Maybe she was always destined to live here though, her favorite color is black, after all.
Her creative process is not so different from ours at the PRseries studio. While we’re taking samples of ideas and trying to envision how to marry the classics with the modern, Tanya is doing the same with an array of flavors and time-honored recipes.
Her debut shop was named after the first words her husband ever said to her, “Bisous, ciao,” and is situated in the LES (and recently in the West Village) for your macaroon fix.
We sat down with our local pastry girl for extra behind the counter info for all you foodies and Francophiles hoping to find your next fix:
