Newly Released “French Brunch at Home” Inspires Bakers of All Abilities to Prepare Classic French Treats in the Comfort of Their Own Kitchens

“French Brunch at Home,” from Le Petit Croissant, is an exquisite full-color cookbook written by owner / author Leah Johnson. Off-set printed on matte coated paper, this beautifully photographed volume of tried-and-true recipes inspires bakers of all abilities – and altitudes – to prepare more than 30 classic French treats.

Says Leah: “”French Brunch at Home” features my time-tested recipes for delicious croissants, morning buns, pain au chocolat, scones, brioche, quiche, granola, jams and more. Adjustments for high altitude bakers are included, plus baker’s tips, lovely photography, and fascinating histories. I’ve also included make-ahead instructions so that anyone can prepare a wonderful holiday breakfast for the family in advance. It makes a great gift.”

Leah continues: “My goal in writing this book was to create a beautiful cookbook that would inspire bakers of all levels, and all altitudes, to make classic French brunch recipes in the comfort of their own kitchens. In the process, it is my hope that they learn not only that they can actually do this, but also that hand-rolled croissants taste significantly better than those from the grocery store.”

“French Brunch at Home” (#FrenchBrunchAtHome) is available just in time for holiday gift-giving. Priced at under $25.00, its step-by-step recipes, illustrative how-to photos, make-ahead tips and more will have readers whipping up scrumptious French-style brunches to celebrate the holidays, special occasions or just the weekend.

“French Brunch at Home” is sure to be welcomed by cookbook aficionados, foodies, oven-averse Francophiles who are content to curl up with a volume that evokes beloved French classics, and avid bakers who thought living at high altitude meant they had to shelve their favorite pastry recipes.

Leah is also announcing a new Facebook group, “Baking 911: Tips, Fails, High Altitude Tricks.” Members can ask or answer questions or even share their kitchen “fails” for insight or commiseration. After all, says Leah, “What’s brunch at home without a few guests, some shared laughs and interesting conversation?”

“French Brunch at Home” retails for $24.95 and is available for purchase on and
