Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely wander through a Parisian boulangerie It was such a delight to discover this book! The recipes are magnificent. The shop's timeline from its inception to the present is fascinating, and the highlights of loyal customers is a great read. Don't be surprised if you curl up with a cup of tea in hand along with a madeleine or chocolate-pistachio cookie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful book The book is simply beautiful, from the old-fashioned style to the quality of the materials. The recipes are fairly simple and are chronologically organized, by date of introduction to their store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Book! I bought this book as soon as it came out and so far I have tried two of the cookie recipes: Hazelnut Cookies and Almond Tuiles. They were both delicious. There are beautiful photos for every recipe which I really appreciate.  I can't wait to try some of the chocolate spreads!

Editorial Reviews

The oldest chocolate shop in Paris (opened in 1761) is exactly as you would picture it: the classic Parisian storefront says epicere fine (delicatessan) printed above the door in gold belle Epoque lettering. The window display draws shoppers in with its stacks of exquisite tins and boxes of confections. Inside this Montmartre gem, the scene is just as nostalgic: subway tile floors, white-on-blue enamel signs, and wooden countertops 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 irrEsistible. - Travel & Leisure
