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.

Chestnuts are children’s best friends

Chestnuts are not exclusive to savory dishes, they also make great desserts. The “chesnuts spread” is wonderfully sweetened and rich and can be a good source of energy  for (gourmet) children practicing a sport  or before an important exam. This is why this spread is also sold in tubes in France so you can sip it anyplace, anytime…I remember that I used to have 2 or 3 tubes of chestnuts spread in my school bag  in case I suddenly felt tired, which, strangely enough,  happened very often !   Now it is a...
