Back in Blue

You asked for it, you got it.

back in blue fig. a: back in blue

This Saturday, August 27, Michelle will be hosting the last social of the summer social season: her Blueberry Social.

It all goes down at this week's Marché de FoodLab in Place de la Paix, off St-Laurent Boulevard, between René-Lévesque and Ste-Catherine, and adjacent to the S.A.T. (La Société des arts technologiques), from 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM.

Like our earlier socials, Blueberry Social will be a by-donation-only berry extravaganza ($10 suggested donation, but any amount of money will be accepted), this time featuring blueberry cobbler with lightly whipped cream, iced tea, and rhubarb lemonade, with all proceeds going to our friends at Dans La Rue.

Blueberry Social will be just one of the attractions at the S.A.T.'s Marché de FoodLab. There will also be plenty of organic farmers on hand selling fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as other products.

Come down and say 'hello.' Eat blueberry cobbler till you're ready to burst.

"I've got a blueberry for a daughter!" fig. b: "I feel funny!"

Think about it: this is our chance to take back the Quartier des Spectacles! In the most delicious way.

Hi, it's Liz from the social, the one with the tart,

I was wondering if you had any advice for someone looking for more professional pastry experience? I work as "chef" (more or less) at a cafe in the mile end, but dessert is really my first love. I don't have schooling but I do have experience. Should I just... grab my resume and start talking? Are there any likely bakeries/restos around town? I don't speak french well at the moment (honoz!) but could probably fake it until my fluency comes back.

ps. the tart was delicious. :)

pps. thanks for the delicious bluebs!

Thanks, guys, it was my pleasure. Glad you liked it.

Liz, I would pound the pavement with your c.v. and ask if you can do a stage for a few weeks with someone. (Unpaid internship). Timing is everything, you never know when someone might need an extra hand.
