Murdoch Books 365 Challange: Cherry clafoutis

Stephane Reynaud cherry clafoutis eatlivetravelwrite.com

This is my second of four posts in the Murdoch Books 365 Challenge, where cooks across the world are working their way through Stéphane Reynaud’s whimsical culinary almanac – “365 Good Reasons to Sit Down to Eat.”

This dish was June 7th: Cherry clafoutis which I picked partly because I have never made a clafoutis in my life (despite having tasted many when I lived in France) but because I knew it would be the beginning of cherry season here in Canada and I was excited to buy (and eat) my first cherries of the season.

Want to know how it turned out? Head over to the Murdoch Books’ 365 Challenge Blog where you will find my post and others from those working their way through the book!

Interested in purchasing a copy of Stéphane Reynaud’s 365 Good Reasons to Sit Down to Eat? You can find it on Amazon or, for free worldwide shipping, buy it from The Book Depository.

    It looks wonderful Mardi. Glad that Dorie was able to come to your aid re pits or no pits! Hope to see various other fruit versions of this on your blog throughout the summer…can’t wait for blueberry season!

    I love the simplicity of clafoutis. Your pics looks wonderful and this challenge sounds interesting. (Sounds like a great book, too.)

    This is the first time I read about this cookbook. The clafoutis looks so good. I have never tasted a clafoutis before.

    I was lucky enough to score one of these clafoutis after visiting Mardi in Toronto. Let’s just say it didn’t last the trip home!

    This makes me want to run out and get some cherries so I can make this. I love making a clafouti – I make one with peaches and blueberries, but the cherries sound so good.

    Loved it! And I think it tasted better (and looked better) with pits in!

    Your clafoutis looks wonderful 🙂

  16. Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction June 15, 2011 at 07:45 #

    Oh my! This looks absolutely stunning… I can’t get my hands on that book fast enough 🙂

    Light and delicious! I like clafoutis, they’re good in all ways!
