If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Flickr these past 7 weeks, you’ll have seem something you don’t tend to see on my social media feed (or, indeed, on this blog) very often, if ever. Frites.

Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Vanilla Mango Panna Cotta

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was a simple vanilla panna cotta served on top of a mango and lime purée.  Panna cotta is one of those desserts that always looks/ sounds much harder than it actually is – in fact the only thing you really need to worry about is respecting the amount of […]
