Haute Cuisine

Postby caroli on Tue Jun 16, 2009 12:51 pm

So I was thinking what are the things that interest me the most when I'm travelling and I arrived here...the Cuisine.
In general every country have their own dishes and deserts.

What I wanted you to do was to post here pics and recipes of your favourite dishes... specially the traditional ones!


BON APPETIT! :mrgreen:

Made from minced meat, onions, potatoes all rolled up in dough. Very good with yoghurt!

Hey caroli (and all people :) ) !! I think that's a fabulous idea !! (I love cooking :wink: )...
... 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 :

Far Breton

Ingredients :

-125g flour
-100g sugar
-2 eggs
-1/3 L milk
- butter, prunes (optional)

Method :

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...

Enjoy !!! :mrgreen:

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... :evil:
-----> 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 ??? :roll:

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

Image

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 :D 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!
