Book Description

14 Feb 2013
Take a gourmet American sweet treat, cross it with French chic and what do you get? Le Cookie! This perfect little baking book is full of recipes with 'je ne sais quoi'. French pastry chef Mickael Benichou is based in New York, where he designs cool and quirky cookies for Moon Street, sold in luxury stores throughout Paris, New York and the UK. In this must-have collection, he shares more than 25 recipes for cookies like Praline Chic, Rebel Rose and Le Cookie, as well as deliciously different macarons, whoopie pies, brownies and cupcakes. Ideas include Flower Power Macarons, Cherry Je T'Aime Cupcakes, Chocolate and Salted Caramel Whoopie Pies and White Chocolate and Olive Oil Brownies. Loved by the fashionista, every Moon Street treat is irresistible and as pretty as a postcard - from Paris or New York - and now you can create your own at home.

Product Description

Review

"From cupcakes to whoopie pies, we've all gone crazy for cutsie baking in the last few years. In certain circles, you are nobody if you can't make your own macarons. For Mickael Benichou and Benoit Castel of Moon Street Patisserie, New York, sweet treats are a serious business. Le Cookie showcases some of their signature recipes, from Flower Power Macarons to Bijoux Blondies. A great Mother's day gift - especially with an accompanying batch of Benichou's Orange Crush Cookies." --Psychologies magazine - March 2013

"If there were to be a dessert Olympics the two nations that would surely have the competition licked would be France and the good ole' US of A. One, the purveyors of Parisian patisserie, pretty pastel macaroons and delicate mille-feuille, the other, home of rich creamy cheesecake and pioneers of the brownie, red velvet and cupcake trends. Keen bakers (and tasters) who find it rather difficult to decide between these two great sugar-laden nations need agonise no more, as Le Cookie brings together the experimental fun factor of the Big Apple with the classic taste and delicacy of Paris's most exquisitely tempting sweet treats." --Junior magazine - February 2013

Le Cookie brings together the experimental fun factor of the Big Apple with the classic taste and delicacy of Paris s most exquisitely tempting sweet treats [...] The brains behind luxury cookie brand Moon Street do not disappoint with their collection of sophisticated biscuits. --Junior - 2013

Our great intentions went by the wayside when we happened upon this gorgeous little cookie book --VIP magazine - 2013

About the Author

Ten years ago, young French banker Mickael Benichou went to New York to learn English. It was there that he acquired a love for homemade cookies. Later, when he met top pastry chef, Benoit Castel, they decided to create a brand that excelled in fusing traditional American treats with French style, and Moon Street pâtisserie was born. Benoit has worked as a pastry chef for some of the best restaurants and department stores in the world, and his flair for pastry is second-to-none. With Mickael, they make mouthwatering cookies that are stocked in high-end stores in the UK, US, France and more. This is their first book together. Visit their website at www.moonstreet.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Catches the eye 21 Mar 2013
By I. Darren TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Here is a small little book that underlines the oft-quoted mantra of KISS (keep is simple and sweet). Add a smattering of French élan to an already American favourite and you have Le Cookie.

Sometimes things come out of unplanned circumstances. The author, then a banker living in France, went to New York to learn English. He became fond of American cookies, met a top pastry chef and some time later Moon Street pātisserie was born from their union. This is a small book showcasing a few of their delights, with recipes that you can (and should) make at home.

Ah sure, you may say, cookies are cookies and maybe with a cursory glance you are right, yet Moon Street has managed to carve a niche in a fairly competitive marketplace. Through this book you get to lift the curtain a little on Moon Street's success, learn a bit about what they are doing and how they are doing it. Engaging, brief text and absolutely scrumptious photography draws you in. Yet you can be forgiven for thinking have they left something out as each recipe seems very basic, so normal, so unassuming... but good ingredients and a good recipe can lead to a good product. No ultra-secret sauce is necessary.

The recipes are well-written, contain a lot of hand-holding and advice in relatively few words. There are also some rather interesting surprises with the recipes once you get past the perfectly good and honest basic cookies. A couple had this reviewer scratching his head and wondering why you might want a fried banana and peanut butter sandwich pie, but if something like this was good enough for Elvis...

A couple had this reviewer scratching his head and wondering why you might want a fried banana and peanut butter sandwich pie, but if something like this was good enough for Elvis... In any case, regardless of whether you are sold on that particular recipe or not, it can showcase the dexterity and versatility and it does look good but this reviewer has not yet plucked up enough courage to try it...

There are surprisingly many recipes in this book that managed to catch this reviewer's eye, and there are not exactly a shortage of cookie, biscuit and pie recipes available either. A little book like this might be overlooked in favour of some gigantic mega-tome in a bookstore, particularly if the Moon Street brand is unknown to you, yet it could be one of those things that you should miss at your own risk. It is certainly worthy of closer consideration.
