Finnegan Lake McGrane

Sporty Chef de Famille

Finnegan was born curious, eager to learn as much as possible about the world (as fast as possible). His passions can be best summed up in a question he asked one morning, “Mommy, I can’t figure something out. I really want to play baseball for the San Francisco Giants when I grow up but also want to be a chef. How can I do both?” His skills in the kitchen will inspire you to get your kids involved in cooking too (and eating everything). His creativity will get you wanting to learn how to play Hotel California on the guitar (like he can). Get to know this avid reader (goes with the curiosity), kayaker and huge fan of any sport with a ball.

Delphine Matilda McGrane

Galette Baker and Butterfly Artist

Born with sweetness inside, Delphine Matilda Ireland McGrane loves all things magical. Her imagination knows no bounds. Some kids do lemonade stands - Delphine started her own little bakery last year, Le Petit Patisserie, and set up a vintage cart at her favorite local café, Cibo, to bring her magic to the masses. She will inspire you, too, to bake (and enjoy, without guilt) healthy French desserts. She also has a flair for dressing like a French girl (by letting go of perfection and mish-mashing items from your closet that make you feel happy).

Little Minou

Sous Chef and Joy Rainmaker

Our newest addition to la famille McGrane, Minou (or Minette when she’s feeling a little ‘je ne sais quoi’) was waiting for us at the San Francisco SPCA when Delphine locked eyes with her. With her signature rouge color, Little Minou will inspire you to see the beauty in everyday moments, from a fresh bloomed flower to baking galettes. She is sweet and loving, insatiably curious, quite the adventurer, and loves to leap into pleasure with all paws - inspiring us all to do the same.
