Our Culinary adventure has begun!
The group of lovely women traveling with me for a tasting tour of Paris, assembled at my home in October for our first planning session. We will be heading to Paris in April so it is time to make a plan food and fun!
I served a simple dinner, on the menu, Parisian fare of course!
Traditional Quiche Loraine
Simple Green Salad with a Vinaigrette
French bread with freshly churned European style butter
and for Dessert Coeur a la Creme with Raspberry Coulis and fresh berries
I was excited to share that we are booked for a private class at the famed Le Cordon Blue where we will learn to make and assortment of French Viennoiserie. This is just 1 of 3 formal cooking classes we will be taking while in Paris, along with a host of other tasting experiences.
Stay tuned as more exciting details are revealed and contact me if you would like more information about future trips to Paris.
1 sheet puff pastry
1/3 cup milk or cream
1 cup grated Gruyere or Swiss cheese
1 ½ cups cubed ham
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degree. Unfold puff pastry sheet, using a rolling pin on a floured surface, eliminate the creases in the dough. Place the dough into a 9 inch pie plate allowing the corners to hang over. Sprinkle cheese and ham evenly over the bottom of the pie plate. In a mixing bowl combine eggs, salt, pepper and milk and beat until well blended. Pour egg mixture into the pie plate. Fold the corners of the pastry over the filling and bake for 40-45 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.
