Welcome to Maman. Maman ("mother" in French) was created to fill a void that fiancés Elisa and Benjamin saw in the café scene--a beautiful, homey place where you could savor a delicious, freshly-baked cookie or quiche, and also gather with friends for a lively brunch as if in your own living room.
In their debut cookbook, the owners of this elegant and charming collection of cafés share the recipes of some of their bestselling baked goods and dishes alongside brand new ones. This collection of 100 recipes spans from breakfast to dessert and everything in between, all united by the sense of family-inspired tradition. Handed down through generations, this is the food that makes you feel at home while also appealing to modern tastes and design aesthetics. The spirit of the café is reflected in recipes like Banana Lavender Waffles with Vanilla Mascarpone, Roasted Delicata Squash, Hazelnut and Taleggio Focaccia Tartine, and the made-famous-by-Oprah Nutty Chocolate Chip Cookie.
This book delivers the appeal of beloved French fare and café culture with its recipes and design. Maman: The Cookbook encourages the Francophile in you to create delicious café favourites and special moments in your own home.
