Demain, déjà

[Tomorrow, already]

Today, the city woke up as I was slowly falling asleep after a night made of flour, butter and water. Through the cab window, it felt like the time had stopped. To that moment just before the dawn; when it’s still dark, but people are already running late.

My bag barely hid the jackets I was taking home. One of them used to be black, but now looks like it’s been covered in sprinkles. The kind that feels just as starch and gluten bound together with water.

Tomorrow, I will go for a walk. Possibly early in the morning. Mostly because I slept through the whole day and fed myself with clementines. It’s now dark outside once again. Except, this time, night is upon us and not behind.

    So, have a good walk…
    but..what kind of pastry/dessert did you cook last night? I’m really curious, I cannot understand from the picture…

    I saw your hotel photos…sounds fantastique.

    It’s an almond pithiviers or as we call it in France a galette des rois. I did many more things, but since I was quite anxious to see how puff pastry would turn out in such a short time-span, it was definitely the star of the niht. xx

    Love your new home, Fanny! And looking forward to seeing more deets on all of those experiments you showed in your last post on foodbeam… some exciting ideas there. I really related to what you said there about working through a hard service, too.

    thank you so much…
    sounds good…I was really curious..

    another question, sorry for this.
    Every time I try to post something or leave a comment on this site the page write “it’s sounds like you’ve already said this.
    ” or something like that.
    and, or it does not publishes anything or it piblishes twice.
    why this?

    I love your new home. The photographs and sketches make me feel like I’m peeking into someone’s private journal. You are so creative and so talented, I would say look out Pierre Herme ! Happy New Year
