Et Voila!: A Simple French Baking Love Story – Manon Lagrève 

Description: The Great British Bakeoff alumni and winner of the NYE 2023 special, Manon Lagrève, shares over 80 French classics – simplified or with a twist – for the modern baker.

In her debut cookbook, Et Voila!, Manon proves that elegant French baking does not have to be difficult or pretentious to make. With just a few basic pieces of baking equipment and Manon’s secret short-cuts, you too can master the French pastries and desserts of your dreams. This is a collection of her favourite family recipes, many of which were handed down by her mother and grandmothers, and are perfect for sharing with the people you love.

Whether you want to perfect the classics such as brioche, éclairs and macarons or whip up a galette or a clafoutis after a mid-week meal, there’s something for every baker and palate. French baking can be chic and simple, and whatever your baking skill, Manon will show you how.
