Recipe of the Month – Tartiflette

Recipe of the Month – Tartiflette

Recipe of the Month – Tartiflette I read about this dish, which was new to me, in a memoir by a transplanted American living in France. (Samantha Vérant’s book, How To Make a French Family, is coming out in April.)

Recipe Of the Month – Pan-Fried Camembert Sandwich

(As my father used to joke, “Is the Pope Catholic?) I do know how lucky I am … Continue reading

May Recipe Of The Month-Baked Fish

Yes, I know grilling season is upon us, but since I’m an apartment dweller, I am in the habit of baking fish, which seems simpler than pan-frying although I love that too. I have two preferred methods for the baking and I like them equally: First is to generously coat the fish in spices (try … Continue reading
