Mont Blanc Oreos and Others from Mitsuwa!

Wednesday 12th November 2014 - 12:15:40 AM

It seems like Japanese Oreo Soft Cookies have been really getting in on the special flavors lately. This past weekend at the NJ Mitsuwa I came across these. At first, I thought they were just Chestnut flavored, but upon closer inspection, I realized they are Mont Blanc flavored, based on the European pastry made with Chestnut cream and sometimes accented with rum. My friends noticed a boozy taste, I thought they just tasted like a soft chocolate Oreo with a light chestnut flavor in the center. Not a bad seasonal flavor idea with the holidays coming soon.

Exclusive Robicelli’s Comic!

Tuesday 14th October 2014 - 3:35:22 AM

Reminder! The Robicelli’s book, Robicelli’s: A Love Story, with Cupcakes: With 50 Decidedly Grown-Up Recipes, is here! I thought it would be fun to share these comic pages I collaborated on with Allison when the book was in the pitching stage. These pages are not in the book, but I think they’ll give you a good idea of the fun tone of the book!robcomfin1a


The book got a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly!  I had a blast drawing Allison’s script for some recipe comics. This book is going to be hilarious and packed with great recipes!
