Happy birthday, Elisa!

It’s Elisa’s birthday today, and I’m such a crappy friend that I didn’t have time to make her birthday pie.

That’s right, birthday pie. A few years ago, I stopped giving birthday gifts and started giving people birthday pie.

Think about it. Birthdays? Awesome. Pie? Fabulous. Birthday pie? OMG, that’s amazingly, spectacularly delicious.

Elisa, I’ll make it up to you on pi(e) day. That’s March 14, kids. Bonus points if you can tell me why that’s pi(e) day.

7 years as a chemist + 9 months of culinary school + 2 years as a pastry chef & chocolatier + a lifetime of writing = this blog. This blog won't always be about chocolate, but it will almost certainly be about food. The name of the blog is a triple play on words. 1. It's a nod to my training as a classical pianist. Among other fantastic accomplishments, J.S. Bach combined technical prowess with artistic inspiration and penned the 24 preludes & fugues that make up The Well-Tempered Clavier, Books I and II. 2. In order to behave properly, chocolate needs to be tempered. In a nutshell, tempering prompts the chocolate to assume its most stable crystalline form (beta prime, if you're interested) so that it is shiny, snappy, and as stable as it can be. 3. Depending on my mood and how we meet, you might agree that I'm well-tempered. Or not.

  1. I love that I’m not the only geek. You both hide it so well, but I’m onto you now.

    Wayne – I didn’t manage to serve it at 1:59 last year, but since it’s on a Saturday this year, I might just do it.

    Marga – we can discuss payment when I see you next.
