hello! i had coffee with dinner last night (always a mistake) and couldn't fall asleep until like 3 am, and i woke up with swollen lymph nodes and a little cough so i've been kind of lazy about getting going. i wanted to post really quick about the project i just finished up for school - we had to come up with a concept for a restaurant, design a menu, and make two items from it. i am really happy with the way mine turned out, so here are some photos -

the menu. a friend of mine had a moment of (semi-drunken) genius when he suggested i do a place called cathedral and serve wafers and wine. i played off the idea.

"the blood" - a red wine sabayon with strawberries and honey crisp tuiles

"wafers and wine" - white wine soup with macerated blueberries, blackberry sorbet, and pistachio macaroons

that's all from me for today, but more soon!

  1. AUD - you're gonna be famous! I love everything - esp the menu. the pics are just making me sad that I don't have a lifetime supply of aud-macaroons... why is that again?


  2. seriously, that is too cool for school. great idea, and very well executed!

  3. ya. I'd eat there. awesome job. I love how the strawberries in the wine glass actually mimic cathedral arches and stained glass.

  4. This is an amazing menu and concept and design. So amazing..

  5. that is pretty hilarious :) those pistachio macaroons look drool-worthy.

  6. so clever!!
    I bet your going to have the cutest little pastry shop one day... Congrats!

  7. Can I have some, please??? Those desserts look to die for! I love the creativity and execution of the menu. I could eat them right off the page. LOL

  8. Btw, I was wondering if you had announced the results of your chickdowntown giveaway?
