I love the story Meg Ray - founder of the San Francisco bakery, Miette - tells in this video, about the beginning of her love affair with baking. A child with poor eyesight, the spark was lit the day she got glasses. "The first thing I ever really saw clearly was this pastry case. It has resonated in who I am for the rest of my life."
Speaking of dessert, I'll be resuming my Sweet Thing series next week. Can't wait to get started again!
