I’m very excited to see the beautiful space that is the Google YouTube offices in San Bruno, CA. Working with this team, including the pastry chef has been a dream. Did you know that the ingredients are local, organic and fair-traded? The pastry team is making the Ganache Glazed Chocolate Torte to Live For, both wheat and gluten free versions and serving the Vanilla Pastry Cream from Vegan Chocolate. My cookbook trailer, as seen on YouTube will be shown and some of the ingredients from the recipes will be set out in an area of the cafe. I’ll be available to answer questions about the recipes. Do you think the googlers will like the cakes? I’ll be surprised if they don’t. Books will be available for purchase.
See the Frank Gehry-designed Binoculars Building just two blocks from the beach and you’ll have found Google Los Angeles. I’m certainly looking forward to doing an Authors@Google talk and demonstration cooking class. As this is google, the food is fresh, organic and very vegan friendly. I’m making the Chocolate Torte to Live For, Ganache Glazed and serving the cakes with Vanila Cream and fresh berries. A YouTube Video will be made and I’ll post the link. Working at Google LA has it’s benefits.
