Happy New Year 2010!
January 1, 2010 • Category: Travel
At midnight in Beirut on December 31st, 2009 fireworks exploded in the starry skies.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! WISHING YOU HEALTH, JOY AND PROSPERITY IN 2010!
Our cake for New Year’s Eve was a creation of Anne-Marie’s. Anne-Marie is a childhood friend who decided after a career in pharmaceutical sales in Paris to chuck it all and pursue her true passion, pastry; she trained in some prestigious pastry shops in Paris such as Gerard Mulot and others and returned to Beirut; she works out of her home and her cakes and tarts have been popular with Beirutis, who have a discerning palate; her creations are exquisite and taste homemade.
The cake below is a vacherin aux marrons, a meringue and chestnut cream cake. Anne-Marie can be found most Saturdays at Souk el Tayyeb, the organic farmers market in Beirut, or can be reached at (03) 382-436.

Happy New Year to you, too! I have to say that that cake looks GORGEOUS! Wow. What a lovely story your friend has. Good for her for pursuing her passion for pastry.
By the way, I’m adding you to my blogroll. Yes, I’m finally getting it up and running. It will be in its own tab, under “Sites I Like.”

nice to see fireworks of celebration in the sky over Beirut. May your year be blessed and joyful. Oh! I admire your friend Anne Marie! Not too many women dare to make the delicious decision she made to leave behind the lucrative job of pill pushing for the much more risky venture of pleasing people’s palates. How to get more women to see through her eyes?
