About Miss Pâtisserie

Hi! I'm Lisa, the author of this blog. Thank you for visiting! 

I've always enjoyed baking, ever since I learned to make chocolate-chip cookies from scratch at age seven. Then there was my cake-decorating class in junior high school and next delving into the world of Martha Stewart cookbooks. I studied Comparative Literature at Smith College and after graduating followed in the footsteps of Julia Child. I departed for France to study
pâtisserie at Le Cordon Bleu, where I completed a 9-month certificate program. This experience was total immersion into the fabulous world of French pâtisserie in Paris. 

My mission for this blog is simple: to share the joy of baking classic French pastries and to inspire a feeling of joie de vivre and la vie en rose that's found in almost every Parisian boulangerie and pâtisserie shop.  I hope that my blog posts will bring about happiness through sweet treats. :)

May this blog inspire many memorable dessert experiences and special occasions!
