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!
I’ve already talked to you about Paquita and my family in Spain remember? This amazing recipe of Croquetas? Well, this one is from Paquita as too! I’m so happy and lucky to get these authentic recipes from her. It’s Celia and Gemma, Paquita’s daughters, who sent me their mom’s recipe. It is simply great! They are Sister to me and I love them more than I can say. They’re still feeding me even if we are far by sending me these recipes involving and evoking all the taste and flavours of Spain … my lovely home. They’re all there and I’m in Quebec. We are not together right now but when I close my eyes and take a bite, I feel like they were here with me and I feel the warmth and the love. It helps me to wait until the next visit.
