Joy made cannelé and was kind enough to bring a few by. I am reasonably food literate, but until last week I did not know what cannelé were. For those who have not had one, they are like mini creme brulee with lots of brulee flavor as they are made by baking custard in small, specially designed molds. You should also know that they are very difficult to bake. Fortunately for me, Joy is an outstanding pastry chef, and her cannelé are my cool thing of the day.
