Chocolatiers are wonderful
SO MUCH exceptional chocolate from Bonnie Lau at Miel Bonbons for tomorrow’s signing. I just got back from picking it up.
Every time I talk to chocolatiers-pâtissiers, I come away stunned at their generosity and their energy and discipline. Bonnie made these chocolates for me (for free, they’re a gift to you all), is up at 3:00 tomorrow to drive to Charlotte for the Democratic Convention which wanted her macarons, has a weekend packed with weddings demanding not only all the petits fours but insanely impossible Ace of Cakes type of cakes. (Impossible–but not for Bonnie.)
Just trying to conceive of the energy necessary to be the best at this career…it’s just amazing.
