Weekend tasting: Aoki again

I was checking out the new Gourmet section in the Galeries Lafayette. And because I liked Aoki quite a lot the other weekend, I decided to try something again! I chose the half sphere Citron Praliné this time.

Q&A’s about Paris and pastry school

I have been getting emails with questions about my experience at Ferrandi, living in Paris and doing an internship here. Instead of emailing everyone similar answers back, I’ll try to sum it up in this post so you can all read it!

If there are questions missing, feel free to comment below.

Goûter d’anniversaire de La Pâtisserie des Rêves!

So last weekend La Pâtisserie des Rêves celebrated it’s 5th birthday with a huge picnic! Come dressed in pink and white, bring your blanket and get a box of free pastries! There was space for 5000 people (you had to register) and the party that was dressed the best with the nicest picnic props could win a private party at the salon de thé! So some people really made an effort to impress.

Weekend Tasting: Europain + Mori Yoshida

I’m posting about weekend before before this week’s and the weekend before together as blogging didn’t happen.. Last weekend my parents and aunt visited me. We did some sightseeing and went to Jacques Genin. It was my first time trying his pastry and it did not disappoint! I had the Paris-Brest with a café creme. The coffee was good too.

Our meal

School started

Week one at school.. or week six as they like to call it.

The first two days were introduction, on the third day we made some dough and on day four we made a tarte aux pommes and a flan parisien. Saturday we also had a class, but only because it was open house day. Normally I don’t have school on Saturday.

If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen this picture. We get lunch at school everyday. To show you what it looks like (how much food we get), here is a picture. Its so much food… But as I’m just a student, I’m stuffing myself at school as it’s free. Then I’ll just eat something simple for dinner.

Mini coffee eclairs

L’eclair au café de Christophe Adam!

A couple of months ago I started to gain interest for this book of Christophe Adam called Eclairs!, it was only available in French (my French is still very poor) and I would have to order it from abroad with high shipping costs. So I procrastinated and never ordered.

To my surprise I saw the book is now available in Dutch! (yep, my main language) I went to the store and bought it immediately. These are the first eclairs I have made from this book and I’m sure many more will follow. ^^

These are mini eclairs, they are 6cm long, filled with coffee pastry cream, glazed with coffee glaze and decorated with a chocolate coffee bean.

Currently I’m busy with work and saving money so I can attend a pastry course in Paris. It is very expensive so for those who would like to help me, I made you a button. You can find it in the sidebar! I’m not really expecting anyone to help me, but it doesn’t hurt to ask right?

Thanks for reading my blog and I will try to post more :) -can’t guarantee it will actually happen-

macarons

Macarons with chocolate ganache

Hey guys, happy new year! Sorry for sort of neglecting Hungry at Midnight for the past two weeks. I did bake quite a bit, but didn’t make any posts.. I don’t do new years resolutions, but this year I will keep baking new yummy things. I baked macarons three times in December so it’s definitely worth a post.
