By popular demand, the C&Z desktop calendars are back! At the beginning of every month in 2014, I will be offering you a new wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.
As a new feature this year, the desktop calendar is now available in two versions: a US-friendly version that features Sunday as the first day of the week, and a French version that complies with international standards, featuring Monday as the first day of the week.
Camille Malmquist’s sticky buns have been on the dessert menu at Frenchie for the last couple of weeks.
Our calendar for January is a picture of the fabulous sticky buns that are sold at Frenchie To Go, Grégory Marchand’s deluxe sandwich place on rue du Nil.
The pastry chef there is my talented friend Camille Malmquist, who says, “I developed the recipe when I was asked to create a cinnamon roll for the breakfast menu. I’ve always loved the over-the-top-ness of taking a cinnamon roll and baking it, tatin-style, in caramel and toasted nuts. Fortunately, the chef agreed with me, and now they’re one of our more popular pastries, even making it to the big leagues — they’ve been on the dessert menu at Frenchie for the last couple of weeks!”
Instructions to get your calendar are below.
Here’s how it works:
1- Click on the following links to get the US version (weeks begin on Sunday) or to get the French version (weeks begin on Monday); each of these links will open a new window (or tab) displaying the wallpaper, in the appropriate format for your screen size.
2- Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and choose the option that says, “Set as Desktop Background”, “Use as Desktop Picture,” or something to that effect (exact wording will depend on the browser you use).
3- If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference panel (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.
4- Enjoy and see you next month!
