Salade Ovalie (Fr-Eng)

February 2nd, 2014 · No Comments

Série: Recettes pour Jean & Renée Peyrafitte —English below— Le magret c’est léger! — surtout si on enlève la graisse après sa cuisson. Voilà une belle salade pour regarder la deuxième mi-temps du match de rugby (France-Angleterre)—que j’avais oublié mais que ma copine Ariane m’a rappelé. Qui dit rugby pense Sud-Ouest; qui dit Sud-Ouest pense […]

The picture above was taken on September 28-29 at The Taste of France where I had the pleasure of MC’ing the main stage for the entire weekend.

Coque or Gâteau à la Broche

July 24th, 2011 · 6 Comments

This was a dream come true. Since I was a little girl I have admired & loved this cake.  It is made for very special occasions like weddings, christenings, special birthdays or anniversaries. I found an entry for “coque” in an old Gascon dictionary that says “qu’èm invitats a la còca” meaning “we are invited to […]

My dad always calls it a gratinée, but it is generally called une soupe à l’oignon, here in the USA it is mostly known under the name “French onion soup.” Whatever you call it, it is a delicious and incredibly restorative soup.  Actually they used to serve it at my dad’s night club at the […]
