Cookbook of the month: May


Yesterday we made some really delicious pastries. Noemi brought this french cookbook “Que faire avec le fromage frais” form Paris, when she visited a couple of weeks ago and now we finally got to try out some recipes. We got to make some puff party squares filled with mushrooms, feta cheese and parsley which are perfect for appetizers. And for dessert we made some small cakes in souffle molds. In this cook book they actually added clementines, but instead we used raspberries, because we´re a huge fan of them. This cookbook is mostly about pastries and dishes consisting of cheese, actually like its name says fromage frais, which means cream cheese.



This is what we have baked from this cook book:
