As I mentioned in a previous post, I went to Austin at the beginning April for the Foodways Texas symposium. I had an amazing trip: ate a ton of BBQ, learned a lot, saw some old friends, and made some new ones. A couple of posts about sweets I ate on my trip have made it up on Serious Eats; check them out on my writing page.
The photo above is of Jodi Elliot's Coconut Cake. She's doing some really cool things at Foreign & Domestic. If you make it to F&D definitely save room for her desserts. I'm still thinking about the basil caramel topping on this dessert.
More posts about Austin sweets are coming soon to Serious Eats. Stay tuned for some info on some new and exciting projects I'm working on!
