It is a super classic homey comfy stew that everyone loves! Best served on fresh pasta, or with a side of mash potaoes. For Paleo, you could do a celery root mash, or a side of roasted veggies, like those amazing Brussels Spouts I made last time!
Cheese souffle has been an all time favorite of ours when we were kids. My grand mother and my mum used to make it on a regular basis. Yep, even on school nights! It’s really not that hard, like most people think. I think a lot of homey cooks are worried about the flop effect, the nightmare on the table, when the beautiful puff is just deflating in front of your hungry guests… I understand..
For the French, the best part of Candlemas is obviously the crepes!!! In France we have different recipes whether you want to to enjoy them with a sweet or savory filling. Today we have done sweet crepes, and I’ll share with you my favorite recipe, it’s a rule of 3; infallible, easy to remember and delicious! We haven’t done savory crepes in a while, but you’ll find the recipe below
Talking epiphany, I think I had one recently: I need to write again… yeah, it’s been 2 and half month… sorry! What happened? Well life did caught up to me and it was just getting too much. I guess I owe you, my fellow readers, an explanation…
While everyone seem to be rushing into fall desserts with pumpkins and apples, I nostalgically stick with end of summer ingredients, and decide to ignore those first few leaves on my lawn…
Did you know that in France, French toast is called pain perdu, which means “lost bread”. It is called “lost bread” because it is a way to reclaim stale or “lost” bread. The hard bread is softened by dipping in a mixture of milk and eggs, and then fried. Make sense, right?
It’s done! I thought it would happen this year, but yeah! Pickling cukes is something I try to do every summer, because I do it the french way, wich is quite different from the regular american pickles.
“This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!”
That’s it, that will be the last post about France! On this last one, I am just sharing some of the best treats savoured on our trip. Whether at home, in a restaurant, or on our perfect day trip to La Rochelle, this beautiful sea side rampart city on the Atlantic. Food is always here, and never disappointing!!! And no, we did not …
Again, here is a load of pictures, bigger than words, to show you the great times that we had!
Will we ever want to go back home????
