Paris Booksigning: This Saturday, July 14th

I’m doing a little booksigning this Saturday at La Cuisine cooking school in Paris. It’s going to be an informal affair and if you’d like to come and get a book signed, this is your chance.

There will be copies of Ready for Dessert, The Perfect Scoop, and The Sweet Life in Paris and I’ll be at the school, from 5:30 to 7:30pm, which is located at 80, quai de l’Hôtel de Ville. You can get a map, and more information, at the Facebook event page.

Happy Bastille Day!

Get-Together This Saturday at Sugarplum Bake Shop in Paris!

I don’t think anyone out there is more excited than I am for the get-together this weekend at Sugarplum Cake Shop in Paris! There’s going to be cake, cookies, and lots of other sweet treats to sample.

The event will take place this Saturday, October 22, from 6pm to 8pm. Copies of The Sweet Life in Paris, Ready for Dessert, and The Perfect Scoop will be available – Ready for Dessert and The Perfect Scoop will be the new UK editions – and perhaps a good chance to tick off a few gifts on your holiday list, too.

If you haven’t been into the Sugarplum Cake Shop, you’re in for an amazing time and it’s going to be lots of fun, and a chance to taste some of their incredibly scrumdiddlyumptious treats.

Although the event is open to all, if you are coming and would like to RSVP on the Facebook Event page, that will give the bakery a better idea of how many guests to expect.

Please note that the bakery is open to the public until 6pm. So if you’d like to arrive in advance and enjoy the café, you are welcome to as a customer until that time. This event will begin at 6pm.

Colette Book Event in Paris

This Friday, June 24th, I’ll be hosted by Colette, the coolest store in Paris, as part of their Cooklette series. It was one of the first places in Paris that really wowed me when I first walked into it years ago, and I’m excited to be leading an Ice Cream Sundae Party in their Water Bar restaurant.

After the event, from 6:15pm to 7pm, there will be a book signing of the new UK edition of The Perfect Scoop, as well as my other books.

Chocolate Mint Brownies

chocolate mint brownie recipe

I know I’m just starting here, but before you and I go any further, I just have to say one thing about these brownies: They’re pretty insane. I made these brownies about fifteen years ago and found it patiently waiting in the back of my recipe files. And giving it a read-through, it all came flooding back to me and I was struck with the urge to make them again.

One of the things I remember most about these brownies is how massive they were and how heavy the pan was. The pan is so heavy that I can’t imagine most people would be able to heft it with one hand. In fact, I was going to weight the pan just to prove it to you but my baking scale didn’t go that high. Yowza.

Ready for Dessert Notes, Erratum & Tips

I’ve been in the midst of working with the publisher in the United Kingdom for the release of Ready for Dessert and The Perfect Scoop on this side of the Atlantic*. I’ll announce the dates as to when they’ll be available, but I’m thrilled to have them more readily available to European readers. And my shoulders will be happy as well because you have no idea how much work it is lugging boxes of 3-pound books through airports.

Books go through rigorous editing after they’re written, then they’re copyedited, then proofread by the author. Then the book gets punted back to the editor, and back to the author for a final look through. Then it gets forwarded the designer, then to the printer.
