No recipe, just words and pictures today.
What began as a high school french class extra credit project is now an annual holiday tradition. Every year we make a version of the classic french Buche de Noel, slightly different each time. This year we went with meringue mushrooms inspired by a Serious Eats post and worked off that with a little pecan dust (for leaves/mulch) and dehydrated coconut dyed with green and black food color paste.
Thanks to everyone this year who found this blog, liked my stuff, commented, or otherwise made a little place for me in your heart. It’s been fun hearing from you and trying to think of new things to make each week. I wish all of you the best for the rest of the year and a very happy start to the new one. See you in a few days!
