Learning from the Master…

It was a rare opportunity that I was able to spend two full days with the most brilliant pastry chef of my lifetime…


Recognize him from his profile ?


No? How about this front view shot?


Still do not recognize him? The clue is in the initials of his chef's jacket or his most famous creation shown below :



More later… I just got back and there is a ton of pictures to sift through. And as usual when I go on this "business" trips I end up in a sugar coma…

  6. Wow Veronica, you're very fast in posting! I just posted a little bit about the class in my blog last night. It was nice to finally meet you in person after following your blog all this time, what a nice surprise. I'm glad to be able to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity together with you. Keep in touch and hope to see you again…

  7. By coincidence I made a large batch of rose macarons last night.
    Thick shell and stupid feet. Too sweet even with raspberries…into the can they went.
