I wish you all a wonderful New Year and Bonne Année.
My New Year’s Eve celebration will be filled with fresh oysters from Brittany accompanied by slices of fresh rye bread smeared with salted butter, a coupe (or two..) of rosé Champagne, and a nice wedge of caramelized Almond Tart for dessert, a delicious reminder of my days at Chez Panisse. It’s bubbling nicely now in my oven, filling my kitchen with the luxurious smell of caramelized butter and toasty almonds. I can barely wait until it’s cool and ready to eat!
Thanks to all of you for visiting my site and for leaving your comments on the blog. Special thanks to those of you who are the proud owners of one of my dessert books, have visited Paris on a tour with me, or attended one of my classes this past year during one of my cooking tours in the states.
I look forward to you returning here to my site, where I’ll continue to write about my chocolate and gastronomic adventures here in Paris.
See you soon…a bientôt…
