Beer Battered Fried Sage Fritter

Beer Battered  Fried Sage Fritter

This is a unique one, I know. But you gotta trust me when I say it’s soooo good! The sage leaves turn into the best savory chips you could ever imagine. I haven’t met any yet, that didn’t like them.

Apple Galette

Just in time for fall, ya’ll! This is another one of those desserts that looks all fancy (it is French after all) and gets all the ‘oohhss and ahhhs’ but really it couldn’t get any easier.

Rose Endive Tartlets

Rose Endive Tartlets

My main course came together quick and easy today which allowed me to whip up these cutie-patuie rose tarts.

I love a fancy food that's not at all difficult to make and these pretty little appetizers/side/starters fit the bill. They take no time at all and only require 4 ingredients.

TOMATES FARÇIES ‘À LA PROVENÇALE’ aka Stuffed Tomatoes

TOMATES FARÇIES ‘À LA PROVENÇALE’ aka Stuffed Tomatoes

On this very day, one year ago I was flying back from Médoc, France where I spent the better half of a week learning French cuisine (and we may have had a little wine). So I felt this day needed a little celebrating, and what better way to celebrate the anniversary of a culinary adventure...make something I picked up while in France.

When I was in France back in July of 2017 I learned to make this tart at a cooking workshop. Since returning home I've probably made it 20x. It's THAT good and THAT easy.

Celeriac Velouté aka Celery Root Soup

Celeriac Velouté aka Celery Root Soup

I know what you might be thinking... Celery has a root and you can cook with it, and it's good? Who knew, right? I didn't. I don't even like celery, I can't stand it. And I don't really care for bacon either but somehow, someway this becomes a soup I thoroughly enjoy. This is why I will eat anything once. I sincerely have FOMO when it comes to food. I can't bare the thought that I might miss something spectacular.

Sea Scallops With Cauliflower Purée And Capers

Sea Scallops With Cauliflower Purée And Capers

This recipe is one of my all-time favorites. I love scallops anyway but it's something about this dish that elevates the experience.  The mix of sweet from the orange and the savory of the capers all together atop silky smooth cauliflower, it really is perfection on a plate.

French Cherry Clafoutis

French Cherry Clafoutis

This recipe comes from one of my favorite bloggers and cookbook authors: Mimi Thorisson, I highly recommend perusing her blog, Manger, and I dare you to not fall in love with the dreamy images of a perfect little town and this beautiful family living in southern France. All the photographs you see on the blog were taken by Mimi's husband, it's truly storytelling at it's best. Their story, the food, the blog, the cookbooks... c'est magnifique!
