Jeanne has put her heart on this, assisted of course by her two sous-chef Celine and Jessica. They started baking about a week before the party and decorated every individual pastry. You can also say that much of what they prepared has been tried troughout the year. I often balk at the prices of desserts in coffee shops. Macaroons costing as much a $3 a piece. But, with the amount of preparation put into cooking it at home, it is no surprise it costs so much.
The night before the party – Jeanne and the girls stayed up ’til 2 in the morning, cooking and cleaning up.It wasn’t just the amount of food prepared but the pride and the love for cooking that makes the task seemingly enjoyable. I was put in-charge of taking photos. Though I am glad that food blogger Angie brought her camera and took beautiful photos of the food while I took photos of the guests. It was a well attended party of the Harana and friends. One that we would once again filed in the many get-together of these lifelong friends.
