Gil is a strange guy. He likes to comment on EVERYONE’s canele posts and usually slams anyone who thinks that they may have some good advice to share with their readers – right or wrong. The funny thing is, he’s only been making canele for a couple of years (less professionally) and he got his start just like everyone else – through trial and error. I also find it interesting that he loves to criticize everyone else but has never done an instructional post of his own. And judging by some of the canele photos on his blog, there’s a good reason for that. I live in Philly and must admit that I have never tasted his canele but with that attitude, who would want to?
