Tomato Tarte Tatin

I have found another gem of recipe. I think I told you before but in case you missed it I like to read French blogs.

Then after poking round I found his Fillet of Sole Riviera with Pico de Gallo, I read the recipe, but then the next day I saw him make it on his show. Continue reading

Cherry Clafoutis

It is cherry season – please make a Cherry Clafoutis. You can make a Cherry Clafoutis in a non-metal pan, or like I did in individual ovenproof ramekins. Butter, then sugar pan/ramekins, line the bottom with cherries, pour the batter over the cherries and bake. The ingredients are almost in all kitchens with the exception the fruit and whipping cream.
