Signing at Omnivore Books in San Francisco, September 21st from 6-7

Tues. Sept. 21 • My Life from Scratch: A Sweet Journey of Starting Over, One Cake at a Time • Gesine Bullock-Prado • 6-7 p.m.

Bullock-Prado recounts the joys and heartbreaks of running her own patisserie in Montpelier, Vermont. Having fled the soul-sucking routine in Los Angeles with her husband, Ray, for the simpler pleasures of a small town near the Green Mountains, the author opened her own bake shop, Gesine Confectionary, in 2004, mostly on the fame of the macaroons she refashioned from her German mother's favorite almond treat.
