i have this habit of picking up pretty brochures and things from pastry boutiques and restaurants while i travel. i stuff them into some deep dark corner of my bag, along with the hotel folios and ticket stubs. i tell myself that one day, they’ll make for good material if i ever take up scrap-booking. of course, i never actually do and i end up throwing out the whole lot.
i finally decided to tackle my “vacation” pile last night and came upon some of said brochures. thought i’d post the one from joel robuchon in roppongi hills. it’s filled with all sorts of delicious ideas about pastry and apples from normandy and brittany (and if you jump on a plane to tokyo now, you can still catch the last 2 weeks of joel robuchon’s normandy and brittany pastry offering!!!)
there’s a better picture of the pithiviers á la pomme that i had posted previously (and mislabeled as a chausson aux pommes). the cake au caramel, noix et pomme pictured next to the pithiviers is kinda calling out, “make me, make me,” right now . . .
