Tweets and Pictures from the entire process of making pate sucree. This is in preparation for making Florentines based on Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery. I am trying a new method to capture all of my tweets while I am baking. Hoping that this will be a quicker way to get recipes onto the blog. Let me know what you think! :)
