Cook the Perfect...Madeleines with Michael Vanheste

There can be no other cake to rival it for literary pedigree. As part of our Cook the Perfect series, we focus on the Madeleine, the little cake made famous by Marcel Proust in his novel ‘In Search of Lost Time’. Jenni talks to Michael VanHeste from Betty's Cookery School in Harrogate and to Barbara Lebrun, Lecturer in French Studies at University of Manchester.
