Les Petits Chefs make Mini Strawberry Tarts (tartelettes aux fraises)

This week the Petits Chefs made a mini version of one of my favourite recipes from In the French kitchen with kids: Tarte aux Fraises. Over the years, the boys in my clubs have learned that for our one-hour sessions together, minifying recipes is sometimes what’s needed in order to complete  them in the time […]

Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Rose Fraisier

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe (Rose Fraisier, p 103) was a perfect way to celebrate the arrival (finally!) of local strawberries. The Fraisier is a traditional French dessert – “it’s always a layer cake and the layers are never covered, because you’re meant to see the berries, cut, so their beautiful centers are clearly […]

Tuesdays with Dorie: Espresso profiteroles

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was Espresso Profiteroles (p 411) which I admit I was quite excited about. In theory. However, I didn’t read the recipe last week, until I started making these on Sunday morning. Until I realised that I was supposed to make ice cream. Cinnamon ice cream. (Ick!). AND esprosso-flavoured choux […]
