Cookbook Review: Miette

Fast Review: Get inspired to bake up a storm with photos and recipes from San Francisco’s adorably delicious pastry shop

Miette is on many of San Francisco’s best-loved lists of bakeries. Chef and owner Meg Ray shares some of her most popular recipes in Miette: Recipes from San Francisco’s Most Charming Pastry Shop. While Meg is self-taught she never really considered having a career in baking. She actually studied art and design before going to work in technology. She opened Miette, the French word for “crumb” in 2001 and has since opened more stores. Miette has a heavy focus on local and organic and puts an emphasis on baking in the season. Thumb through this book to be inspired to bake classic American layer cakes, French cookies and pastries sure to impress anyone.
