It Has Arrived!
How many of you remember my post about the book PastryParis by Susan Hochbaum from a year ago August (and another one here)? It seems like we've waited forever, but now the wait is over! PastryParis is now available, published by The Little Bookroom! Congratulations to Susan! How gratifying it must be to see a project such as this come to fruition! Truly a beautiful gem of a book! In it, she demonstrates to us that, indeed, "In Paris, everything looks like dessert."! Such a treat this book is, with its beautiful photography of the beauty of Paris and also of luscious pastries that resemble many of the landmarks! I have to tell you that one of the things that I also appreciate is how she discusses not only the historical significance of the places pictured, but also explains what each pastry is and how it is made. So, please treat yourself and get a copy of this lovely, lovely book! Make yourself a cup of your favorite tea and imagine yourself here in one of the comfiest chairs, devouring this book like it was one of the pastries pictured inside!
A special note to my friends in Paris, Susan will be signing her book at the following places:
