See you all in December

How time flies!

I recall writing my last entry in August. Shortly after, I received this:

and everything else between then and now is a great big blur.

The past year was one of creation, learning and decadence. Take the Bostini Cream Pie below that weighs in at more than a thousand calories a serving.

If it weren't for this blog, I probably would never have discovered bostock unless I suddenly found myself with spare money, time and a ticket to France. Bostock is basically stale brioche slathered with frangipane and encrusted with sliced almonds that is then toasted. My next blog entry will delve into brioche.

Yes, there will be more blog entries, but I will defer until December. Right now, there is a pile of work and studying ahead of me. Speaking of work - I find it hard to use the word especially since I am so enthused at all that I am doing. My professors are all extremely passionate about teaching, and everything is just so interesting. Excuse me for gushing.

Anyhow, please be back in December. There will be brioche. There will be another bûche de Noël (please see my bûches from the last two Christmases). Thank you for everyone who still keeps dropping by this little blog and for all your emails asking when I will write again.
