I've been in Paris for almost a month now and have yet to bake anything, which has made me feel like it isn't really "home" yet. Today that changed. I thought to myself "what would I make if Kim [Conte] came to visit?" and I knew it had to be something from David Lebovitz's The Sweet Life in Paris.
|I refuse to admit how long it took me to translate my ingredients to French.|
Kim once said that she loves how I don't fret or panic in situations like these and I felt so touched, I never forgot it. Today, remembering that made me feel like Kim was in the kitchen with me, encouraging me to make it through this ridiculous challenge.
|This is when I started talking to my egg whites. In bad French. "Mes oeufs! Vas-y!"|
And the results? Delicious.
|The Sweet Life in Paris: chocolate cake and salted butter caramel sauce.|
