Chez Karine: Software Engineer Turned Chef : lend your support

First there was Cynthia At Furenzu and now George has a friend at Chez Karine.  A tiny trend: Women software engineers turn chefs!

Chez Karine is currently holding a holiday sale at 861 Hampshire Street, San Francisco 12-6pm on Dec 4th, Dec 17, 18th.

I dropped by with Kate to say hi and spend some holiday cash.  Wow!  I was knocked off my feet!

My first taste was the Sablés Chocolat which was bittersweet chocolates with hint of fleur de sel, yeah salt with your chocolates!  I couldn’t stop eating it and wanting to taste the salt again.

To validate that this is indee a new trend in chocolates: check out the NPR interview : Savoring Salt and Chocolate with the Award Winner 2005 NASFT Outstanding Confection, Milk Smoked Salt Caramels with Welsh smoked sea salt

I picked up a few pastries yesterday and every one of these gems were amazing.  If you have a holiday party, contact Karen and place an order from her Fall 2005 Menu Don’t buy your dessert from the standard bakeries.
