Mélanger is Julia. A baking enthusiast.
For me there are very few things more rewarding in life than baking. For a number of years I have been the ‘resident’ baker of the family. Each birthday I will religiously present an ensemble of flour, sugar and eggs in many forms. That has extended to cookie and cake treats during the holidays. When entertaining, a brunch will inevitably include home baked bread, and a lunch or dinner will end with a baked dessert or pastry. I will use every opportunity to bake.
Having been fortunate to live in various countries around the world (and traveled to many more), I have also been inspired by the subtlety of regional differences in baking. I am fascinated of the origin of many baked goods and how a seemingly similar set of ingredients can produce such different outcomes. This makes baking for me an intriguing process.
Mélanger is a publication about this passion shared by many. The passion of baking. My journey carries me through many discoveries of home comforts and inspired travel… through holidays, celebrations, entertaining, design inspiration, new destinations or a re-discovery of familiar ones.
Mélanger captures how baking guides the mix that is my life.
