From Lucie


Lucie Franc de Ferriere’s cozy bakery in the East Village offers a rotating menu of seasonal cakes decorated with flowers, whose stems would otherwise be too short for a florist’s use. Her flavor combinations and rustic style - olive oil cake with lemon and thyme curd, or earl grey cake with lavender buttercream, to name just a couple - are inspired by memories of growing up in Bordeaux, where she assisted her mother in baking treats for guests of the B&B they ran on the family vineyard.
