Yeehaw, what a great day. If you made it you know what a friendly group of people attended the Tancredi and Morgen show on Saturday. I enjoyed my rare visits with Anna Ball, Nancy, Gerry, Carolyn, Marsha and Meegan Alldis, who shared cheese facts from working at the Cowgirl Creamery in San Francisco. Note: True Gruyere is from Switzerland and not France, and should be aged in a cave to acheive culinary greatness. I met Molly, Pam, Louise, and Vallen Queen who has a chatty and fun blog, queenlythings.typepad.com/
There must be a connection between making pottery and baking, because I find rolling out a piecrust as satisfying as throwing a soup bowl. My prize from the show is Tartine, a baking book with real-deal recipies for pastries and breads. The first thing I'll make is the chocolate souffle cake for my husband, who toted every single piece of pottery from the trunk to my table with the resident light in his eyes and never a grumble.
