It is certainly shameful, but not as shameful as the uneven edges on that pastry.

I noticed that too. Probably a dull knife.

Matt, if you want, I can loan you my signed copy of How to Pick a Peach. I think it may help you out.
So was it delicious?

Was super delicious. The other pastry, a dartois, which is basically puff pastry filled with blueberry jam, was even better.

I think you'd make a nice Paris Brest cake. You should do that next. Maybe with some nice fresh strawberries.

So.... you, like me, are not a very "sweets" oriented guy. I think we both prefer cheese and more vino (or maybe you're just trying to get it over with to get to the armagnac laugh.gif ) over anything nearing the realm of dessert. Why the new pastry craze? Just a new challenge to tackle, or what?

Yeah, just to fuck around with something different. It's fun to learn new things.
