Valentin Jardinier-Almodovar and the Macha Pear Pie in the making


Macha pie

Pears in the pie

Dear Shaded Viewers,

You might remember that Valentin baked a macha pie for my birthday, today my friend Alex is coming by for tea and Valentin proposed to make another macha pie but this time to put the macha in the dough. My first ever green pie. Cannot wait for tea time.


More later after a trip through FIAC.
