巧克力talk - Valrhona

星期六应朋友之约去上了2小时的Chocolate Talk: An intro to Valrhona Chocolate。
蛮不错的,它讲解了有关巧克力的种类与它的做法。
当然还有机会许多品尝不同的巧克力,蛋糕师傅还示范了3样巧克力的食谱。
因为不能拍照,所以无法和姐妹们分享。。。。抱歉啦^o^

我们家很喜欢这个品牌的巧克力,它很醇很滑,入口即溶。
无论是用来做糕点或是当零食吃都很棒很棒!
这两包分别是66%(Caraibe)和55%(Equatoriale)的苦巧克力。
我喜欢55%的,而我家小姐居然爱66%超苦的。她说越苦越好吃,还叫我去买85%(Abinao)的。。。。晕哦!!

这cupcakes是我今天在家里做的,不错吃哦!
可惜我不能在这里公开食谱,因为呢。。烘培学院有copyright的,所以大家明白啦^o^


如大家有兴趣,可以到Shermay's Cooking School看看哦!!
现在购买valrhona巧克力还有20%的discount!!

生命的暖流

朋友,你们有想我吗??
这些日子因为老爸的病,我忽略了我这网上的家。
我很想回家,很想烘焙,很想念网友们,但就是力不从心也没有太多的时间!!
收到Shan的礼物,我很开心很感动很想哭!
这样的心情不是因为有礼物收啦。。。。
是因为最近我觉得生命很灰很绝望,做什么都不对,也看不到前面的路~~
所以她和它们的出现让我感动了!!
感谢Shan,谢谢你让我心暖暖的,
谢谢你给我了正能量,让我感觉到人生还是有希望的,我不是孤独的。

当然还要感谢支持我的朋友们,谢谢你们哦^o^
有你们真好!!
