in our highly anticipated cookbook, we share the recipes for some of our bestselling baked goods and savory dishes, alongside brand-new ones - with a common thread of warmth and family-inspired tradition tying them all together. handed down through generations, this is food that makes you feel at home. the rustic-chic charm of our cafés saturates every page and is reflected in recipes like banana-lavender cornmeal waffles with vanilla mascarpone, our number one selling “tawni salad” with farro, sweet potatoes, and feta, and the made-famous-by-oprah, nutty chocolate chip cookie.
throughout the chapters, you’ll also find elisa’s tips and step-by-step advice on everything from prep to presentation, along with table décor and entertaining ideas. we’ve also shared some of most beloved coffee and tea drinks and a few party-perfect cocktails.
blending the allure of new york city with beloved french café culture, the maman cookbook encourages the francophile in you to create sweet and savory homemade favorites and special moments in your own kitchen. when cooking and baking through the book, don’t be afraid to get a little messy, add your own twist, or jot down notes on the page—just like your maman used to do. we hope our cookbook brings you delicious, beautiful memories in your kitchen and home.
