Arden Wohl’s scrumptious peanut butter tartlets, with lingerie panty design at VPL holiday party
Most city gals recognize Arden Wohl from fashion pages in magazines as she’s noted for her bohemian dressing, replete with head scarves, prints, and live color. She also graduated from NYU and started as a young filmmaker, casting pals like actress Lee Lee Sobieski in films, the last one about codependent pals who verged on the obsessive “Single White Female” scale.
But, Arden’s latest talent resides in her cake making. Now a student at New York’s French Culinary Institute, she’s taken a job crafting desserts at Michelin star restaurant Aureole in midtown. You’ll find such delights at warm chocolate gingerbread (with spiced cranberry and clotted cream) or coconut panna cotta on the menu.
I was personally blown away by Arden’s peanut butter tartlets, served with bubbly wine at Victoria Bartlett’s holiday sale and party. They melted in my mouth with just enough nut and cream. Don’t be surprised if there’s a fashionable bake shop in Arden’s future. Every fashionista will flock there, beating Magnolia bakery out from the “Sex and the City” days.
