Being stuck home made me try a lot of stuff I never tried before. The global crisis we’re facing right now makes me feel like I need to be comforted and there is no better way for me, to bring a bit of joy, happiness and feeling of lightness than cooking some good recipes. It works all the time! As I miss Bordeaux really bad these days, and because it will probably take quite a long time before we can return, I decided to bake something that will bring me back in France. Bread and chocolate… Can’t ask for better!
Today guys, it’s Banh Mi day! It’s amongst Jean-Félix’s favourite day. He’s begging for some Banh Mi almost every week! What can I say?? I think they’re pretty good! HA-HA-HA You can make Banh Mi with so, so, so many things. You have a lot of possibilities. Mine are made with pork meatballs. Those flavourful little meatballs are the secret of my crazy Banh Mi. (Ok… One of my secrets… HA-HA-HA but don’t worry, I will tell you everything)
As you may know, Jean-Félix is a bartender. A crazy good one by the way and I don’t say that because he is the love of my life. No, no, no! I say that because I think he is amazing and I think all of you should have the chance to taste a cocktail made by him once in your life! I know most of you are far from us so please make yourself a treat and watch Jean-Félix’s videos on our YouTube channel, Truffles On The Rocks. That way you will be able to make a gorgeous drink by yourself and have the feeling that we are making a toast altogether!
Japchae is a very popular Korean dish. It’s a festive meal and they serve it during their biggest holidays. For me, every day should be holidays so, I try to have Japchae as often as I can! HA-HA-HA Plus, it’s so easy to make and it’s absolutely delicious. The funny part is that you can enjoy it cold or hot. You decide! Honestly I prefer to eat it hot. All ingredients are individually prepared and cooked so it makes it even more simple.
The Italian wedding soup arrived in my life about 15 years ago. My uncle had a sandwich shop in Quebec City and he used to serve this soup as an appetizer. It was not a homemade soup (Shame on him … it is so easy to make HA-HA-HA) but it didn’t matter, I was in love with the flavours, the simplicity and the lovely little pasta (that were always overcooked … lol). So, as we all know that everything homemade is always the best, I decided to make my own.
As you know, we’ve been living in Bordeaux for 1 month and half now. We have such beautiful ingredients here that we don’t have in QC. It’s insane and it gives us so much inspiration to cook and to make cocktails. The first time I saw “Coquillettes” it was on an Instagram picture from the feed of a Bordeaux blogger. She was having brunch and she made a story about it. I asked her what it was but… No answer from her. Whatever HA-HA-HA!!! I did my own research and I found out what was the base of “Coquillette” recipes. So I created this one just for you with all my love!
Hello loves, it’s been a while since I put any recipe here. Sorry about that. We were busy at preparing our trip to Bordeaux. As it’s a long trip, about 3 months, it was a lot of preparation. Now we are perfectly installed in Bordeaux so I won’t let you down anymore. I swear! To be forgiven I go with sweet treats here! HAHAHA I know how to be forgiven… Right?
When I saw this meal for the first time, I was obsessed by the beauty of it. When I knew more about what it was I was obsessed about everything. What a fantastic dish. Simple, tasty and healthy. It only takes a couple of minutes to create an unbelievable culinary experience. Jean-Felix his not a huge fan of plain yogurt so to please him, I added just a little bit of honey in his part! It’s all it took to make him enjoy that meal as much as I did … and you know what? It was really good. I think maybe next time I will put some in the entire recipe. HA-HA-HA
These little things are absolutely fantastic. The way they pop up in the oven brings a huge smile on my face and lots of child happiness in my heart! I don’t know if you have any kids but as both of us are, I can promise that this is the perfect recipe to make with them! They will love to sit in front of the oven window and watch them change. It’s exactly what we did. HA-HA-HA What??? Don’t judge … I told you … we are kids.
This bread is totally amazing! As polyvalent Zucchini is, this bread is as well. Sometimes I just eat it as a dessert, but I also use it during dinner or even as an appetizer. It goes perfectly with cheese, little pate or with a cozy winter soup. I think it’s the way I prefer this bread. You know … a garlic soup, old cheese, little pate and this amazing zucchini bread! OK I’m drooling on myself now! I will finish this post and will make all of this for dinner right away after. HA-HA-HA This is totally me … can’t talk about food and not going totally starving.
