In general every country have their own dishes and deserts.

Hey caroli (and all people ) !! I think that's a fabulous idea !! (I love cooking )...
... France... let's go to Brittany !... I thought I just had to share the recipe of the famous "Far Breton" (in my opinion, it's the best recipe (or one of the best anyway...)).... so here it is :
-1/3 L milk
- butter, prunes (optional)
Mix together the flour, sugar and eggs (avoiding lumps). Little by little, add in the milk.
Butter generously a dish ( I use a square dish measuring 20 x 20 cm) and pour the mixture into it.
Scatter the prunes in the mixture and put 3 or 4 (big) knobs of butter over it.
Bake in the oven at 180°C for 40-45 minutes ( ! keep an eye on your "far"...)
Allow to cool before serving ( lukewarm or cold...)
*It's a dessert...
PS : ---> Has anybody got THE recipe of the best ever cookies ??? I know, I'm hard to please (in that case) but I'm also a bit fed-up, I've tried a thousand recipes... and never found the one...
-----> caroli, do you speak french fluently ??
------> I'd like to show how it looks like to you but I can't post a photo !!! Could anyone help me, please ???

I had forgotten about this thread! Thank you so much for your recipe, might aswell try it one of these days You can find a lot of valuable info on "how to post a picture", somewhere here (under the "everyday chat")..also, no I don't speak French fluently..3 years didn't take me far
I don't really want to use Photobucket (to log in, in fact) so I think I'm gonna leave a link here... It might work... (???) We'll see...

Foooood!!! love cooking and eating! However...dutch food is really not my thing. I eat italian most of the time.
My favorite dish is Pasta alla Norma. It always lurs all my friends to my house...the table is full when they find out I am cooking up a pan of Pasta alla Norma
Before I became a Vegetarian, this was my absolute favorite. Sicilian Swordfish!
yep, it is Salty Ricotta. It is hard to get. There is a cheese guy here, that is a 2 hours drive away. I email him and he gets me the gold There is also Ricotta al Forna for the Pasta alla norma, but I don't like it to much. It's a little heavy on the stomache.
Being a vegetarian is easy! there is to much good food to discover. I have seriously eaten at expensive restaurant, where the people at my table got jalours at what was on my plate. If you see, read or find out how animals are being treated and get slaughtered, there is no way that you can consciencely eat meat. that and the fact that there doesn't need to be hungre in the world if people would just stop eating meat. All the grain that now goes to the animals that we eat, could go to the people that don't have any food. Meat is also the cause of nasty ilnesses, filled with hormons and Antibiotics.
Do I miss Meat...sure! there is lots of things I truly love and miss. Like Pastrami, Breseola ( god I love that stuff) and mouthwatering carpaccio! I am not perfect yet, because I do sometimes eat non vegetarian cheeses and sometimes candy and yoghurt that is non vegetarian...I am not perfect, but I did stop wearing leather! Oh and I am not pale looking and weak in the knees. I have regular check ups being a blood donor and I am perfectly healthy!
