Please allow me to share a very exciting bit of news: I have been published in a magazine! Edible East Bay, a quarterly magazine that focuses on local and seasonal foods in the East Bay (for those of you not from around Northern California, that would be the area east of San Francisco – think Berkeley, Oakland, Walnut Creek, Livermore.) has just come out with its Spring issue.
My contribution is an article on Bittersweet Chocolate Cafe, a little shop in Oakland’s upscale Rockridge area that I’ve mentioned before, and where I’ve been making pastries in the kitchen for the last few months. I’m pleased to provide a behind the scenes look at what goes into the making of the croissants, muffins, and other sweets that customers order with their hot chocolate, as well as give a little history on how this haven for chocoholics came to be.
Edible East Bay is available by subscription or it can be found free around the East Bay. If you’re not able to get your hands on a copy, you can still take a look at the cover of the issue above, which shows…yes! Bittersweet’s very own Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream, photographed by me.
It’s been a very sweet January, indeed!
