Have you ever met someone and wondered what the inside of their brain looked like? I certainly have. I can’t help but imagine what’s going on under some peoples chapeau. Some are clean and smooth, white all around, impeccably organized and orchestrated. I picture filing cabinets and shelves. All of this reflecting said persons personality. Then I see my own, much like my room. Filled with oddities and stacks of books and papers. Things lying about, and labyrinths that lead to nowhere. All those little oddities help contribute to things I make, and reflect heavily in my pastry and chocolate designs. Below is an oddity of nature, my latest chocolate musing. A pine cone.
