UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, THE AUTHOR HAS HAD TO CANCEL THIS EVENT.
James Beard Award-winning writer Aleksandra Crapanzano joins the Hickory Stick to sign copies of her new cookbook, GÂTEAU, on Saturday December 10th, at 3:00 PM.
In GÂTEAU, Aleksandra shares the secrets of the cakes Parisians bake at home, from the simplest yogurt cakes to a deceptively easy Bûche Noël, from yuzu madeleines to boozy flourless chocolate confections. Practical, simple, and filled with over 100 rigorously rested recipes and charming illustrations, GÂTEAU celebrates laidback, everyday decadence, the Parisian way.
Aleksandra Crapanzano is the dessert columnist for The Wall Street Journal and author of THE LONDON COOKBOOK and EAT. COOK. LA. Her work has been widely anthologized, most notably in BEST AMERICAN FOOD WRITING. She has been a frequent contributor to Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Food52, Saveur, Town & Country, Elle, The Daily Beast, Departures, Travel Leisure, and The New York Times Magazine. She has years of experience in the film world, consults in the food space, and serves on several boards with a focus on sustainability. Aleksandra grew up in New York and Paris, received her BA from Harvard and her MFA from NYU, where she has also taught writing. She is married to the writer John Burnham Schwartz, and they live in New York with their son, Garrick, and Bouvier des Flandres, Griffin.
