Quirk Books!! So, I've added the book to my own collection of cookbooks and have decided to give it a read for this Paris in July. I wanted to bake something sweet and thought that this delicious treat would be the perfect dessert to make. What do you think? I know that macarons are THE sweet to eat right now, but I thought I would go old school and try something that has been around for some time and has stood the test of time - madeleines!
Filled with easy-to-follow recipes for both sweet and savory treats, this lovely book is the perfect fit for fans of French tea cakes. There are so many great recipes to choose from, fantastic photos of some mouth-watering treats, and tips on which baking tools and techniques to use. I absolutely loved flipping through this book and reading up on new recipes. I had no clue there were so many great recipes for madeleines - plain, chocolate, fruit and nut, dipped in white chocolate, etc. Plus, you can add sauces to dip them in or eat them with ice cream - a madeleine ice cream sandwich! So many ways to enjoy such a delectable treat!
And now I'm off to bake some madeleines to share with my sister. Adieu!
