Publisher Comments:

Beloved À la Mère de Famille confectioneries are a venerable Parisian institution. This, their first cookbook after more than 250 years in business, is as tempting and gorgeous as the shop's bewitching displays. With the edges of the book dyed a brilliant orange and a cover featuring an enchanting candy-shop window and richly embossed lettering, this is one of the most beautiful cookbooks you've ever seen. Inside, each of the 95 recipes for classic confections has been lovingly photographed. For the home candy-maker always looking for new and better formulas — and for bakers of all skill levels — this is a complete collection of recipes for À la Mère de Famille favorites, from cakes to marshmallows to ice creams and more.

Recipes include:
Ice Creams

WOW! I just got this book so I haven’t had time to try any of the recipes, but that doesn’t really matter. I (and my French students) have enjoyed poring over the pages. It is a feast for the senses, tactile and visual, from the lovely orange and green cover to the beautiful photos of the confections. It’s a history lesson and a memoir. It’s food porn. I am looking forward to baking with my daughter, which makes me think that this is the perfect Mother’s Day gift, especially since the French word for mother is in the name of the shop/title.
