Hazelnut Mousse with Caramelized Hazelnuts

Read Article →

Caramel and nuts (along with warm spices) are the flavours of fall and winter to me. Warm, comforting, earthy, and cozy flavours that evoke thoughts of thick sweaters, scarves, and steaming mugs of tea. The berries that packed a punch of flavour and brightness have come and gone with the warm, sunny days and nuts, caramel, apples, pears, and chocolate take a front seat to comfort you on a rainy afternoon. Hazelnuts appear fairly often on the blog in the colder months because they're one of my favourite flavours, no chocolate needed.

Vanilla Crème Brûlée Macarons

Read Article →

I see a lot of "fusion" baked goods around the internet. You know, the "cheesecake brownie loaf" and the "cookie cupcake" and the "pie ice cream milkshake". Sometimes, they go too far and the combos are just a bit ridiculous. I prefer to keep my brownies as brownies, my cookies as cookies, and my cheesecakes as non-existent because I don't like cheesecake.

But trust me when I say that these crème brûlée macarons are the best fusion dessert ever.

Have you guys seen the Netflix show Chef's Table? If the answer is no, you need to fix that right now. Because it is so good. It's basically a bunch of mini-documentaries of some of the best chefs in the world and their restaurants, lives, philosophies on food, etc.

As someone who works in the food industry, I find chefs and line cooks to be fascinating. Pastry cooks and line cooks are two very different people that do two very different jobs, so their world of blistering hot kitchens and orders coming in every minute and expediting food is new and thrilling and scary. I know that the world of kitchens is completely different to what the customers experience, so I love seeing their behind-the-scenes.

The last ice cream post of 2015! Unless I decide to make a winter ice cream, which may happen… Ice cream is best enjoyed in the summer, fall, winter, spring, morning, afternoon, evening, alone, with friends, and every time in between. There is no bad time for ice cream.
