April 28 La Moulin de la Galette, Pastry Chef


Recommended Posts


La Moulin de la Galette, Pastry Chef

Renoir concocts a delicacy from another time,
a Napoleon, "mille feuille", a thousand leaves,
rich with the cream of humanity gathered close,
the smooth intimacy of a touch, an embrace,
the crush of a crowd where one must lean
in to converse and savor words spoken
over dance music served with a dash of romance. 
Generations and genders plated with a master
chef's hand and presented with French panache.
