Ten years ago, young French banker Mickael Benichou went to New York to learn English. It was there that he acquired a love for homemade cookies. Later, when he met top pastry chef, Benoit Castel, they decided to create a brand that excelled in fusing traditional American treats with French style, and Moon Street patisserie was born. Benoit has worked as a pastry chef for some of the best restaurants and department stores in the world, and his flair for pastry is second-to-none. With Mickael, they make mouthwatering cookies that are stocked in high-end stores in the UK, US, France and more. This is their first book together. Visit their website at www.moonstreet.com
