How excited was I to see Dorie’s Nutella Tartine (p 414-415) listed as this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe? Pretty excited that’s for sure! Apart from the fact that I have already made it and absolutely loved it, I just happened to have a gorgeous loaf of white bread on hand from this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie post that I knew would be perfect for this un-recipe. Plus, I happen to still have one precious jar of Christine Ferber jam (the jam we took a trip to Niedermorschwihr to find!) left from last summer’s stash. This one was a special one – Alsatian raspberry and 64% dark chocolate jam/ spread.
Since, you know, Nutella doesn’t really go with everything, I felt it might be better to pair this with some melted dark chocolate and I was right. The jam/ spread has a hint of chocolate only – it’s definitely more fruity than chocolatey so the added chocolate was a nice touch. Fortunately for me, I had frozen all but one slice of my white bread loaf otherwise I might have eaten the lot served like this. Chocolate, bread and fruit. A perfectly balanced breakfast, right?
