Petit Four

Petit four is literally ‘small oven’ in French and not ‘small 4’ as I thought (or it’s just me?). It was loads of fun making them since I always fancy small and dainty things. Was quite chaotic in the kitchen though as we had to make 4 types of petit fours in each session. Plus the chiller was not that chill and my sables was not hard enough when I cut them (yes, blame everything but the monkey who did them – as Chef C. would say).

And don’t call them cookies (not in France at least!).

Anyway, here are my petit friends:

I also made pistachio chocolate fudge (very rich and chocolatey) and macaroons with raspberry jam:

I’m not a big fan of macarons. In fact, I don’t remember eating them before. Will pop down to Laduree (they invented the double macaron sandwich in the 1800s which we see today) and see if they taste good!

    Hey,
    What fun it is to read and catch up with your latest baking creations via your blog! 🙂

    Sorry we’ve not hooked up for some weeks now – next week lah. we bring you to my secret tea house for afternoon tea * wink wink.

    Anyways, upon reading your culinary updates and learning that you are not a fan of macarons – the shock and horror has compelled me to share with you my love for Macarons:

    Once tasted…. never regretted – trust me.
    In London – you can find it inside Harrods food court – but probably we’ll need to bring you to the one in Paris for you to fully enjoy those beautiful little delights in true parisian splendour.

    Paul can testify that I sure do love ’em. And… you will too!
    hahahahaah…
