Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chocolate-hazelnut brownies

    • Astrid5555 on February 18, 2022

      These brownies are quickly put together and perfect for Nutella lovers. I halved the recipe and baked them in an 8x8 pan. They ended up quite flat and also a little greasy, still tasty though.

  • S'mores cookie bars

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      Decadent to the max. I thought it was made better with a sprinkle of sea salt at the end. Also, the graham crackers would be great to scoop it up while warm, because their flavor isn't very strong.

  • White chocolate-pretzel cookies

    • EmilyR on September 24, 2021

      I had to settle for pretzel circles and balls over traditional pretzel shapes. These are good, but don't over bake them or they are rather crunchy - unless you like that.

  • Saucisson pasta salad

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      Be prepared to feed a lot of people. The quantity of leeks seems a bit substantial (I made them all and then only used about 1/2). This has the flavors of an Italian sub sandwich meeting a perfect picnic pasta. The balsamic dressing is also excellent and makes a sizable quantity, too. // I've since made this recipe again and even omitted the leeks and just used some thinly sliced shallots or red onion for similar flavor, which also cut the time substantially. Sometimes I also replace the bread for panko for less carbs with a bit of texture + flavor.

  • Balsamic vinaigrette

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      Great flavor and makes plenty for the salad and extras. Creamy and delicious!

  • Roasted carrot soup

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      Be prepared to have a lot of soup. There was far too much to be contained in my vitamix. It's a nice and healthy soup with a bit of spiced up flavor.

  • Red wine, mushroom, and onion soup

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      I needed a tiny bit of red wine for the roasted carrot soup and then decided to dive into making this one, too. It's a fancied up version of French onion soup, but it works so nicely. The mushrooms give a subtle umami flavor and heartiness.

  • Banana-lavender cornmeal waffles with vanilla mascarpone

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      Wonderful flavors and the mascarpone really sends this over the edge to sublime.

  • Crème fraîche pancakes with lemon-basil coulis and pecan-pretzel crumble

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      This recipe sounded unique and interesting to me. The result is wonderful! The salty sweet mix is something special.

  • Cherry-rosemary crumble

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      We were all surprised how nicely the rosemary and cherries paired together. It's not very sweet, which is nice, too.

  • Crêpes with mushrooms, Gruyère, and herbes de Provence

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      I know mushrooms can be divisive. I'm usually more on the "only when necessary" side, but this sounded promising and it lived up to the expectations. My mushrooms didn't completely cook until dry, so I had to sift them out of their liquid and re-season a bit.

  • Marion's zucchini bread with cheddar and leeks

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      Nice flavor, but needs eaten quickly.

  • Jessalyn sandwich - halloumi with eggplant, cucumbers, and pickled red onions

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      I love halloumi and this sandwich is a great mix of Mediterranean flavors. The eggplant spread is also nice with crackers or whatever you can dip into it.

  • Phyllis salad - apple and cashew spinach salad with curry vinaigrette

    • EmilyR on September 15, 2021

      All around a great and simple salad. The curry vinaigrette is superb and really completes this dish.

    • Lepa on November 05, 2021

      This a great salad- especially popular with the kids, who couldn't resist the sweet curry dressing. We ate this with roasted salmon, which was a great combination.

    • bwhip on October 29, 2021

      Excellent salad. Loved the vinaigrette!

  • Smoked salmon bowl with avocado and waffle-iron hash browns

    • bwhip on February 11, 2022

      These were great! Who knew that a waffle iron could produce such tasty, crispy hash browns? Not me! They turned out excellent, and were quite easy to make. Combination of the salad with the crispy potatoes and smoked salmon was quite delightful. And the balsamic dressing recipe was nice too. We’ll have this again for sure.

  • Claudia sandwich - balsamic mushrooms with Calabrian chile-feta spread, basil pesto, and arugula

    • bwhip on February 12, 2022

      Delicious and interesting sandwich, we enjoyed this very much. Pretty easy to put together. I think the feta spread quantity could be reduced by half and still be plenty.

  • Maman's nutty chocolate chip cookies

    • bwhip on October 29, 2021

      This are exceptional. One of my favorite cookies ever. I used Ghirardelli 70% chocolate that I chopped into large chunks. I chickened out and mixed the dough in the more traditional sequence, as it seemed weird to add the eggs last - but maybe next time I’ll do it their way and see how it changes the results.

  • Ashleigh's carrot cake with cream cheese frosting

    • BrendaD1962 on September 30, 2021

      Wonderful! The cake is moist and delicious and the brown sugar-cream cheese frosting puts it over the top. It took about 45 minutes to bake, vs. the 30-35 minutes suggested in the recipe. I also added the chopped walnuts and raisins which were optional. Delicious, would definitely make again.

Publishers Text

Welcome to Maman. Maman ("mother" in French) was created to fill a void that fiancés Elisa Marshall and Benjamin Sormonte saw in the café scene--a beautiful, homey place where you could savor a delicious, freshly baked cookie or quiche and gather with friends for a lively brunch as if in your own living room.

In their debut cookbook, the owners of this elegant and charming New York City-based collection of cafés share the recipes of some of their bestselling baked goods and dishes alongside brand new ones. This collection of 100 recipes spans breakfast to dessert and everything in between, all united by the sense of family-inspired tradition. Handed down through generations, this is the food that makes you feel at home while also appealing to modern tastes and design aesthetics. The spirit of the café is reflected in recipes like Banana Lavander Waffles with Vanilla Mascarpone, Roasted Delicata Squash, Hazelnut and Taleggio Focaccia Tartine, and the made-famous-by-Oprah Nutty Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Blending the allure of New York City with beloved French fare and café culture, The Maman Cookbook encourages the Francophile in you to create delicious café favorites and special moments in your own home.
