Les Petits Chefs make gougères from In the French kitchen with kids

We’re back! The Petits Chefs are back for the term! We had a huge amount of boys sign up (many many more than I can accommodate) which is heartening and hard at the same time. SO happy so many boys are interested in learning to cook, it’s hard because I can’t take everyone at the […]

French Fridays: Apricot (kernel) ice cream from My Paris Kitchen

I kind of left it too late to make this week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen. I’ll admit that I wasn’t looking forward to the finicky process of removing 50 (or 25 if I halved the recipe) apricot stones from the fruit then smashing them to reveal the […]
