Petites gourmandises de Pessah/Some easy sweet treats for Passover

Guizadas aux amandes, Cookies aux pépites de chocolat, Congolais Almond "macaroons", Chocolate chip Cookies, Coconut Domes Il n'est pas trop tard pour cuisiner quelques gourmandises sucrées pour Pessah; après tout il nous reste encore 6-7 jours à "tenir" ! Comme chaque année, je m'étais tout d'abord rendue dans mon épicerie cachère à la recherche de quelques gâteaux qui nous aideraient à agrémenter nos petits-déjeuners et nos goûters durant cette semaine sans farine ni levure. Et puis, allez savoir pourquoi, cette année les... [Lire la suite]

Trio classique décliné en soupe...A classic"menage à trois" in a soup

Velouté d'Endives, Roquefort et NoixEndive, Blue Cheese and Walnut Soup "Creative"  : the least I can say is that this word is not for me. I have (and I have always had) a total lack of imagination...Why did I make an endive soup ? Because I saw it on a restaurant menu ! And I am not even mentioning the very classic "endive-blue cheese-walnut" "ménage  à trois", lol ! Aaah, how I wish I was as talented as the creative teams I used to work with when I was in the advertising business : I... [Lire la suite]

Salade de Poires Fraîches, Manchego et Noix caraméliséesPear, Manchego and Caramelized Walnuts Salad Dorian is one of the rare male french foodblogger, his stories are always full of humour. In one of his last posts, he told us how he had decided to go on a diet as a new year's good resolution and how, instead of a salad, he finally made..a chocolate and almond Tiramisu !! He should have read Oscar Wilde : "Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account".  I found his story... [Lire la suite]

Pour finir un repas exotique en beauté…A pleasant ending to an exotic meal…

Tarte à la Mangue et Citronnelle, pâte à la Noix de CocoMango and Lemongrass Tart with Coconut pastry Remember all the good things I said about american food magazines ? Now I have recently found out that the Australians,too, have amazing “foodzines” ! A friend of mine (thank you Sandra) recently brought to me a selection of gourmet magazines, and “delicious.” (the Australian version, not the British one) was among them. Rarely have I literally devoured a magazine like this ! A pure beauty : articles on such ... [Lire la suite]

Blue Cheese, Pear and Rosemary "Pastilla" Pastry, Pastilla au Bleu, Poires et Romarin

        Recette en français en bas de page !   "Pastilla" is originally a sweet savory Moroccan dish filled with pigeon meat (yes, the bird) and almonds. Now the word "pastilla" has become quite common (at least in France) and describes any sweet savory dish using brick or phyllo individual pastries. I found this recipe in a great cookbook (alas, only available in French) called "Epatez vos amis" which literally means "impress your friends" and it is true that each time I have made it, my...
