My Mom Met David Lebovitz, or OMGWTFBBQ!

My mom with David Lebovitz

You may have noticed if you've been following this blog that I am a big fan of David Lebovitz. I've made a bunch of his recipes, including this, this, this, and this. I read his blog. And I follow him on Twitter. You should, too.

So it should come as no surprise that when my mom met the man/pastry genius on Thursday at a talk/book signing hosted by Charles Chocolates in Emeryville, CA, I was jealous. And that was before I saw the above photo. Now I'm just....beside myself!

David, if you're listening, come down to LA so I can shake your hand, or serve you some Maple Walnut Ice Cream from your cookbook. Last time I made it, it was the hit of my dessert party.

Pretty please?

It was great to listen to David Lebovitz talk about himself and learn a little bit about his life now in Paris. He seems fun, kind, and creative. I think he's a visionary in the pastry world with a great sense of humor! I like how he said he uses salted butter (for real) and is getting a book on baking with corn syrup ready (just kidding, I think)so that he's ready to publish as soon as corn syrup is no longer the maligned ingredient it currently is!! Wish you'd been there with me, Marni! listen to David Lebovitz AND to have the most amazing mocha ever at Charles Chocolates!!!:-)
