In the second grade I learned how to spell dessert…
We were living in Korea and I was going to an American school.
I can’t remember my teacher’s name.
But I can remember the day when my teacher, whose name might have started with a G, was writing on the blackboard and explaining that a desert only has one “s.”
But a dessert has two, because you always want more dessert than desert.
She was right. I have always wanted more dessert than desert… or anything else really.
But today I learned that after spending all day photographing just five desserts, for the Town Hall cook book, eventually, even I did not want more dessert… well at least for a few hours. Knowing that I wasn’t permanently cured of my insatiable sweet tooth, I boxed up the leftovers and took them home, so I would be prepared when the cravings for more dessert returned.
Huge thanks to my very stylish and talented friend, Bridget, for making the day and process so much sweeter.
