The big day has finally arrived. “Teatime in Paris: A Walk Through Easy French Pâtisserie Recipes” is now released in the UK!

It’s available in Waterstones and independent bookshops, and online stores such as The Book Depository and Amazon (who released it slightly earlier than planned, and in the US they’ve pushed release forward to 30 May). All this means that reviews are now open!

I’m thrilled to see lovely reviews come in today! A huge thank you to Jacqueline Brown of French Village Diaries and Janice Pattie of Farmersgirl Kitchen, who have both posted about making the double chocolate tartlets from the book and mentioned what they found inside.

I would love to see your photos of recipes from the book. Just tag me and use the #TeatimeinParis hashtag when you send me photos of your French baking creations on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. (links top of this page).
As my sweetest cheeky Mum says, it always tastes better when you share!


I’m really looking forward to seeing old and new friends at the special French Afternoon Tea book signing event in Paris on 20 May. If you’re in Paris, why not treat yourself or a friend – or spoil your Mum for Mother’s Day – for a relaxed afternoon of tasting teatime pastries, fancy teas (or whatever takes your fancy) in one of Paris’s most trendy hidden bistro-cafés at the Treize Bakery. Ticket includes your copy of the book, too! Extra macarons and baking talk guaranteed …

Tickets are going like Parisian hot cakes so please do book your place now – more details are here.

In the meantime, don’t forget to check out the website for the latest recipes (including the speciality rubric for egg yolk recipes) and food adventures around Paris – I’m continuing to taste delicious pastries for you and mention my favourite tearooms in the city, as well as restaurants and museums.  Plus I’ll post a slideshow of my pics of Paris in the Spring for Mother’s Day.
So that you don’t miss them, don’t forget to sign up to receive the latest blog posts by email ->

The sun has come out today!
A bientôt and hugs from Paris.

      Thank you, Liz. I’m wondering why the tartlets are getting all the immediate attention and thinking everyone is in need of sunshine right now and a double dose of chocolate, perhaps?!
