Intellectual and amiable cookbook author Dorie Greenspan was the perfect person to pull back the curtain and reveal the unassuming reality of the French kitchen. She's actually done it before, in her last cookbook, Around My French Table, which won a James Beard award and shook up preconceptions about old-guard French cooking. While that book dealt mostly with the savory side of things, Baking Chez Moi returns to her preoccupation cum occupation: dessert. She delights in digging into homespun French food culture, and translating her discoveries for her rapt American audience. And she does so in her utterly unmistakable voice.
