Whip up sweet treats from Paris at home with this collection of ninety-five recipes by the chief chocolatier of a revered Parisian confectioner.

Beloved À la Mère de Famille confectioneries are a venerable Parisian institution. This, their first cookbook after more than 260 years in business, is as tempting and gorgeous as the shop’s bewitching displays. With the edges of the book dyed a brilliant orange and a cover featuring an enchanting candy-shop window and richly embossed lettering, this is one of the most beautiful cookbooks you’ve ever seen. Inside, each of the ninety-five recipes for classic confections has been lovingly photographed. For the home candymaker always looking for new and better formulas—and for bakers of all skill levels—this is a complete collection of recipes for À la Mère de Famille favorites, from cakes to marshmallows to ice creams and more.

“As much a tribute to the company’s culture and longevity as a practical, instructional cookbook, À La Mère de Famille is a treat to be savored by anyone who loves sweets, Paris, or both.” —Saveur
