Petite Patisserie wins a Gourmand book award! Plus, how to trick-or-treat in a pandemic.
This just in…my new book, Petite Patisserie, just won a Gourmand World Cookbook Award! Such an honor and I will be delighted if I can safely travel to the awards ceremony in Paris next June. One can only hope things will be different for the better by then!
Get the recipe for these spooky (but adorable) candy trick-or-treaters in Petite Patisserie.
Halloween Trick-or-Treat Pix-O-Matic Popup
October 31 6:30PM – 9:00PM
How do you trick-or-treat safely in a pandemic? It’s tricky. (Pun intend.) The Pix-O-Matic will have 114 “doors” with different treats behind them for contactless candy fun. What’s even better about trick-or-treating in a vending machine is kids can choose the treat they want. We’ll have Pix truffles, Halloween favorites (mini candy bars), retro candies and other fun stuff (think stickers, small toys and Kellogg’s mini cereal boxes). Press the buttons and watch, mesmerized, as candy and chocolate go round and round in the carousel. When you see one you want, go for it. The vending machine doors will open for free between 6:30PM and 9:00PM on Halloween night. One treat per person, please! The Pix-O-Matic area will also be transformed into a haunted house, and the ghosts will be watching…
And dress your best for the costume contest! Take your photo with the Pix-O-Matic photo booth to show off your costume. Post it on any @pixpatisserie social media site (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) or just follow us to see if you are the winner. Winner will be announced November 2nd and wins a big box of candy ($50 value) because you probably won’t fill that pillowcase in 2020.
