In Other News–19 April, 2016

1 min read


There’s nothing quite like French pastry – and no French pastry quite like pâte à choux, or choux pastry. It’s the sort that’s used to make eclairs, profiteroles, crullers, beignets, St. Honoré cake, quenelles, gougères, chouquettes and craquelins and all those other inconceivably delicious French pastries. And of course you get the croquembouche, a lumbering tower of cream or custard-filled profiteroles so favoured at weddings and other big celebrations. IN MY FACE, PROFITEROLE.

    “Shaving & dressing nicely because of the women in the office”

    Dude, Zoe’s not only married, she’s just had a kid. Really now.

      Wow dude. That’s really insensitive. Martha, Sandy & Brenda exist, and have feelings you know.

        Yeah but we only care about good looking women. Didn’t you hear the CEO?

    Also, I’m rather glad you chose today’s Tasty Tuesday header as sweet pastry stuffs. I’m much less likely to want that – have to be in the mood for sweet things, and then the pastry has to beat Ice Cream, Shortbread, and Brownies before it even gets considered.

            April 19, 2016 at 16:13

            Now I want braai vleis as well. DAMMIT.

    I could do with a dozen, or two, of those right now.

    I hope Dark Souls 1 multiplayer dying fixes the horrendous intermittent freezing of the game.
