The best of all doesnt have a photo, but I can tell you about it. A friend of mine who was an aspiring chef turned organic farmer gave me a huge amount of gorgeous baking supplies. A frosting tip set that has more then 20 tips, several carving tools and dyes. I got a wok and a large skillet with high sides and lid that I could never afford. He also gave me a beautiful cheese board with knives and a case, a mandoline (is that what its called?), and all the cake pans I could want including two tart pans. Oh! I cant forget the bagguette proofing pans! Those will come in handy.
Fall is in full swing here in Central California. The leaves have begun to turn a brilliant scarlet and gold, the air has a crispness that only comes from the North, and we have a chance of rain in the forecast. The best part is that my birthday is coming up soon! I love October!
