Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits

Well, another busy day in the world of the Takeda's. Did not sleep well but did get up and was very productive with getting all of the materials organized for the Murder by Malbec summer game; which is our major summer event this year. I am so excited about it, I hope that everyone participating has as much fun doing it as I have had creating and refining it.

Last night my candy shells were quite tasty and a great end to a very long couple of days. I was quite excited when a newbie at the wine dinner said that I seemed very relaxed in front of the group and that I was very good at interacting with the group. I always feel so nervous and think that everyone will sense it and not enjoy themselves but apparently I am good at bringing across my passions and not my fears.

Today we made strawberry cheesecake parfaits. Very rich but entirely delightful. I accompanied mine with M. Chapoutier Cotes-Du-Rhone Belleruche ($14) a slightly tart rose with a lot of flavor.

Hi Cristi! I'm glad you started posting regularly again because it's fun to read what you're all up to. The only bad thing is my mouth waters with every entry I read. EVERYTHING sounds so yummy. The murder mystery sounds like so much fun. I think it's great that you guys come up with so many creative ideas for the shop. Have a great 4th of July and good luck with the opening of Buzz Bistro! :-)
