Let It Snow

You may have missed the sprinkling of tiny snow flurries that swept through Washington last night, but snowmen have already popped up at Citronelle. Chef Michel Richard is once again making his adorable meringue snowman kits, available to take home or give as a gift.

The $12 snowman package ($4 is donated to St Jude Children's Research Hospital) includes the snowman meringue, a chocolate hat and red marzipan scarf, a rosemary stalk staff, raspberry sauce and crystal sugar. Add ice cream and whipped cream to fill the little guys at home. A card with assembly instructions is also included. Call 202.625.2150 to place an order for pick-up.

And check out this link from the Post's Going Out Gurus for details on Sweet Hope, an event coming up this Saturday hosted by Citronelle to collect toys for St Jude.
