I would like to share some photos from the video we shot about moustache pies yesterday. ( the video will be posted shorty) In the meantime enjoy our silly pies filled with blueberry basil compote and strawberry honey-balsamic. These pies are great, easy, and perfect party snacks. Some other flavour pairings that I would try out are spiced pecan, elderflower peach and maybe orange blossom berry.

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.

This weekend Lou and I did a road trip to Montreal to watch the Canadians play the Penguins, and to have a little getaway from Ottawa. The city is such a fun vibrant place to see, and there’s inspiration on every corner. I really took to a little bakery that had people lining up for moustache breads in support of movember. It was such a simple yet great idea that I thought I’d better bake something with a moustache. Here’s a picture of my moustache brownies.
