Welcome back and happy 2011 and new venture. I have been waiting to see in what new incarnation you would hopefully reappear. Sounds like another exciting venue with much fodder for your insightful and always entertaining adventures. Buona fortuna and "in boca al lupo" ("in the mouth of the wolf"...an Italian saying in the tradition of 'break a leg").


Congratulations on last year's journey, and best of luck in 2011. See you soon at Citizen Cake!


I'll be visiting my family next month from Paris, and will definitely come in with my little boys! As a fellow SF native (transplanted in Paris), I've been following your set backs and achievements, wide-eyed at your dedication, and always with admiration. Bravo, to you, for finding your 'home'. Much, much respect.


I take back what I said about you not having blogged in months. Great to see a new post, even better to see that big smile on your face.

I have to follow my sibling's pilgrimage and get over to CC3.0, but over here there's foie frais and sweet sweet booze available whenever you can step away for a little break.

Ms. Glaze

I'm definitely feeling older and wiser this year. And I'm ready for some fun. Last year was a lot of hard work with not a lot to show for it. I made choices without studying the whole picture first. Now I know better. Hard learning is sometimes the best learning. But this year already feels more settled in a good way. More organic.

I hope that everyone is off to a good start! Happy New Years!!!

And yes, wattacetti, you must come in! But I will make the foie pilgrimage in the spring!


How bizarre! I thought about you today and if you were still in the Marina and looked up your blog and here you are just posting this message. Now that's Universal synchronicity. Love Elizabeth Faulkner and so glad you have landed where you feel is home. My husband and I have an anniversary coming up in early March, so I will talk him into coming. We're just over the bridge so not so far away.

Best to you and Let Them Eat Citizen Cake..and more!


I'm so pleased you are happy and things are working out for you. You certainly deserve it! And thanks for all the inspiration to get me creative in the kitchen again every time I read your blog.

Having a couple of 'failures' behind you is an asset (so long as you learn from them!). They help to free you from the fear of failure - you have been there before and survived, it wasn't so bad after all. You can take the future risks and responsibilities head-on, and still sleep at night!

Great to hear from you. Love Citizen Cake. Can't wait to visit.
Best of luck


Congratulations. Your hard work is paying off. Can't wait to try your food.

The Brother

Though obviously the lesser known of two brothers, you were very kind to me when I stepped foot into your restaurants (CC and previously Circa). I'm not the foodie my bro is, but I do know I really enjoyed your food. Plus you looked like you were really enjoying Citizen Cake when I was there last.

Happy for your success! and hope you make it to the Great White North sometime.


I always enjoy hearing about what adventure your on..you inspire me!!! I have seriously thought of taking the step of starting a catering co. I am passionate about baking french pastries ever since I got back from the Le Cordon Bleu in Paris.

Expat Stu

Yeah, congrats. I see you have dorade on the menu regularly. MIAM. Any Picpoul de Pinet on the wine list, to go with?

I've missed you so much!! Glad things are going well. Woohoo for Citizen Cake!! Elizabeth Falkner is amazing! Justin and I saw you on Avec Eric earlier this week. You are so fabulous! Keep in touch! - xoxo


Oh My God Ms Glaze! Congradulations! You still drink champagne. Fantastic! John


Maybe get the 'wonderful' Elizabeth Falk to update the Citizen Cake website so that it reflects your presence, huh?


Oh My God Ms Glaze! A new picture of you on your site. So long to the Parsian look. Proof of your survival in the USA, where everything is better! John

Cindy Sue

OH my gosh! You make me want to make a trip there just to come and see ya'll! Do you ship? HAHA!

Generally I do not post on blogs, but I would like to say that this post really forced me to do so, Excellent post!

Jason Fullilove

Thank you for being so open and honest about all of your work experiences. You're a true chef and inspirational to us all.


Hey Ms Glaze! what's cooking? John


Nice to read you've settled. Please post more.


I came across your website and found it alluring and exciting. I am a big fan of travel. If you could e-mail me back, that would be great. I just had a couple questions.
I look forward to hearing back from you soon! Have a great day.


Thank you for the post.

I have a recommended site for your restaurant kitchen stewarding needs.

Here it is: http://www.stewardingdepartment.com

Good luck!


Amy! Just sent my friend Jim to see you at Citizen Cake.

Hope you are very well... M.

Congratulations! I think any small business owner that has gone from concept to consumers can appreciate this article. Thanks for the post.



Been following your blog for a couple years now. You're an inspiration.
