The Great British Bakeoff alumni and winner of the NYE 2023 special, Manon Lagreve, shares over 80 French classics - simplified or with a twist - for the modern baker.
In her debut cookbook, Et Voila!, Manon proves that elegant French baking does not have to be difficult or pretentious to make. With just a few basic pieces of baking equipment and Manon's secret short-cuts, you too can master the French pastries and desserts of your dreams. This is a collection of her favourite family recipes, many of which were handed down by her mother and grandmothers, and are perfect for sharing with the people you love.
Whether you want to perfect the classics such as brioche, eclairs and macarons or whip up a galette or a clafoutis after a mid-week meal, there's something for every baker and palate. French baking can be chic and simple, and whatever your baking skill, Manon will show you how.
Raised in a small village in Brittany, Manon Lagreve grew up on a farm, where food was celebrated as the core of family life. Having spent time travelling and living in London, in 2016 Manon's passion for cooking led her to create her own lifestyle blog, Manon's Little Kitchen, which has a focus on achievable, positive and simplistic baking for all abilities, all influenced by her French heritage and her travels.
In 2018 Manon entered The Great British Bake Off, reaching the Quarter Final. Since then, she has been sharing her creations online and now has over 160k followers on Instagram and over 118k followers on TikTok.
