Braised Chicken with Olives and Peppers

What’s with the recent backlash against the word “foodie”?? A recent issue of one of our favorite cooking magazines recently went on a minor diatribe about this “catchall word for people who appreciate a great meal and what goes into it” and it’s not the first we’ve seen…The editor claims that the word is “goofy” […]

Dark Chocolate Pot de Creme

I have written before about how much I need and love my pastry gurus, and Joanne Chang of Flour bakery is certainly one of them. Right now I’m getting inspired by her newest book, Baking with Less Sugar, but her first cookbook, Flour, is one that I have used for so many delicious desserts here […]

Dark Chocolate Espresso Mousse Torte

Photos by Greg Nesbit Photography I have what I like to refer to as my “pastry gurus. ”  These are the recipe-writers who not only care enough to only publish recipes for things that are yummy, but also to write their recipes and edit them so that they WORK. Many people tell me that they […]

Breton Buckwheat Galettes

When you hop out of your vehicle and wander through the medieval walls into the center of Saint-Malo, Britttany, it is quickly clear that there is no doubt what you are going to be eating for your next meal:  Galettes & Crepes!  Literally every other storefront is a Creperie and each follow a very similar, […]

Franck’s Bouillabaisse

I guess that part of the appeal of cooking and baking is the magic part.  Watching or assisting in transformations is really what it’s all about.  When I was a little girl I would hunt out the tv section of the newspaper to find when Julia Child’s The French Chef was going to be on.  […]

Orange Almond Cake

Orange Almond Cake (GF) Photos by Greg Nesbit Photography This moist, flavorful, and versatile cake has been one of my favorites since my sous-pastry chef shared it with me many years ago at Lespinasse.  I’ve used it in countless wedding cakes, as a stand-alone tea cake, and as a component in mousse tortes or as […]

The Ultimate Homemade Lemoncello

Once you start making things from scratch for yourself, it starts to be a bit obsessive.  We’ve worked Lemoncello into our repertoire gradually.  A friend who is a flight attendant took up the adorable habit of bringing us bottles of delicious, creamy lemoncello whenever she flew to Italy.  Then another friend decided to hand out […]

Buttery Breton Sablee Cookies

Photos by Greg Nesbit Photography Franck loves to say that I’m living the dream:  “Every American woman wants to be married to a French guy!”  I like to humor him, but I had enough experiences in professional kitchens with French guys way before I even met Franck that for a long time I figured that […]

Warm Dark Chocolate Tart

Le Gavroche’s Warm Dark Chocolate Tart with Einkorn Crust Photos by Greg Nesbit Photography What’s the deal with “secret recipes”?  Not only is the concept morally unsound to me, but it’s completely redundant:  if no one ever shared great recipes, where would we be today?  Isn’t the very root of the word recipe “to receive”??  […]

Blueberry-Lemon Scones: a recipe with photos

Fruit, Oat & Einkorn Scones Makes 16 scones Adapted from Linda Rondinone, Block Island, RI Photos by Greg Nesbit Photography In an industry which specializes in hot and crazy, you have to be pretty selective about your jobs.  It’s rare to stumble into a dream job: a kitchen with a window and a decent amount […]
