Sweet Melissa Baking Book on Sale @ Bk Culture

My favorite baking book of all time is on sale at book culture!!  The chef, Melissa, owns a patisserie (two actually) in Brooklyn and has recipes for all her best-selling creations, including THE most divine clover-honey madeleines ever.  I’ve made a few of the recipes including the madeleines, a truly great cherry double chocolate chip cookie recipe, and the most amazing pie ever–a cherry and pistachio pie.  Her recipes require a little more prep and attention but they’re all worth it!

I wanted to link to m y interview with her for Gobbl but Gobbl has disappeared from the internets, how sad!!!  She was one of the most pleasant and generous people I interviewed that summer.  I visited the patisserie in Carrol Gardens and can’t wait to go back when the weather is warm; it’s complete with a really beautiful backyard type area where people can read and just chill.
