This is a down-to-earth, simple, German cake. The treat is rustic and not-too-sweet. It is a welcome change from the rich, sugary cakes you are probably accustomed to living in the states.
Paula Lujan Quinene writes mostly about her long-time loves--Guam, exercise, and desserts. Born and raised on the 32-mile-long rock, this proud islander now lives in North Carolina where she continues to work on Guam recipes, is learning more about southern food, and meeting famous chefs. She has discovered the wonder and awe of A Southern Season in Chapel Hill, NC, where she has already taken a class by Roland Mesnier, the pastry chef to five White House presidents, and Nick Malgieri, author to so many dessert and bread books!
Paula has also written reviews for bakeries in the Triangle of North Carolina, including Guglhupf in Durham, Miel Bon Bons in Carrboro, Hereghty's in Raleigh, Stick Boy Bread Company in Fuquay Varina, Neomonde in Morrisville, Blue Moon Bakery in Cary, and Sweet Memories in Apex. These articles were published by Examiner.com.
Schooled as an exercise scientist at the University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon, Paula has been able to help friends, family, and fans with their cooking and exercise endeavors.
Paula used her science background to artfully meld the science of baking with the art of making French macarons. Macarons Math, Science, and Art, is the author's third cookbook. A Taste of Guam and Remember Guam are Paula's tribute to the cultural heritage of her native island.
