Our doors may be closed, but here are five ways to still get your Pix fix!
Hello Folks, You all know the state of things right now so I’ll spare you a sad story. Instead, I want you to know that I am here for you! That’s right, it’s just me here in the (sterilized) kitchen, just like it was when I started Pix in 2001. It’s weird. Back then, before the restaurant could open, I was flying solo and doing special orders for my newsletter subscribers to stay in business. Déjà vu it is. With that said, I would like to offer you five ways you can still get your Pix fix, because you just might need something to make you smile in the coming weeks (and yes, months).
Special Orders – I am taking special orders for pick up by appointment. This includes desserts, conservas and beer and wine. I am very flexible. Just tell me what you are looking for and I’ll do my best to make it happen. To place a special order, email email@example.com. Delivery for special orders over $80 may be an option. Please inquire with your address.
Caviar Delivery – Our Caviar outlet will try to be open as much as possible for delivery during daytime hours. Did you know you can place Caviar orders in advance? The Caviar menu can be seen here.
Take-Out – Items can also be picked up without a special order during some daytime hours. If you are in the neighborhood and want to stop by for a few items, call to see if I am here. 971.271.7166 Note that these items (like all the desserts we have made for the past 19 years) will be frozen and need time to thaw. Love your freezer, it’s magical.
Shipping – Easter will soon be here! The following items are available for shipping:
Pix Surprise Eggs Like Kinder Eggs but with better chocolate and cooler toys. $6 each or $35 per 6-pack
Pix Peeps Housemade vanilla marshmallow chicks. Cute and delicious. $4 each in a gift bag
Poisson d’Avril Chocolate fish for April Fool’s Day. $10 a tin
Flat rate pricing is $9 for the Poisson d’Avril and $16 for the eggs and peeps, but you can fit multiples in one box for the same price.
DYI – Many of our Pix classics are in my cookbook, Modern French Pastry. You will find the recipes for the Royale, Blue Cheese Truffles, Beer Floats and our macarons (yes, it’s the SAME recipe we use at the restaurant) in the book plus many more. Modern French Pastry is available online or as a pickup option.
Now, I would like to offer up a few ideas of things to do at home that do not involve watching Netflix (at least, not ALL the time!)
Have a dance party with your pets. Start learning a language. Train for a marathon or 5K…good for the body and mind. Learn to floss properly (your teeth or your body, the choice is yours.) Read a book. Or write a book. Practice some new cocktails. Make art. Get a pen pal. (Google it if you need to.) Dive into a cookbook and make something new. Don’t have the ingredients? Play top chef and only allow yourself to use 5 ingredients from the refrigerator (salt, pepper and water are freebies!) Clean your house. Smile and wave at your neighbors. It’s free, healthy and contagious in only the best ways. Meditate. Sleep in. Why the hell not?
While it is peaceful and quiet here, it’s kind of lonely. Call me! We will get through this. But it will take time. May the whisk be with you!
