Mum and I had a Food Network marathon this morning, finishing with Eric Lanlard’s Glamour Puds.

Eric Lanlard is a French patissier, and has the most delightful accent on television. Today, he baked a variation of the Austrian sachertorte and kept referring to it as ‘ma ohn vehr-shion’. Amazing.

I love the Food Network. The other 99 cable channels can sod off. 


5 Steps to Spectacular Spun Sugar with Eric Lanlard

I got an email this afternoon to say I’d won a copy of this book, yay! I never win anything (apart from this laptop) and I’d completely forgotten I’d entered the competition so it was a nice surprise.

Eric Lanlard’s cakes are amazing, I could only aspire to be as good as him one day.
