Un peu de soleil du Maroc à notre table ! "Under the Moroccan sun"-like tagine !

Tajine d'Agneau aux Poires Moroccan Lamb Tagine with Pears Really, I swear the photos don't do justice to this dish. I can even say that if I had seen these pictures on someone else's foodblog, I would have thought : " my god, this lamb looks fatty !". Actually, what looks like fat is the thick pear sauce on top of the meat. I really was craving for comfort food : we have had an awful weather here; it has snowed three times in two weeks, which is very rare in Paris. Even though I do not have any moroccan origin, I...

La Salade des Bonnes Résolutions...The Good Resolutions Salad

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]

Muffins tout chauds pour le MM#11 ! Hot from the oven for Muffin Monday #11 !

Hey, but I am becoming a "Muffin Monday" addict ! Actually, my first participation was not a real one since I was a member of the jury and hence, I could not be a competitor. My second one was rewarded with a silver medal. So let's see what happens next...The theme chosen by Cuisine Plurielle, last edition's winner, was "colors and flavors of Autumn".This is why I have chosen to emphasize on two fruits which are at the top of the season : pear and walnut. To make an even more gourmet treat, I have decided... [Lire la suite]

Tatin aux Coings Epicés et aux Poires /Pears and Spiced Quince Tart Tatin

Tarte Tatin de Poires et de Coings pochés dans un Miel AniséTart Tatin with Pears and Aniseed Honey-poached Quinces I am finally back ! I haven’t totally recovered from my awful tracheitis, but I feel much better. Some days, I could hardly breathe, so I am relieved that I can now have an “almost” normal life. But, please, let’s forget this painful moment and enjoy with me the return of the quinces ! Ah, how I love them ! I like the fact that they look ugly, they are not easy to peel, long to cook, but they are so wonderful and... [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...
