Tarte, on Saturday with the WI girls and it was all very jolly, if not a little hectic. I had a very nice Chausson aux Pommes but the one thing that I really wanted was a Madeleine.
Lucky I got a Madeleine pan for Christmas then!
here - it's also in his marvellous book, Home Bake. He also suggests trying it with crushed pistachios. Well, if you insist...
Anyhoo, very nice with a coffee and a good book - currently An Equal Music by Vikram Seth. Probably best eaten within a day of cooking.
Talking of baking - did any of you see Lorraine Pascale's new show on BBC 2? What a breath of fresh air! Thought the 'I can't believe you made that' cake looked fab and I'm definitely trying the parmesan and poppy seed lollipops.
New year. New things. Happy days.
