  • YOU GUYS!!! Our friends @rattiganjael and @daniel.rattigan are rocking the chocolate food scene, yet again. They just moved their fantastic @frenchbroadchocolates to a new larger, even lovelier space, smack dab in the middle of downtown. We stopped in this evening for the soft opening, to see the space and sample offerings both familiar (coconut brownies that dreams are made of!) and new (ice cream! toffee! pretzel caramels!). There's even an entire separate boutique room called

  • When @bakerhands put out a call two days ago asking for a few hours of baking help today, I pounced at the chance to spend some quality time with such a warm, wise lady. When I found out @rorris and @jenathan had offered the same thing, the deal became even sweeter. The four of us gathered at Smoke Signals Bakery in Marshall today to chat, chew, and chop. Three cheers for wonderful people, delicious food, and fostering community. Hip, hip, freaking HOORAY!!! What a stellar day. *I was in charge of apple pie filling prep today.

A Friend In Pie: Beatrice Peltre

Béatrice Peltre is adorable. I’ll begin this post on that simple fact. From her clothes to her aprons to her photo props, the woman is the very picture of uncompromising, impeccable adorability (Is that a word? It is now).

When she generously agreed to provide me with a recipe for A Year of Pies, I was over the moon. THE Béatrice Peltre, she of the much-lauded, much-loved La Tartine Gourmande, in my little pie book?! Holy wow! Her spring-centric recipe for Watercress, Appenzeller Cheese and Smoked Salmon Tart is one you’ll prize for many, many moons.

If you aren’t familiar with Béa’s work, you must. go. now to her gorgeous blog. Full of exquisite, evocative images and tempting, gluten-free recipes, it’s no small wonder that La Tartine Gourmade garners so much praise and wins so many awards and “Best Of” categories. Béa’s book of the same name is a serious beauty, too. An all-around accomplished blogger, author, photographer, and food stylist, this woman knows what she’s doing, on so very many levels.

Thank you, Béa, for your contribution to the book. Having your voice and recipe present is such a treasure!
