Are you ready for the boom-booms? It’s the July newsletter!
Independence Day is already this coming Monday! Papa and I will be running the Peachtree Road Race together and we hope to see some friendly faces along the way. I’m sure many of you out there will be running as well, so “May the Course Be With You”!
HOLIDAY WEEKEND HOURS:
Saturday, July 2nd, we will be closing EARLY at 3 PM.
4th of July dessert ideas:
Apple Alsacienne: Not exactly grandma’s Apple Pie, but oh so delicately delicious…Puff Pastry base, sprinkling of crushed Hazelnuts and Granny Smith apples baked in a lightly Kirsch flavored custard. If no one buys the one we have in our display case, I might just take it home and eat it for post-Peachtree breakfast. ($24/serves 8, available with one day’s notice)
Mixed Fruit Tarte: kind of like an edible boom, boom (firecracker), this creamy beauty has a sugardough base, thin sheet of Marzipan, lightly Kirsch flavored Bavarian cream and topped with a variety of colorful, fresh fruit. ($24/serves 8, available with one day’s notice)
Just a reminder, the July class is “Christmas in July” (Bûche de Noël).
As you may know, during the Christmas season, we make Christmas Yule logs, otherwise known as a Bûche de Noël. In this class, we will make the genoise (cake layer), buttercream, and meringue mushrooms. We will then demo how to put it together, how to decorate and then everyone will get to finish their own small bûche to take home! Time permitting, you will learn how to temper chocolate to make chocolate decorations!
Time: 9 AM – Noon (with lunch, provided by us, directly following the class)
Dates offered: July 16, 20, 23, and 30
We have a new Summertime dessert, called “This is not a Cupcake”: Sugardough base, Mango Bavarian Cream, thin piece of dark chocolate and topped with Passion Fruit Chiboust. Light and refreshing, a perfect dessert for your summer time barbeques! Our new neighbor, Le Caveau Fine Wines has the following incredible wine that pairs well with it: 1995 Barrere Clos Cancaillau Cuvee Gourmadise Jurancon (or you can ask for the white dessert wine with a man’s face on the label).
Please note, we will be closing our doors for vacation from Sunday, August 14 through Monday, August 29. We will re-open on Tuesday, August 30.
Thank you again!
