More from Paris to come, but I thought we all need a small break from fashion. LA’s homegrown coffee roasting is getting a new player with Handsome Coffee Roasters. I can say from first-hand experience, the coffee is delicious and expertly prepared. Look for Handsome’s coffee bar come December of 2011 in downtown LA. Of course the perfect partner for coffee is cake. What kind of cake you ask? Oh, say a butter cake with champagne ganache and a ganache coat to finish it all off from Valerie’s Confections. Coffee and cake, it’s a pairing as good as Balenciaga clothes and Pierre Hardy shoes.
I toyed with calling this blog “f-word obsessions” for my twin love of food and fashion, but rightly thought I wouldn’t have time to do justice to both. But from time to time, I won’t be able to resist a food post. Yesterday, I volunteered at the KCRW Pie Contest over at the LA County Museum of Art. My overall favorite pie was in the Tim Burton category – in honor of an exhibit currently being held at the museum – and I present: James and the Honey Bourbon Peach.
