Publisher Comments:

Renowned for beautiful cakes and whimsical confections, Miette Patisserie is among the most beloved of San Francisco's culinary destinations for locals and travelers. Miette's pretty Parisian aesthetic enchants visitors with tables piled high with beribboned bags of gingersnaps, homemade marshmallows, fleur de sel caramels, and rainbows of gumballs. This cookbook brings the enchantment home, sharing 100 secret formulas for favorite Miette treats from chef and owner Meg Ray. More than 75 gorgeous color photos capture the unique beauty of Miette desserts and shops. Scalloped edges on the book block enhance the preciousness of this fetching package. Just like the adorable cakes, cookies, clairs and tarts for sale in Miette's case, this book is irresistible!

This is a very pretty book - lovely design, gorgeous photographs. If, however, you are actually looking for a book to bake from, this is not your book. After going on about how "less is more" Meg Ray then includes recipes that are ludicrously large (she claims they can't be cut down). So, if you want to look at the pictures, by all means, go ahead. If however you don't want to bake 12 dozen chocolate chip cookies, I'd suggest moving on to a book more suited to the home baker.
