Sunny and 65* in Seattle demanded a trip to Pike Place Market. We relished the morning as we played tourist in our own city.
We each had our own mission. I was determined to pick up some vital ingredients to appease some pregnancy cravings – butter, goat cheese and chocolate cake. At DeLaurenti I found an incredible French butter. Salty with a sour tangy finish. A fresh Chevre with an herb coat was found at the Paris grocer and the chocolate cake is still out there.
The boys headed right towards the mini donuts – fresh from the fryer.
At my favorite produce stand I bought everything they fed me. Muscat grapes, the most perfect pears I’ve tasted and a melon sweeter than the candy I couldn’t pass up.
With the sun pouring through our windows upon our return I decided to have fun with my camera. A little impromptu photo shoot with my market models.
A perfect Spring family day.
Flowers from my dear husband after his “fragile” wife was having a rather rough day.
Some of the best dishes require no recipe. Such is the case for this perfectly ripe melon.
A craving. They say if you crave sweets then it’s a girl – I like the sound of that!
– I’m so excited to be teaching about the ever intimidating meringue. In this course we will be creating perfectly light Pavlova with Roasted Rhubarb and Strawberry Curd, classic French Macarons with Italian Meringue Buttercream and a Banana and Chocolate Souffle that will delight.
