Macaron

This is a video for the beautiful Nadège Patisserie. It’s dangerously close to where I live. Another shop that sells macarons in downtown Toronto is Petit Thuet, dangerously close to my work, with an amazing espresso macaron.

My friend Lisa home-made me a giant box of lemon and mint chocolate macarons for my birthday last week. They only lasted 2 days. It was amazing and just what I wanted.

When I was little I remember hearing people talk about these french pastries, these ‘macarons’… I thought, who cares, they aren’t that good. My grandma makes them at least eight times a year! Of course, I was thinking of ‘macaroons‘, those chocolate and coconut mounds that have been brought to every family gathering since before I can remember.

Cheers to foods.

Iceland Awesome

This is pretty great. Makes me want to shake a tail feather… and go to Iceland I guess.

One of my favorite parts are the three milk maids (?) dancing Beyoncé style.

Fresh Influence

Sitting at home sick, watching this video, thinking about chicken noodle soup and streams of influence and culture. I like this. A lot.
