Mélodie Asseraf, the queen of sweets

1899541 544032165695030 44493592 O

Mélodie Asseraf is a modern-day pastry chef who dusts off the universe of sweets with her terrific girly boudoir in Paris.

Her pedigree? She started out with Pierre Hermé and is a native New-Yorker. So it’s not surprising that this talented gal excels in the art of pop cakes (brownie lollipops), mini-donuts and cookies.

a restaurant just like in NYC

The restaurant Beaucoup reminds me think of New-York, by its style and its spirit. It’s an ideal place to come have a drink with the gals or an after-work on Friday night.

my latest girly item

Mélodie Asseraf latest crush, a pink bag

A pretty pink bag that matches my shop, picked up in a little boutique on avenue Victor Hugo by a girlfriend. It’s a super shopping spot.

Never without my homemade granola

In the morning, I never leave the house without my cell phone and a small packet of home-made granola.

For about 500g of Granola

- 200g of oat flakes

- 120g of almond slivers

- 100g of whole walnuts

- 100g of honey

- 80g of brown sugar

- 90g of melted butter

For those who like them, it is also possible to add dehydrated cranberries, then just mix up all the ingredients and bake 20mn at 180°
