Miette & Aaron at Selma Cafe

Posted by pwp on November 23, 2011

Selma Cafe brings so many opportunities to the community. The main one is to raise funds for local food initiatives such as helping build hoop houses and helping young entrepreneurs start their own farms. This is a crucial effort to enhance our quality of life and the culture of our communities by going back to a local network of food providers. Some other opportunities that Selma cafe offers are to meet old and new friends on Friday mornings for a great breakfast made with local and seasonal ingredients. The opportunity that was so evident last Friday was to allow the expression of the incredible creativity and teamwork of Chef Chris of Miette and Aaron, Ph.D (Chem). Their idea was to conceive a menu with the delicious fresh “Miette” brioche and some taste of molecular gastronomy with a “sous-vide” egg. And le Miette sandwich was born!
When such magic happens, anything is possible and in this case, Chris and Aaron with the amazing help from all the volunteers have actually broken the record with 209 guests! So congratulations to everyone for making Selma Cafe such a hit and a true Ann Arbor tradition in the coming.

Here are some of my favorite moments of the morning.

Here is how le Miette sandwich looks like… I wish I could show you how it tasted!

Here is how the magic starts… simply by a one-of-a-kind Miette brioche bun

I love the touch of beet reduction brushed on the plate.

And here comes the “sous-vide” egg placed delicately by Aaron on the cheese crisp.

So much focus on the whole process!

I can’t resist but put another shot of this beautiful process…

Chef Chris with her delicious choux a la creme!

Teamwork in action.

Aaron explaining how his “sous-vide” machine works its magic.

Et voila!

Chris and Aaron, hats off to your beautiful creation!

Just a few of the 200+ guests who will remember this breakfast for a long time to come!

I’d like to end with this shot that I took before the event. Chemistry and Pastry at their best!

    Definitely imagine that which you said. Your favorite
    justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to consider of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as other people think about concerns that they just do not
    understand about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects , folks could take a signal.

    Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
