Crossed the Allegheny River to go to Millvale. After I went to Panza’s to pick up Joan’s painting I had reframed, I went to get some brioche and a loaf of crusty bread from Jean-Marc Chatellier’s French Bakery. 412.821.8533 Everything in the bakery is beyond delicious. There are samples on the counter of the melt-in-your-mouth butter cookies and a French shortbread called Breton Cake. There are little fruit tarts, apricot tarts and flaky croissants, even Key Lime pie slices. As I was about to pay for my order, I saw him frosting a cake in the back. I asked the young woman waiting on me if it would be all right to take a picture. She said,” Just take it!” So I did. Magnificent artistry in cake making. And delicious. I have eaten memorable wedding cakes made by him. Once I bought a cake there for Laura’s graduation from Marquette and drove it to Milwaukee WI.
That cake sure looks inviting especially since right now on a diet regimen to drop a million pounds!
Back to food! Yay!!!! Cake IS food, isn’t it???? One of the levels on the Pyramid? One of the groups: fruits, veggies, dairy and cake-with-frosting!?
Why do I want to know what’s wirtten on the chef’s T-Shirt ….starting with “Let’s …. ” ?
I love his cakes, but my favorite is his French shortbread. YUM!
From your description, I am going to have to visit that place.
I bet his shirt says “let them eat cake”
