look who is in the kitchen!
Posted in photographers, recipes August 21st, 2008 by piablog


There is something about me and pastry chefs.

For some reason in my career, I find myself drawn to recipe writers who are ex-pastry chefs, their food and culinary vision making me jump up and down, giddy and light headed, as I lick my lips and salivate at the thought of how fabulous their latest creation will look with various stylish accoutrements I have in my props cupboard.

Right now, in the (blog)house kitchen I have exactly someone who fits the above description – whose creations make my mouth-water just to read the title of her latest materpiece, let alone her photographs and stories about how she came up with the recipe. And who secretly, I hope to work with one day to publish a book of her sweet work.

Please welcome to the (blog)house, recipe writer extraordinaire and author of the scrumptious blog called Cannelle Et Vanille, Aran Goyoaga


To get you familiar with Aran’s recipes, here is one of my favourites, her champagne and pink grapefruit sorbet


with lemon emulsion, lemon streusel and red currant jelly


Here in the (blog)house kitchen, Aran has shared four of her favourite recipes with us, so get on in there now to take a look, but be prepared as you will want to grab your spatulas and bowls the moment you lay eyes on her photographs.

Thank you Aran, I am so pleased you are here, I do hope you enjoy your stay in the kitchen, and please don’t worry about cleaning up – Alfred will be happy to tidy any mess (because I know he likes to lick the bowls!).

    Aran and I email just about 10-15 times a day talking about work, life and everything in between. It is mind-boggling to me to be so close to someone I have never met and yet I can’t think about a day without a simple “hello! what’s for dinner!”

    Aran is a pastry genius! And a good photographer too! Aran and I have crossed paths in the past without us knowing and it’s funny how we have struck an instant friendship just by blogging. She’s that kind of trusty person :)
