Albertine’s Third Anniversary Celebration

“Et tout d’un coup le souvenir m’est apparu. Ce goût, c’était celui du petit morceau de madeleine que le dimanche matin à Combray (parce que ce jour-là je ne sortais pas avant l’heure de la messe), quand j’allais lui dire bonjour dans sa chambre, ma tante Léonie m’offrait après l’avoir trempé dans son infusion de thé ou de tilleul.”*

Join us from 3pm til 6pm for a complimentary “Proustian” tasting of madeleines and a glass of cider imported from France.

Festivities will culminate at 6pm with a visit from renowned French baker, Eric Kayser, of Maison Kayser, the international French bakery that arrived to New York in 2012 and has since opened several bakeries and full service cafes across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Guests are invited to attend special birthday cake cutting ceremony with Kayser, where he will also present his new cookbook Maison Kayser’s French Pastry Workshop (Black Dog & Leventhal). The event will conclude with a book signing.
