Yesterday my brother in law dropped in on his way somewhere, and I'd just popped Madeleines in the oven to bake. It was nearly 3:30 so, imagine this, we had tea and warm Madeleines. He was so smitten that after he left I thought "The perfect present! I'll just zip over to the ---- at the mall and get him a Madeleine plaque." It did not even occur to me they wouldn't have them. They didn't, and while I was going through what they did have, I did not see a single item of baking wear without a coating, presumably nonstick. Does this mean people needing to replace things like plain steel cookie sheets or loaf pans or, God forbid,darioles, need to snag things when they see them because they are being phased out as Mauviel's heavy tin lined copper was? Sigh.
