"Le Thon, c'est trop Bon !"

Sesame-crusted and Seared Tuna Fillets, with Orange-Ginger SauceSteaks de Thon mi-cuits en croûtes de sésame et Sauce Orange-Gingembre   A tasty, healthy and easy recipe, what do you think of that ? Tuna is quite an expensive fish but worth its price, so for those two reasons one has to be very careful about the cooking method in order not to spoil this pricey produce. I particularly recommend to sear the Tuna fillets, in other terms to cook it very quickly in a hot skillet so that the tuna is... [Lire la suite]

Mais quel est donc ce Cheesecake ? But what kind of Cheesecake is that ?

  In Strasbourg (Alsace Région) until Wednesday October 31st, I leave you in the company of this recipe which has been first posted in March 2007. A Strasbourg pour un mariage jusqu'au mercredi 31 octobre, je vous laisse en compagnie de cette recette initialement publiée en Mars 2007.When I was working in Advertising, we liked to invent 2-steps advertisements : first step (called « teasing ») with a mysterious message, anonymous most of the time and second step one week later (called “revelation”) with the full...

Soupe de choux-fleurs aux girolles et huile de truffe blanche, Cauliflower Soup with chanterelle mushrooms and white truffle oil

You don’t like Cauliflowers? Neither do I!! And this is precisely what makes this post interesting (well, I hope so). I had never tasted cauliflower soup before, and last month I found myself twice in situations where I could not skip it ! The first time, it was during my cooking class with Daniel Rose. As I am a well-behaved person (Thanks Mum and Dad), I courageously decided to taste the soup we had all made together and…wow, a pure delight, it was absolutely fantastic ! This impression was confirmed some days later... [Lire la suite]

A Cooking Class with Daniel Rose (Spring), Un cours de Cuisine avec Daniel Rose (Spring)

En français, en rouge et plus bas ! I hesitated for a long time whether to write this or not…Here was my dilemma : .the "good girl" in me wanted to share this great moment with you. However the "little devil" in me kept telling me “are you insane ? If you spread the word, you won’t be able to book another class for months!!!”. The fact that you are reading this shows what side won ! Sigh…I am too good to you…OK, let's start : upon your arrival, you are greeted by a warm smile …and a good glass of white wine (and it is only 11... [Lire la suite]

Pommes Compotées en Gelée de Coings , Grenades et Crumble Rose, “Compoted” Apples in Quince Jelly, Pomegranates and Pink Crumble

Verrine Rose pour le "Pink Ribbon Day", A Pink Recipe for "Pink Ribbon Day" As I have dreadfully missed all french-speaking events organized to support Breast Cancer Research, I have an opportunity to make it up today thanks to the australian foodblog “ecupcake”. The “mission” is to make a pink recipe to coincide with Pink Ribbon Day, which will take place in Australia on october 22nd. I think I can say, unless I am mistaken, that everyone knows at least one person who has suffered or is suffering... [Lire la suite]

Soupe de Carottes anisées aux Châtaignes, Aniseed Carrot Soup with Chestnuts

Some years ago, no self respecting housewife would have dared serving a soup to her guests. That would have clearly been a “faux-pas” and her friends would have thought of a total lack of respect. Yes, soup was too rustic a dish to cross the family circle in the strict sense. However, these days, there is not a single trendy restaurant which does not feature a soup, velouté or crème, hot, cold or even frozen on its menu ! Some restaurants actually only serve soups !!Chidhood soups, welcome back !! But do not forget... [Lire la suite]

Tea-biscuits Chocolate Cake for "Apple&Thyme", Gâteau au Chocolat aux Biscuits Bruns

Among all my sweet recipes, this one has a privileged place in my heart, it is the one I cherish the most : this recipe has been in my family for more than 3 generations (and 2 different countries), it is an heirloom handed down from mothers to daughters. And I am very proud to say that my daughter has promised me to share this recipe with her descendants; Phew, what a relief, I feel I have done my homework! Did my grandmother create it ? I don’t know, but one thing... [Lire la suite]

Tartelettes fondantes à l’orange, fond de pâte aux spéculoos, Creamy Orange Tartlets, “speculoos”-based dough

    At the “Pause-Café Bastille” restaurant, I am totally under the charm of their lemon-curd tartlet. Not for the lemon batter (excellent, though), but for the dough, which is unusually dark golden, and with a subtle cinnamon flavour. As I could not count on the Chef to enlighten me (he has joined the “I-don’t-want-to-share-my-recipes-with-you”’workforce), I had to brainstorm about it. Eureka ! Maybe adding speculoos* powder to the dough could be an interesting... [Lire la suite]

My Paris : #4 : Around Canal Saint Martin

As said in a previous post, the Eastern part of Paris is still little known by tourists, but it has gotten better since a couple of years. The Canal Saint Martin area is, like the Aligre Market area, a residential neighborhhod, full of “bobos” and an interesting mix of ethnic communities. I enjoy both of them very much…My husband’s pharmacy is close to the Canal, this explains why I am familiar with it.If you go there, you might feel like you had seen it before : well, one of the bridges upon the Canal is featured in the movie...
