Recipe by the Book: Pain de Fruits for Lorna Mott Comes Home

In her Paris apartment situated above Pâtisserie Friandise, Lorna Mott Dumas can smell the warm aromas of bread baking day and night—which is why we’re pairing Diane Johnson’s new novel with a recipe for a loaf of Pain de Fruits (French fruit bread) from legendary chef and cookbook author James Beard.

Settle in with a piping café au lait and a beautiful slice of nutty, sweet bread, and enjoy this charming story of manners, morals, (ex)marriages, and motherhood from the bestselling author of Le Divorce and Le Mariage.
