Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Marquise au Chocolat

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe brought back sweet memories for me. When I was little, my mum used to make a dessert called “Chocolate Catastrophe”.

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is all about simplicity.  This Brown Butter and Vanilla Bean Weekend Cake (p6)  is a great advertisement for simple ingredients shining.

#52NewFoods: Avocados

For this week’s #52NewFoods Les Petits Chefs worked with  avocados. To be honest, I thought this would be an easy sell – I mean, I guessed many of them loved guacamole so it wouldn’t be too hard to convince them to work with it. At the beginning of the session, we asked the boys who […]
