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...

Pas peu fière…le Framboisier de Christophe Felder, Quite proud of myself…Christophe Felder’s Framboisier

Looks like a Daring Bakers Challenge, has the color and the shape of it, is as time-consuming, but it is not a DB Challenge. I have decided, all by myself, to push the limits of my pastry skills and try to make this wonderful cake. Well, actually, I did not really have choice : when one has 17 guests (!!), one can’t decently make little adorable individual desserts ! Now you’re going to ask me : what is a Framboisier and who is Christophe Felder ? A Framboisier is a cake made of two layers of dacquoise (mixture of whipped egg whites... [Lire la suite]

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]
