Description

Product Description

A “culinary guru” and author of the award-winning Around My French Table and Baking: From My Home to Yours returns with an exciting collection of simple desserts from French home cooks and 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 fascinating 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.

Like the surprisingly easy chocolate loaf cake speckled with cubes of dark chocolate that have been melted, salted, and frozen, which she adapted from a French chef’s recipe, or the boozy, slow-roasted pineapple, a five-ingredient cinch that she got from her hairdresser, these recipes show the French knack for elegant simplicity. In fact, many 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; and an unbaked confection of corn flakes, dried cherries, almonds, and coconut that nearly every French woman knows.

Whether it’s classic lemon-glazed madeleines, a silky caramel tart, or “Les Whoopie Pies,” Dorie puts her own creative spin on each dish, guiding us with the friendly, reassuring directions that have won her legions of ardent fans.

Featured Recipes from Baking Chez Moi

Review

" My favorite baking book of the season is Dorie Greenspan’s Baking Chez Moi. With superb photography of finished dishes and Ms. Greenspan’s clear, clean style, this is a book for any level of baker who wants to broaden his or her repertoire."--Michael Ruhlman for the Wall Street Journal " Approachable and adaptable."--The New York Times " Greenspan has the gift of clarity and making even the complicated seem doable, which in her hands, it is."--Corby Kummer for The Atlantic "French home baking, despite what you might think, is easy, says baking goddess Dorie Greenspan. All you need are a few high-quality ingredients and a bit of care....nearly every page promises some useful tips and shortcuts for the avid baker..."--NPR.org
"No matter how much you don’t like to bake, aren’t good at baking, don’t even want to bake … if you listen to [Dorie] long enough, you’ll find yourself hankering to get your hands into some flour, certain even you can whip up some laborious, glorious baked treat."
-- Associated Press

"On the page, Greenspan talks as if she’s having coffee with you, about where she found recipes, about the person who gave them to her, and when she might serve them...  The heart of the book is sweets that aren’t a bit difficult."
--Boston Globe

" Bakers across the world rejoice when Dorie Greenspan comes out with a new cookbook."
-- Washington Post

"While a trip to France may not be in everyone’s near future, veteran cookbook author Greenspan takes home bakers on a tour of Paris through her exceptional collection of recipes (divided into chapters including “Simple Cakes,” “Fancy Cakes,” “Tarts and Galettes,” and “Baby Cakes and Petite Pastries”). French “cousins” to American recipes such as the “Fluted Carrot-Tangerine Cake,” and the author’s adaptations on French creations such as “Gâteau Basque Fantasie,” give readers something they won’t find in other baking tomes. While some multistep selections are more suited for the experienced baker, less involved yet equally impressive recipes include a simple plum tart and Nutella-banana panna cotta. Unusual finds like pithiviers, a French pastry named after a city in northern France, are also included. Hefty headnotes and serving notes provide information about recipe origins and traditions. This is an ideal holiday gift." 
-- Publishers Weekly, starred

"Acclaimed author Greenspan—who lives part time in Paris and has collaborated with such famous chefs as Pierre Hermé, Daniel Boulud, and Julia Child—has learned that some recipes are best left to the pros. While several of Greenspan''s 11 cookbooks feature intricate, show-stopping desserts, her latest focuses on homey baked goods and pared-down versions of traditional French pastries. Home cooks won''t need beeswax and expensive copper molds to make Greenspan''s canelés nor will they be chided for using store-bought puff pastry to make palmiers or pithiviers. All types of desserts—crunchy, creamy, cakey, frozen, fruity, and fried—are included, as are simple accompaniments such as homemade crème fraiche, chocolate sauce, and candied fruit . VERDICT: Combining everyday desserts with doable versions of extremely popular treats (think macarons, éclairs, and crackle-top cream puffs), Greenspan''s new collection is an instant classic."
-- Library Journal, starred

You people who bake a lot already know who Dorie Greenspan is and how good her books are. You just need to know if the recipes are up to her standards. Yup! They''re good. As always, you may decide to tweak things to your taste, but it''s all good as is. :) AND ingredients have both American measurements and grams. Woot!

You newbies who don''t know, you can trust Dorie Greenspan. Her recipes are solid - no steps left out and very tasty. If she wrote it, it''s a good cookbook. As good for newbies as for anyone! She walks you through it. No knowledge is assumed on your part. She tells you every step, so you really can''t mess it up. :)

I''ve been working my way through...I was going to make those little caramels first, but then I saw the Rhubarb-Brown Sugar Cake and all bets were off. YUM!! It''s like I waited my whole life for that. Then another and another...I still haven''t made the damn caramels. I gained five pounds making all these yummy things and indulging too much, so I have to stop for a bit. :)

But it''s all good. You can never go wrong with Dorie Greenspan. If she wrote it, it''s good. :)

I have a very, very small collage on the side of my fridge (close to the oven) with the faces of my Grandma, Julia Child, Alton Brown and Dorie Greenspan. I hung it as a joke, hoping I''d get some kind of cosmic culinary assistance. You have to be good to make the side of the fridge! :)

I''ve been baking from Dorie Greenspan''s "Baking" cookbook since it came out years ago. It is my favorite baking book & I''ve baked at least half the recipes in it, all with success. I was excited to hear she was finally coming out with another baking cookbook - she doesn''t crank these out like bad cookies. It''s obvious she takes her time & creates a cookbook that is meaningful & will actually be used.

The cookbook is beautiful & big with easy to read type & gorgeous photos (not every recipe has a photo). It is the same style as her "Baking" cookbook. She gives measurements in European metric weight & the usual American volume. I use either, it just depends on what I''m baking. She gives information on storing or making ahead & serving. Also ideas on changing ingredients for different flavor, etc. She is an open-minded cook & encourages you to experiment & make the recipe your own. Most of the recipes are not crazy complicated although she does have some for more experienced cooks. She is very good at explaining each step in her recipes so I would think even a novice cook would be successful. There are many simple recipes.

This is not strictly a baking cookbook. There are also puddings, custards, caramels, candies, sauces, etc.

This is another great cookbook -maybe not as great as "Baking"; that would be hard to top but this is a very close second. I got this 2 weeks ago & have been busily baking from it. Everything has turned out delicious so far. I started with the beautiful "Custardy Apple Squares". I had a few honey crisp apples that needed to be used so serendipity. It was simple & fast. I watched it bake, waiting & wondering if it would get that puffy/custardy look & it did! It looked just like the photo & tasted delicious. This would make a wonderful weekend breakfast treat too. This recipe will go in to my fall/winter dessert rotation.

Next I tried her "Saint-Pierre Poppy Seed Cake". Having a Czech grandma, I am a sucker for anything poppy seed. Clementines are in season so that is what I have in my fridge & used in this recipe. This is a fairly simple loaf cake that keeps well. I added nutmeg because that is what my grandma would have done - nutmeg was her secret weapon. It is nothing fancy but it is delicious & it was delicious the next day.

I also baked her "Black-and-White Madeleines" for a change from the Madeleines recipe in her "Baking" cookbook - my favorite Madeleine recipe. Also excellent & a nice change with the chocolate - yum.

She even has a recipe for "Parisian Macarons" & "Basque Macarons". I love baking Macaron (takes a lot of trial & error to get them right) but have not tried these yet. I will give them a go in the winter as I gear up to make Macaron Valentine treats for friends and family. But just looking through the recipe, I think it will be a success. She gives very clear step-by-step instructions which is very important for baking these. If you try them & they don''t turn out the first time, you are not alone - they are very tricky no matter how good the recipe is. I''m impressed & thrilled that she included a recipe.

If you like classic French cuisine, buy this cookbook. You won''t go wrong.
PS- I probably have over 200 cookbooks, and I am very selective about adding another one unless it is exceptional.

I can''t wait to make at least half of what''s in this book. Very French, very Dorie. I wish every recipe had a photo, of course. Not sure why her publisher does that.
Also, I ordered from a seller who advertised the book as "new" but when it arrived, there was wear on the dust jacket probably from storage and, very weirdly, the entire book was curved. It does not lay flat on the table. I had hoped to leaf through this and, if I liked it, pass it on as a gift for a friend next week, but I''ll have to keep this copy and order another, this time from Amazon.

This is a really great cookbook if you love desserts. I love French pastry and cakes, but I don''t always want to tackle a fussy recipe that takes hours to complete. The recipes in this book are geared to the experienced home cook - you still have to have some baking skills, but most of the recipes are easily completed in about an hour. Perfect if you''re in the mood for some wonderful confection on a weekend afternoon!
In addition, the recipes are well-worked out and tested so that they come out the way they''re supposed to. Every recipe uses natural ingredients so I feel good about serving the results to my family.

This s my 1st time, owning a Dorie Greenspan''s book. I hav heard a lot about her books, especially "Baking from my home to yours". The book s quite heavy with 477 pages.First time Dorie included Macaron recipes in her book but what i felt was, The recipes are for quite a large number. For eg Parisian macaron recipe makes about 45 sandwiched macarons ie, 90 macarons. All I can say is divide the recipe depends upon your oven capcity or the no of servings ur gonna make. Each recipe has got some stories about the recipe origin or from whom she got tat recipe. It has some simple and tasty recipes too ...Slow roasted spiced pineapple, Palmiers, Merveilles etc..How could I forget to mention it, It has the recipe for Eclairs. If I hav to mention the important recipes it ll go on and on..The book consists of recipes from classic french one to some borrowed & invented one of Dorie Greenspan.
