kitchen rhythm

strawberry half 2

While googling wildly, I just came across Yumeiro Patishiēru, a manga and anime about a girl named Strawberry, but known as Dream-Coloured Pastry Chef.

I can rest easy – there is already an animated series about a clumsy girl who dreams of opening her own bakery in London and thinks there is a second stomach just for dessert.

On an unrelated note – but one that makes me almost as happy as this discovery – my essay about a year as an apprentice patissière is now online. Do let me know what you think?

    I definitely want to read about Strawberry the pastry chef! I too am convinced there’s a separate space in my tummy for dessert! And I’m so glad your essay is finally available. Will be downloading!! V proud bff moment. Tons of love. Ems x

    Sarah told me about your essay, and I have just downloaded and read it. You write beautifully – I love the way you describe how we need all our senses to properly judge when egg whites are beaten to just the right consistency – and how hard it is to explain to someone else! I hadn’t really thought much before about the role our hearing plays in cooking – easy to think we rely mainly on sight and smell.
    I think your essay deserves to be printed on creamy linen paper, with a couple of your beautiful drawings. Best wishes, Ruth
