We thank all of you for your patience and look forward to seeing you soon.
Check out the website for some changes.
We’ve had a lot of questions over the past months and I’m embarrassed to say we weren’t the best communicators. Perhaps it’s because….we just were not sure what the answer was.
The Nut Roll enthusiasts take the cake for most persistent and frequent queries during our time off.
Macarons are a close second.
Over 30 years ago when I begged Jean-Marc to just try to make some nut rolls for our first Thanksgiving, we had no idea how popular they’d become. I think we made only 20 the first year! Pittsburgh today isn’t the Pittsburgh we started our bakery in all those years ago. The biggest question people asked is “why are you in Millvale? “ They said “you should be in Shady Side”. Jean-Marc said “why? You are here aren’t you?” Still, we had to find a way to be part of the community but also introduce them to French pastries. Back then if there was a criticism it’s was we were too French. Now it would be that we aren’t French enough. We are just us. Jean-Marc’s (and Sandy’s) in Millvale. It’s always good to just be yourself.
We hope to be able to be part of yet another holiday season with you.
And however more beyond that…
