All week long, the lovely Dorie Greenspan is serving as a Guest Editor here at Food52, sharing recipes and stories from her latest book, Baking Chez Moi. We're also giving away a copy each day! Because we want to give the gift of Dorie.
Today: Let's take a sweet stroll down memory lane with Dorie Greenspan and her fabulous French recipes.
This week has been an embarrassment of riches -- straight from the kitchen of Dorie Greenspan. From Brigitte Bardot's favorite cake to classic Parisian macarons, Dorie has reminded us exactly why we love French food and the stories that surround it. The French are masters of effortless elegance and measured indulgence; their recipes make us feel fancy in an "Oh, this old thing?" kind of way.
Dorie has ushered us into the world of French cuisine and made us feel at home there. Her meticulous detail and approachable writing draw us in and give us the confidence to tackle her recipes ourselves. We can't wait to delve deeper into Baking Chez Moi -- we've only just begun our love affair with its food.
