My team partner from 1st semester Professional Baking is moving to San Diego tomorrow. Elaine is truly one of the most wonderful women who walk God's green earth. She was such a joy to work with in the bakery, top-notch baking skills, full of creative ideas, and best of all she was funny, always kept me laughing. I missed not being able to continue last Fall, although I did pay a visit in October. It was so good to see her again, as she was busy creating another dessert masterpiece. We have kept in touch through e-mail and phone calls. I hope to pay a visit soon so I can see her new Kitchen-Aid range and oven with steam-injection. Wow! Maybe a Dodgers vs. Padres game would be a good excuse! She inspired me to continue studying baking, testing out formulas, comparing different methods, and researching new and innovative products and trends in patisserie and artisan breads.
Happy Baking & Cooking, Elaine!
