I was a well adjusted gal with a quarter-life crisis who suffered a mental breakdown & thus decided to quit my job & travel across the globe to pursue my dreams of becoming a Pastry Chef at Le Cordon Bleu Sydney.
P.s. My Mum doesn't know so please don't tell!
This has got to be the highlight of the course, the piece de resistance: Poached pear tarts. A sweet pastry shell filled with a thin dacquoise sponge sandwiched between layers of pastry cream, artfully decorated with mahogany pears, this is by far the most impressive dessert we have made to date.

My Little Masterpiece
Not only is this the most impressive, it is also the tastiest dessert I've made, ever. I came home today, served myself a small tart, and savoured every delicious bite. The shell was thin and crisp, the pastry cream rich but in just the right amount, and the pears, oh my, the grainy texture I like about pears paired with the subtle red wine flavor, this is one tart I may not be sharing after all. ;)
