Breakfast, Lunch, Tea

Cook book isn't the right word for this excellent read.  As much art book as anything else, I recommend a look at this one!  (I was able to find it at the library.)  It's the story of Rose Carrarini and her Rose Bakery in Paris. 


I love the straight-forward approach of the book, with large color photos.  Nothing fussy, understated beauty.  Two of my tea friends here in town fell for the book at first sight.  ;-)


There are six scone recipes.  I'm eager to try the pistachio cake with rose water.  The most interesting item must be the broccoli cake, with whole stalks of broccoli in it! 


Do you know this book?  What's your opinion?

I have this book! I think I always considered more of a picture book than a cookbook. I will have to take a closer look at it now!

Haven't seen this one. Sounds fascinating. I love picture books with recipes, especially from Paris.

We've long been inspired by urban art and have finally created a collection that pays homage to this secret addiction of ours!
