  • April 10: Dallas

      David! Head back to SF in July (I’ll be there!!) I have a friend with a place on Kauai, maybe we make arrangements if you teach me how to make marshmallows!! YUM.

      How I miss Central Market in Austin, I haven’t been in ten years. guess i’ll have to make do with G. Detou which I just discovered yesterday thanks to your blog (which I also just discovered) – bought macadamia nuts (not easy to find in the city) and Fallot mustard.

      Love your take on Paris.

      Nooo! I can’t make any of the Texas classes- not even the spa one! Ironically enough, I’ll actually be in jolie Paris then…

    • March 4, 2008 12:22pm

      Sweeeeet. Thanks for the heads up – we will see you in Houston!

    • March 4, 2008 1:00pm

      UGH! David – when will you ever visit the West Coast? You know we have such a strong indie food scene here. And as a budding baker/indie chef, I have to say, I’m tres disappointed you’re not making rounds to Seattle….at least not as far as we know. Come visit!

      San Diego, David, San Diego. It’s lovely here, really. All sunny and warm and there is the zoo and Sea World. Wouldn’t it be nice to come to San Diego with those lovely marshmallows?!? Come visit America’s finest city, my friend. I’m telling you, i moved away from Texas for a reason.

      TEXAS? TEXAS? Why oh why…..

      Sounds like a blast, i’ll have to read about it!

    • March 4, 2008 6:47pm

      Enjoy your classes David! I’m sure you’ve likely taught at CM’s before but in case you haven’t, I can tell you that my experience as one of their guest cooking teachers was very good. I love that they put up their teachers in interesting and lovely hotels so that besides getting to meet great people and be in their wonderful shops that you feel like a tourist as well. My particular favorite was the hotel in San Antonio: view and balcony over the waterway – just a lovely spot wish I could remember the name right now.

      I won’t say ‘break a leg’ but instead “break an egg’!

      Woo-hoo! Snagged a spot over the weekend for the Austin CM class… can’t wait!

      Keep coming to Texas !!! And how about the recipe for that lovely in the photo.

    • March 5, 2008 12:48am

      I can’t wait to see you in Dallas. YUM!

    • March 5, 2008 12:49am

      Yes, I second the request for the recipe of the beautiful confection in the photo. What is it, praytell? Pretty much anything with chocolate and coconut is awesome, but this looks particularly lovely…

      After reading this, I read your blog on a cooking class you did in Normandy and it sounded really great. I’m semi-retired now but if one day I get a reasonable income I would really love to sign-up for one of your classes :)

      Funny how when you have the income you don’t have the time. Now I have a lot of time but not enough income!

    • March 5, 2008 6:50am

      Siiri: I was just on the West Coast, teaching in the Bay Area and in Seattle last June and July (more here)

      Sorry you missed it! : (

    • March 5, 2008 8:36am

      You gotta do NYC again David, we didn’t get a chance to sample any goodies or sip a cup of coffee!

      What is that thing in the picture?… looks good!

    • March 5, 2008 8:53am

      Mate ! It’s a chocolate lamington !

      I lived in Austin for a year. I spent way too much money at Central Market! It’s a food lovers dream store.

    • March 5, 2008 9:06pm

      Don’t forget to buy a tortilla warmer when you’re in Texas! If they don’t have them at Central Market, mosey on over to a Fiesta and they’ll have a ton.

      I wish I was back in Houston for that. I’ll have to tell my mother to visit and you can schmooze about Bretagne.

    • March 6, 2008 7:38am

      Texas? Why do they get to have all the fun? I know Missouri doesn’t have quite the same ring, but we would love to see you here in St. Louis…

      Heck, I might even drive to Chicago to for your class.

    • March 6, 2008 1:19pm

      Come to Chicago!! You may want to wait for the summer because the winter gives you little incentive, but plan a trip for July and come teach us about Parisian Chocolate Desserts!!

    • March 6, 2008 2:57pm

      Shoot! Unfortunately, I wasn’t part of the hip crowd that follows your blog until about November of last years, shame on me, I know. I’m sorry I missed your time here, but I do know about Theo Chocolate….but hadn’t thought about them in quite some time. I will head over there to buy some treats for my boyfriends father, who is a Polish man obsessed with chocolate. I don’t mind being the enabler if it means sneaking a treat for myself while I’m at it!
      Thanks for the reminder!
      Until then, siiri

      Oh goodness, here?! Austin AND Houston? This is just too much.

    • March 12, 2008 11:23am

      Jealous me.. I’m a Texan girl at heart, but am now residing in NY. Which you’ll swing by again, right? :)

      Woohoo! I’m confirmed for San Antonio, and will be there with my copy of the Perfect Scoop for you to autograph!

      I am coming all the way from Toronto for your class in Ft. Worth! Yea! While I am there, perhaps you can give me some advice on why my (overly?) ambitious plan to make Kouign Aman turned out to be a greasy pile of *&^%!
