Dorie Greenspan, the bestselling author of 11 cookbooks, has done it again with an irresistible collection of radically simple desserts from French home cooks and pastry chefs. With her groundbreaking bestseller Around My French Table, Dorie Greenspan changed the way we view French food. Now, in Baking Chez Moi, she explores the world of French desserts, bringing together a charmingly uncomplicated mix of contemporary recipes, including original creations based on traditional and regional specialties, and drawing on seasonal ingredients, market visits, and her travels throughout the country. Many of the recipes are so radically easy that they defy our preconceptions: crackle-topped cream puffs, which are all the rage in Paris; custardy apple squares from Normandy about which Dorie says “I'm predicting that this is going to be one of the most popular recipes from Baking Chez Moi. It's wonderfully delicious, super-easy to make and uses ingredients you probably already have. Plus it comes together quickly and can be eaten shortly after it comes out of the oven. Perfection!”; and an unbaked confection of corn flakes, dried cherries, almonds, and coconut that nearly every French woman knows.— Rosanna Nissen
