In the past six months I’ve really discovered quite a bit about pastry and tried to focus on my personal style, and what I’d like to try and achieve every time I go into the kitchen. It’s really helpful to know that when I’m finished a project, I should be looking at something relatively modern and extremely feminine. That’s my style. I wish that I could be content with making something extremely structured and minimalistic, but I can’t bring myself to ignore colour and curves. To me this is beautiful pastry, so below you’ll find this weeks bakes. A lemon tart, filled with crème d’amandes, and topped with a macaron crunch. As well as dark hazelnut bonbons.

Now that I have a little more free time from work, I can begin to enjoy life’s little pleasures like tea cups, rainy days, and bonbons. After all this year has been, its nice to stop, look around the kitchen and think hmmmm I feel like making something delectable today. Which is exactly what happened. On this rainy day the kitchen counter consisted of a loaf of bread, a bunch of bananas and some bourbon. Since I didn’t feel adventurous enough to make a bread truffle, I settled for a banana bourbon bonbon. Paired with organic 72% dark, this chocolate is a unique treat. Enjoy!
