If you know anything about baking then you are already familiar with Rose Levy Beranbaum. Her book, The Cake Bible, is the go-to source for all things cake. The “Diva of Desserts” has also published nine cookbooks and she is a delight in person. Rose’s new book, Rose’s Heavenly Cakes, and her blog, Real Baking With Rose, are great resources for baking tips.
Local chocolatier Zach Townsend, of Pure Chocolate Desserts by Zach, is hosting Beranbaum on her trip to Dallas which includes a cooking demonstration at Central Market in Plano on Sunday February 10 from 2-4PM. There will be a book signing after the class and you don’t have to take the class to get a new book signed! You can even bring in your smeared and dog-eared The Cake Bible and get it autographed. It’s all here. (I use Google Chrome and can’t access this link. The phone number is 469-241-8389.)
Speaking of Central Market: Tomorrow locations will debut “The Chocolate Collection.” From February 6 to the 14 the aisles will be filled with “the largest selection of imported and local chocolates in the country.” All of the decadent details are here.
