The French just love the combination of blue cheese and pears. Intensity and sweetness at the same time. Here with some nuts and a bit of honey. It’s delicious crispy, served warm with a green salad.
This recipe is both light and very tasty. Pears are roasted with spices (you can feel saffron, star anise and cinnamon at the same time in one bite!) and cream cheese is whipped with vanilla (but not too much as we want to keep cream cheese flavors).
Cheese balls, coated with dried fruits and walnuts, nicely wrapped in zucchini. Wouldn’t those bites be tempting as a tapas to grab with a drink before dinner?
A very tasty and smooth cream that can be served either as a side with beef or poultry for example or as a soup, depending on how much cooking water you add. A perfect dish for cheese lovers.
Cubed cucumber fried in olive oiled seasoned with flavorful pepper, and fresh goat cheese wrapped in filo pastry. Those delicious one bite appetizers are both crispy, crunchy and sweet at the same time.
An easy, quick to prepare and healthy mixed salad, often prepared by French families.
The French just love traditional dishes made of melted creamy cheese with potatoes and deli meat. Among those, tartiflette is the perfect meal in winter! Called gratin in French, it's made of potatoes, reblochon cheese and bacon.
Serve these small cheese puffs, or Gougères, as appetizers.
Each time I prepare gougères, the whole dish disappears in a few seconds, the children suddenly become very interested in what the adults are eating and grab them one after the other, even if they are not supposed to.
