Look what arrived in the mail!
I’m very excited to share this with you as a new feature at Cakewalker: The Guest Postcard series.
Much like a postcard, the series centers on food subjects sent in from my friends for all to enjoy. The guest post might cover a variety of topics in the form of a travelogue, a favorite food find, a regional recipe, technique or other treasures of the food world. The surprise element about postcards is—you never know who, when or from where in the world one will arrive in the mailbox.
It is my greatest pleasure to introduce you to a man with a most generous heart, Chef Dennis Littley. In a previous post, I stated that Chef was a catalyst in establishing my presence in the food world and on the web. Dennis has single-handedly impacted food bloggers in a dynamic, benevolent way by creating the G+ Food Bloggers Community; a place where publishers congregate to learn from each other by sharing experiences and educational events. To further demonstrate what a gem of a man he is, Chef Dennis sent this postcard in celebration of my website migration to WordPress—a gesture which is the benchmark of true altruism. To you good man I’m grateful and I thank you.
Ladies & gentlemen, please welcome…
CHEF DENNIS LITTLEY
For those of you that don’t know me, I’m Chef Dennis, from “A Culinary Journey with Chef Dennis” and today it’s my great pleasure to be Guest Posting for Brooks at his new home on WordPress.
A few years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Brooks Walker through Foodbuzz, and from the moment I saw his first creation I knew this man was destined for great things. His blog name spoke to me… “Cakewalker” which immediately elevated him to the level of Jedi Master of Cake Bakers…
So today it is indeed an honor and privilege to share this recipe with his readers, I hope you enjoy it!
One of the easiest breakfast pastries to make has to be scones. They come together so quickly and can be made so many different ways, the possibilities are endless.
One of my favorite flavor combinations is salted pistachios and dried cranberries, you get that salty crunchy flavor of the pistachio and the tart sweet flavor of the cranberry, and it’s just a match made in heaven.
Now throw in a little Meyer lemon, and you’ve got a joyous celebration of flavors…sigh.
Although I only seem to see Meyer Lemons during the winter months, I can’t help thinking of summer whenever I use them. They’re a little taste of sunshine during these long cold grey winter days.
What gorgeous, flavor packed scones from Chef Dennis! His irresistible photos draw you in and leave you inspired. Be sure to brighten up your family’s breakfast by making some of these pastries soon.
Kindly take a moment to say hello to Chef Dennis in a comment below and be sure to visit his place for a plethora of culinary creations.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this Guest Postcard as much as I have. Until next time, happy baking!
