"In this terrifically lively account chockfull of elegant, Old World recipes, Bullock-Prado, a former Hollywood film developer and sister to actress Sandra Bullock, recounts the joys and heartbreaks of running her own patisserie in Montpelier, Vt. Having fled the "soul-sucking" routine in Los Angeles with her husband, Ray, for the simpler pleasures of a small town near the Green Mountains, the author opened her own bake shop, Gesine Confectionary, in 2004... In subtly compelling prose, the master baker conveys her touching sense of responsibility for the "emotional needs of [her] patrons," and offers mouthwatering recipes."—Publishers Weekly
