If you love baking, cookbooks, or even just looking at gorgeous photography of petite pastries, then you will absolutely adore the ridiculously charming baking book, Miette!
And if you are lucky enough to live in San Francisco, then you may have even had the privilege of walking through the doors of one of the four locations of Miette, dubbed “San Francisco’s most charming pastry shop“. Miette is the french word for “crumb” (love it even more now?) and as quoted from the Miette website, “aptly describes the scale of our petite pastries and minimal decoration.”
If you are like me and live on the complete opposite side of the country though, then the release of Miette’s baking book is a true gift. Opening the book makes you feel as if you’ve walked into the doors of the dreamy patisserie since the photography includes actual images of the shop itself.
The pages are filled with delicious recipes and equally scrumptious photos of cakes, cookies, macarons, tarts and more that are sure to inspire you to put on your apron. (Or perhaps even prompt you to embark on a frantic search to hunt down the gorgeous wallpaper adorning the walls of the shop…which unfortunately…as I found out…is no longer in print). This would make a most beautiful addition to your collection of cookbooks as well as a lovely gift for a friend.
