This blog is a combination of two interests: writing and baking. I use the phrase ‘coffeehouse’ because it describes so accurately the fusion of these two passions. The French ‘salons’ became the emodiment of the public sphere in 18th century France, a place where people would get together to discuss issues old and new, a place that historians believe became the birthplace of the Revolution. Even today there are tea shops and diners all over the world which serve the very same purpose. This is what I have envisioned for my corner in the blogosphere.
