That “Je Ne Sais Quoi”

There's something so quintessentially French about Clafoutis — and Murat herself — it's a little absurd. A former math teacher who did stints in both France and Tokyo, Murat hails from the riverside French town of Poitier. She named her shop for the traditional rustic french cake made with with cherries that she fondly recalls her grandmother Simone baking during her childhood days in the French countryside. Mémé Simone had a gift for making things simple, elegant, and fun, and Murat carries on her legacy creating events and offering products in exquisitely good taste.
