Just try to walk by Tartine without stepping inside. I dare you. Easily, in my estimation, the best bakery in the Bay Area, the smell of their freshly baked delicious treats will seduce you. It’s like a little corner shop of sirens. Luscious, flaky, fruit-filled, chocolate-dipped, crunchy, nutty, tender-baked heaven.

So you had better believe that when I found out they were going to have a party to launch their gorgeous new cookbook–Sweet and Savory Pastries, Tarts, Pies, Cakes Croissants, Cookies and Confections by Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson–I made sure to clear my datebook.

For all you fans out there, tonight, yes tonight, Chronicle Books, Tartine Bakery, and M.A.C. Modern Appealing Clothing will be gettin down and um, tasty.

Thursday November 16th from 6-9pm

M.A.C. Modern Appealing Clothing
