I'm Back

Whoo - talk about an extended hiatus ... I have been working on my new venture and have not been able to muster the energy to blog. A placeholder for my new website is here. More will be coming there soon.

In the meantime, I have been doing a lot of experimenting with new dishes and doing a lot of pastry work. I am currently in love with pastry and am having a lot of fun trying new things out.

This here is a rhubarb galette. I put Meyer lemon zest (thanks Vicki!) in the crust and into the rhubarb. The rhubarb was macerated in turbinado sugar (crunchy brown sugar) and then was folded into a buttery pate brisee.

I looooove rhubarb. So happy I can find it in the market right now. :-)

Thanks for the good wishes.

You'd make us all feel a little less untalented if you occasionally listed "Taco Bell" or "Hot Pockets, Green Giant Cheese & Peas, and Little Debbie Zebra Cakes," as one of your daily entries.
