Une entrée tout en fraîcheur...So cool, so fresh...

Soupe glacée concombre-pommes vertesCucumber and granny smith chilled soup France has its local "Jamie Oliver" (young, good-looking and enthusiastic Chef) : his name is Cyril Lignac. He became famous with a reality show about a Chef (him) looking for a restaurant to buy and staff to help him. As he was quite charismatic and charming, M6 channel decided to hire him for many other cooking shows. Now, he has two restaurants in Paris (the trendy Le Quinzième and the bistrot-style Chardenoux, a few blocks from Aligre... [Lire la suite]

Le surprenant Cake au Vin blanc de Bruno Doucet...A quite puzzling white wine loaf cake...

Cake au Vin Blanc de la maman de Bruno DoucetMum Doucet's White Wine Loaf Cake Ah the French and their wine !! What do you think of that : a cake dedicated to children, with white wine ! It is one of Bruno Doucet's* favorite cake since his mother would make it for him when he was a kid, for his breakfasts or as an afternoon snack.I found this recipe in his cookbook, from which I have already shared a recipe, and it immediately caught my attention. Yes, I know, I bought this book more than a year ago, but you know, I am a very... [Lire la suite]

Retour en toute simplicité...A very simple return to cooking...

Clafoutis Cerises/Amaretto à la RicottaCherry,  Amaretto and Ricotta Clafoutis I am so confused ... I do not know what to say, what excuse to find my unforgivable absence ... As you know, I had already taken a few breaks from this blog, but that long, never ...And may I dare to tell you that I am going on vacation very soon ? I am afraid my real "come-back" will have to wait until...september (OMG !). Okay, you may say, but what was the reason ?  Well, probably a bit of weariness, and the fact that I often...

Apéro d'inspiration Bourguignonne...Snacks with a Burgundian flair

Gougères au gruyère et aux herbesGruyere and Parsley Gougères (cheese puffs) Is there a better host than the one who offers his guests home-made savory snacks before dinner ? I don't want to put any pressure on you and I know it is much easier to open a peanuts can or a pack of manufactured crackers (a thing that I have myself done many times), but really, if you have time -and patience-, treat your guests with some little treasures coming directly from your oven. It is such a good way to make everyone feel "spoilt"... [Lire la suite]

Trois p'tites pommes et puis s'en vont...! The apple of my p-eye !

Tarte Fine aux Pommes simplissimeSuper easy Thin Apple Tart Those of you who follow me on Facebook know that I was recently offered an apple peeler and since then, I have had so much fun with it !!  I'm crazy about it, and it is my daughters' new favorite toy, too !! I know this utensil is far from being a novelty and some of my readers even pointed out that their grandparents already owned one a long time ago, but still, I'm fascinated by the way it so easily peels, cores and slices apples. Now, the question is : what do... [Lire la suite]

Blanc comme...une asperge ! As white as...asparagus !

Crème d'Asperges BlanchesCream of White Asparagus Soup So far, I have always found white asparagus quite...suspicious ... I thought their taste was just like their color : bland, neutral, in other words nothing to write home about ! And the fact that I am the  biggest fan on earth of their green "cousins" does not help, I know... On the other hand, I have always loved white soups (cauliflower, endives,...) : I find them very elegant, very french actually, lol. So why not try a white asparagus soup ? My verdict :...
