Last week at Le Cordon Bleu Paris

This is the last week of class at Le Cordon Bleu so between spending time in class and with friends, I haven’t left much time for blogging! Fear not, here are some pictures to catch you up to speed:

Pithiviers

Also known as “Three Kings Cake”, this was one of my favorite “pretty feuilletage” to make. Glossy, flaky, golden goodness…I had to post two pics:

I wish I had taken a better picture, but here it is:

Mogador

Making marzipan roses in class is like therapy after spending an hour rushing to whisk, fold, bake and clean. It also makes me realize I should look at more roses if I want to make my marzipan ones more realistic, versus copying the Chefs since all their roses look different.

Bûche Pistache-Chocolat

I have to learn to trick myself in to liking projects, even if they aren’t tasty in demo or have ugly names like “pistachio log.” The hulk green was a big turn-off as well, despite the many times I repeated the mantra, “pretend it’s a chocolate matcha cake, Trac” in my head.

  1. Tracy, I’m going to call you “MIDAS”… Everything you touch or make, ex: The Three Kings, are GOLDEN!!! Every single one looks beautiful and delicous….
