L'inénarrable Gâteau au Yaourt...The ineffable Yogurt Cake...

Gâteau au Yaourt, Mascarpone et Framboises, coulis de FramboisesRaspberry and Mascarpone Yogurt Cake, Raspberry coulis I know no one around me who does not have a sweet memory linked to yogurt cake made with his/her mum or his/her Granny. Baking was not as precise as today, and it was so much fun for us to measure ingredients with the help of the actual yogurt tubs (2 tubs of sugar, 4 tubs of flour,...). And there are so many versions of this cake that you can't really get bored of it : with fruits, marbled, topped with... [Lire la suite]

Pas peu fière III…la Dacquoise Citron Vert de Christophe Felder, Quite proud of myself III…Christophe Felder’s Lime Dacquoise

Or how to end Passover with a touch of class...Ou comment rompre Pessah avec classe... Actually, the first part of the "end of Passover" meal looks more like a pique-nique party with mediterranean flavors than a festive dinner : the tradition is to have sandwiches made with italian bread specially bought in Belleville, a popular part of Paris, and stuffed with sophisticated ingredients (!) like canned tuna in olive oil, potatoes, hard boiled eggs, black olives and of course a home-made "slata mechouia", a...

Tartare aux 3 Tomates et aux Framboises/Three-tomato Tartare with Raspberries

I came across this starter as it was mentioned on the blackboard of a new restaurant in the 10th arrondissement, close to Hubby’s pharmacy. Since I have not ordered it (I chose a delish grilled squid, but the review will come very soon), I have no idea how it looked and tasted like, but I found it so interesting that I decided to create it in my own kitchen. The idea is quite basic : to propose in the same glass, three kinds of tomatoes, different in shape, color and taste. The textures and the seasonings would also be... [Lire la suite]

Sur un air d'Opéra...au Chocolat Blanc/White Chocolate Opéra Cake

Challenge Daring Bakers du mois de Mai 2008May 2008 Daring Bakers' Challenge Phew…I think this Opéra Cake has been the most sophisticated and complex Cake I have ever made. But the harder it is, the prouder you feel when you see the final results, isn’t it ?When I first read the recipe, I was extremely surprised by the absence of coffee. For me, ze French Daring Baker, it was an offence made to my country of birth, lol ! But, after tasting it, I have to admit that... [Lire la suite]

Panna Cotta Ispahan à ma façon, My very own Ispahan Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta Framboises, Litchis et RoseRaspberry, Litchi and Rose Panna Cotta This is not exactly the recipe I wanted to share today. Actually, it was supposed to be a panna cotta, but topped with a decadent orange and passion fruit compote, recipe of Pierre Hermé. But, to my big surprise and disappointment, I could not find passion fruits in my local market. In order to keep my recipe with a Pierre Hermé’s touch, I have decided to make a Ispahan version with raspberries, litchis and... [Lire la suite]
