Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Small Subjects

Each week Cee challenges bloggers to share black and white photos based on a theme. This week she’s challenging us to share black and white photos that show small subjects. It’s open to personal interpretation so I expect a lot of variety. For more black and white photos from this week’s theme click here.

Kings of Pastry

kingsofpastry1

The epitome of achievement in the world of French pastry is the M.O.F., a pastry chef who’s merited the prestigious Meilleurs Ouvriers de France competition (Best Craftsmen in France). The documentary The Kings of Pastry takes viewers into the world of the intense competition. MOF chefs receive a red, white and blue collar and a medal from the president of France.

The film follows Jacquy Pfeiffer, co-founder of Chicago’s French Pastry School, as he vies for the supreme honor. We see Pfeiffer and two other chefs preparing and competing. They must create a wedding cake, sugar sculpture, buffet of pastries under strict rules in three days.

The film is engrossing as it goes deeper than the average TV cooking competition and really examines the passion and craftsmanship of the pastry world. It did make me crave some delectable, sophisticated treats so you’ve been warned.

Yesterday’s Banquet

Impressive

China is a food culture. Period. End of story. People mark the beginning of the school year, or any venture, I gather, with a banquet.

Yesterday our American school treated us to a sumptuous luncheon. I soon lost track of the number of courses we had. That’s easy to do at one of these affairs in China.

Fatty Pork

One of my new colleagues had the good fortune of celebrating a birthday yesterday so we got to finish off the meal with a beautiful cake. What I like about Asian baked goods is they aren’t too rich or too sweet.

I think even a Chinese person who lives to be 100 would never eat all the dishes available just in our region, Shandong. One thing that isn’t poorly made in China is the food.
