manner from my bookshelf for some time now and I fear I will have to find my nerve and get going with it. Macarons are a favourite in our house Courtney, but I have only managed to master the Italian version and have had little success with the French.
