french onion soup

Whenever the days get a bit cooler, I naturally start craving foods that are warm, rich and comforting. Don’t you? A nice bowl of soup always does the trick and the perfect soup that came to my mind was the classic French Onion… so rich in flavor from both the caramelized onions and beef stock and so warm and inviting with the toasted baguettes slices topped with melted, bubbling Gruyère cheese… just the right slightly sweet, salty and nutty complement to the soup. It’s real [...]

homemade strawberry conserve with cinnamon

If you’ve ever had jam made by Christine Ferber, then you know just how perfectly wonderful a simple jam can be. I was doubtful at first, having been a child that grew up on Smucker’s, but I figured since Pierre Hermé, the macaron king, had it on display in his store, it was worth a try.

These super sliders are so irresistible, you seriously can’t eat just one. The burgers are made with ground sirloin and get an extra flavor punch from the garlic, parsley, tomato paste, and Parmigiano-Reggiano. It’s grilled and topped with a generous slice of Taleggio cheese, a light drizzle of sweet, reduced balsamic vinegar, crisp pancetta, [...]

petite brioche

Every now and then I come across something that tastes so good, I just know it can’t be good for me. I try to convince myself that I really shouldn’t know how it’s made or what goes in it, cause after all, ignorance can be bliss. Do I really need to know how much butter goes into a croissant? or in that slice of red velvet cake from my favorite bakery? or how much cream is in that heavenly chocolate mousse? For better or for worse, culinary school [...]
