Day Eleven

Okay, so I don’t have any pictures from school today.  We prepped a lot of stuff today that we’re going to use later in the week.  This week we’re making….

Ice cream and sorbet!  My favorite thing to eat in the whole world!  I wonder if this week will be my favorite of the semester?   

Today we made French meringue, a sable cookie dough, two sorbet bases, a vanilla mousse, raspberry coulis, and candied pineapple.  I’ll have pictures and details for you tomorrow.

  2. Is that a banana split in the bottom picture? Did the two of you finish that together?

    1. It's a sundae... I can't remember if there was banana. Oh Eric wasn't there. I split it with three other girls.

  6. I've been reading your blog for a long time but don't comment that often...but I wanted to stop in and say that I love reading about your pastry school adventures! I'm currently living vicariously thru you :)

    Also, I'm wondering how you stay so thin with all the food you guys eat...not just at school, but when you go out to eat! I'm seriously jealous, hehe.

    1. Hi Amy! Thank you so much for reading!

      Haha. Well, this was what I ate over a month. I think I might have made it sound like I just ate all of this stuff this past week.

      I try to work out 5-6 days a week and just stay active. I wouldn't say that my dessert portions are that small. :)

  7. I recognize that hand going for the Margie's ice cream sundae :)

    I'm jealous you went to Vanille! I'm going to try and go this weekend.

      They had a brownie that looked really good. We should go to La Fournette sometime.

    2. Oooh ooh I wanna go to La Fournette! And how did I never hear about this awesome bread pudding? I am so sad that they are closed before I could try it :(

  8. I'm so glad you were able to try the bread pudding because Trotters-to-Go closed down unexpectedly! I think I stashed one in my parent's freezer when I went home last time and I'm hoping it's still there next time I visit. Love reading about your school experiences and hope we can catch up soon!

  9. LOL! The gelato and ice cream sundae look awesome! I'm excited for your week and the frozen treats you will share with us. You can make me some pistachio gelato. ;-) I'm taking a French Macaron class at the end of August at a bake shop here in Austin. I'm pretty excited. :-)

  10. Ummm...If that were me, I would definitely need another chef's coat, because I would have outgrown the first one already! All of that sounds SO good! Those sandwiches (tortas?) looked amazing. I know you have to keep up your strength...

  11. Those macarons look brilliant. I've never had a red velvet one before, but now I really want.
