I discovered Maître Choux by chef Joakim Prat through their Instagram handle and I was completely mesmerized. Located in London, the "first and only choux pastry specialist patisserie in the world" as they assert on their website, has certainly a gorgeous display of choux pastry creations like none I had seen before. An admirer of French patisserie, I couldn't help to be amazed by the imagination and visual appeal. My favorite was their Red Love Eclair, raspberry at its glory!

ILLUSTRATION #2 -  PECORINO DELLA MONTAGNA PISTOIESE

This is an illustration of a Pecorino della montagna pistoiese, a type of cheese, from Pistoia, in Tuscany, Italy. This is actually part of a group of illustrations depicting several delicacies of the province that I had the chance to visit thanks to CCT-SeeCity. The video shows half way through the final progress of this painting. A combination of media, including watercolors, colored pencils, soft pastels and graphite.
