pies, cakes and macaroons — Macaroons are little round cakes, crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside. They are always made of almonds, sugar and egg-whites. Macaroons have been around since the 8th century and were made in the kitchens of Venetian monastaries.

Barbra Friedman Bunnies At Play

Start a new Easter tradition: Barbra Friedman, who has a massage practice in Forestville and for years produced beautiful dried wreaths and floral arrangements for her Bennett Valley Farm, is holding spring workshops on the ancient Japanese art of ornamental Washi eggs.

The next session is April 1 from 2 to 5 p.m. There will be a final session the following Wednesday, April 8. Classes are held at Coffee Catz (6761 Sebastopol Ave., No. 300, Sebastopol).

“Washi” means paper in Japan and refers to the handmade mulberry paper used to cover the egg shells, which symbolize new beginnings and are shared with friends and family for years.

The workshops are $25, which includes materials for four eggs.

If you are looking for a unique way to entertain kids, you might consider a Washi egg party at your home.

To register for one of the scheduled workshops or to discuss a private class, call Friedman at 696-2009 or e-mail her at barbrabvf@yahoo.com. To see a Washi egg, visit http://www.barbrafriedman.com/

Two Rock Valley Cheese

via chowhound a review of the cheeses
I had a chance to sample a new producer’s goat cheese. Branded “Two Rock Valley”, the raw milk hard cheese made by DeBernardi Dairy outside Petaluma is sold in a young version or aged for more than 12 months. The milk is from their own herd and they’ve just started selling commercially this summer at a few farmers markets in Sonoma County. When queried, the owners said the style is modeled after the types of cheeses in the husband’s Swiss-Italian homeland.

I tried both the young and the aged version. The aged version is somewhat dry and suited to grating. It has a sharper, saltier taste. I liked the smoother texture, similar to Gruyere, of the young version better for a table cheese. It has a grassy, nutty character with good depth and reminded me somewhat of Tomme de Savoie.
