Sarah is a young woman who has been handed down the art of cooking. As the granddaughter of a baker, she has been around the fine smells of freshly baked wheat and butter since she was very young.
She turned her grandfather's gift into a passionate adventure of her own. She has worked on the finesse of French pastry and you will be able to taste specialties such as madeleines, financiers...!
These lovely delicacies are a pure delight for the eyes as well as for the taste. Both fluffy and light, these treats will satisfy even the least greedy.
Financiers are richer than their more cake-like cousins madeleines.
Financiers are also more moist due to the higher content of butter, whilst madeleines are more dry with much more wheat flour and only a couple of eggs.
Unlike financiers, madeleines also use baking powder. Perhaps the biggest difference is their shape. French madeleines are traditionally baked in scallop shaped moulds or tins.
