[Just for enjoyment…]

Well I know I’m already a week behind my schedules: right now I should be thinking about the write-up about my week at the macaron team or even the tons of articles – that are photo-ready – I have to put online.
However today was a really nice day at the laboratoire and I am so excited that I wanted to share with you.

The first thing is that being back in the morning team is so relaxing – everything goes slowlier than in the macaron team and you can take your time to put together the most wonderful entremets ever to be made.
Then, to my surprise, while I was weighing ingredients for a creme au beurre, I saw a familiar silhouette dans mon coin d’oeil – was it Pierre Hermé? At that exact moment I thought I was just really tired but then he arrived, wearing his perfectly white pâtissier outfit.
I was sooo excited. He is the kindest and most down-to-earth person I’ve ever met and needless to say, he is a genius. We all had breakfast together: the usual bread, butter and strawberry jam plus three luscious cakes from Christine Ferber’s pâtisserie.
I also had half a Tango tart (parmesan, raspberry and red pepper) – it was delicious and the parmesan goes so well with the raspberry.
I also learnt that one of the guy I work with has been in New Zealand. And he appears to be the guy who makes the dough, which is the poste I really want to go. So I’m sure we’ll have a good time – talking about doughs and nz!
And to round-up this awesome day, Marc-Antoine (yep the guy who told me I look gross in my outfit, or well that I looked better when I am wearing proper clothes) told me that I am a nice person who is motivated and very kind. I just blushed and said Merci.

So you know, I had to celebrate; and I did. I bought a Plaisir Sucré (one of my favourite pastries ever). And ok, I’m not going to lie to you, I also bought a Tango tart, a Plenitude entremet and a box of Sablés au chocolat et à la fleur de sel.
