Seven's heaven - Meme

Another recipe i must ask - Maud's never-fail chocolate cakies (between a cake and a cookie)

I was tagged by Bea from La tartine gourmande for this 7 meme. All I have to do is make lists of 7 things. If it does not seems very clear to you, just look below...
Actually I decided to change it slightly - the main topic here will be food, cooking and baking! So let's call this the 7 food meme.

7 things to do/buy/cook/bake/eat before I die
- buy PH10 by Pierre Herme
- attend pastry and cooking courses at Le Cordon Bleu
- open a 'salon de the' [tea room] in London
- take classes in food photography
- go to NYC's foodies places like Dean and Deluca, Sur la table, Magnolia Bakery… preferably at Christmas time
- learn to make sushi
- have all the Rosle kitchen tools

7 things I cannot do/eat/make
- eat lamb - just the smell of it makes me sick
- unmould panna cottas
- 'pate brisee' [plain pastry] without farina tipo 00
- not thinking about food everyday
- not buying a cookbook every fortnight
- wait for the cake to be completely cold before icing it
- restrain myself from buying less than 5 packs of instant-action yeast when going to Waitrose

7 things that attract me to blogging
- improve my english
- improve my photography
- improve my culinary skills - like how to unmould pretty mousses from cooking rings
- discover the cookbooks I already own
- share a passion with foodies around the world
- discover new ways of cooking things
- great inspiration

7 things I say most often when I'm in a kitchen
- 'maman il est ou le beurre/le lait...' [mum, where is the butter/the milk...]
- 'tu peux me donner la recette' [can you give the recipe?]
- 'MoWmAwE' (full mouth)
- 'hum, c'est quoi?' [yum, what's that?]
- 'beurk, c'est quoi!' [ugh, what's that!]
- do you think it looks good? "t'es u" [are you sure?]
- 'comment on dit "parsley" en francais, mais oui tu sais le petit herbe verte...' [what's the french word for 'parsley', you know the little green herb...]

7 cookbooks I love
- How to be a domestic goddess from Nigella Lawson
- bills Sydney food from Bill Granger
- Mes desserts au chocolat from Pierre Herme
- Feast from Nigella Lawson
- The naked chef from Jamie Oliver
- Mes 100 recettes de gateaux from Christophe Felder
- Hope I will get it soon - PH 10 from Pierre Herme

7 food DVDs I watch over and over again
- Jamie's kitchen
- Nigella bites
- all the tapes I recorded from UKTV FOOD

I've been to Magnolia bakery in NY and can honestly say they have the best cupcakes I have ever tasted, so it's great that you have it on your to do list.

Hey Fanny!
I was tagged by Bea as well, and thought, OMG....I just can't think of all those things, your version is so much better and I will respond using your titles.
Love your new blog and am afraid I AM what I eat.
Take care.
