This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie Baking with Julia recipe was for a personal favourite of mine – madeleines (p 334).

French Fridays with Dorie: Pierre Herme’s Olive Sables

Having been skeptical before, then pleasantly surprised by a savoury sablé (David Lebovitz’ seaweed sablés) on another French Friday, this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Pierre Herme’s Olive Sables, p 12)was one I was looking forward to a lot.
