My friend Judith left the week before I did, so our class had a little fete and we all brought food from our country. I asked the class what American food they wanted and EVERYONE requested brownies, so I found a recipe for Cheesecake Brownies on David Lebovits’ blog (my fave baker). He is an American living in Paris, and all of his recipes have the ingredients’ measurements by weight as well as cups/spoons. This came in handy since Martine only uses a scale to measure her ingredients. The brownies turned out pretty good. Judith made a banana cream tart from Mexico, my teach, Virginie, made a chocolate cake, and the Japanese students made an assortment of food that I had never seen or tasted before. Everything was super tasty!
