Hello my loyal readers.
I apologize for the delay in posts. There has been a flurry of excitement in the kitchens of très jolie pâtisserie as we prepare for the Lyric Opera House of Chicago’s 29th annual black-tie fundraiser. The theme this year is “Midnight in Paris” – très chic, and oh so très jolie!
I have been invited to have a sweets table at the event. Very exciting! And what, pray tell, will I be featuring? I am glad you asked! Guests in attendance can look forward to sampling an array of my signature petit fours, including vanilla bean eclairs, white truffle and milk chocolate macarons and – the coup d’état – opera cake, bien sûr.
The night promises delicious food and high class entertainment, with a 1920′s-style cabaret! I even hear there will be an Eiffel Tower erected for the evening. I cannot wait to take in the sights and sounds – I promise to post pictures later.
