Panettone Bread Pudding

January 12, 2021
Growing up my mom used to love bread pudding and has tried extremely hard to make us love it too. To no avail, I must admit. Many, many years had to go by for me to finally start loving this amazing dessert. It is simple, Delicious and a brilliant idea to repurpose leftovers: bread, panettone, easter cake, croissants, you name it. They all make one delicious dessert.

English Scones

January 10, 2021
Scones were part of my childhood: we had them often when we visited my grandfather, warm off course. We had them for teatime during the weekends and my parents' house: I distinctly remember standing impatiently next to the oven waiting for them to be ready. Obviously, I almost always burnt my mouth because I couldn't wait for them to slightly cool off 😊.

Pecan Shortbread Cookies

January 06, 2021
In France, these cookies are called "Diamants" which means diamonds. Simple slice and bake cookies, rolled in sugar. This pecan shortbread cookie recipe is my version of this classic French pastry treat. One of the things you learn in pastry school is how to make shortbread cookies. I remember that we were all nervous to see if we would have a little whole at the center after we’ve sliced them. That was not allowed 😊. They are easy to make and can be put together in no time! Hope you give them a try and love them!

Raspberry Linzer Cookies

November 30, 2020
This is one of my favorite cookies ever. So full of flavor. And the cookie dough just melts in your mouth: the perfect balance between flaky and airy! I remember when I learned how to make the Linzertorte at while attending baking school at Ecole Lenotre, and I immediately fell in love with it. At the end of each week, when that’s week course was over, we displayed the production of everything we had made during those days so that students from other courses could come and see our work. At the end we could take home our bounty of choice. I fought hard to get that Linzertorte. And I did. This linzer cookie version is even better 😊. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
