What I like about the last two weeks of August (except the fact that summer is coming to an end) is the lime that suddenly pops up everywhere. Hands down, lime is so much cooler than its big brother, the lemon. It’s not as sour as lemon and has a mature taste of tender bitterness. That’s why you can often find it in alcoholic drinks.
Coffee Mascarpone Macarons
It’s been a while since I last posted anything, and probably will not post anything else for a little while. It might be summertime that’s not pulling me into the kitchen to bake. Perhaps it’s the fact that I just moved into a new apartment, with a new kitchen, that probably threw me off my element. In order to get back to business I decided to tackle something familiar and close to my heart, macarons.
Chocolate Cake with Mascarpone and Coffee Chantilly
Mom’s Google’s chocolate cake! My love for baking started with fondant and decorating cakes. To be able to do that, I had to learn how to bake properly. I wanted the cake to taste as good inside as it looked outside. The first thing I did was run to my mom and ask about the secrets to her chocolate cake, which always comes out so heavenly and delicious.. a classic “mom’s chocolate cake”.
Three Chocolate Plaisir Sucré
The blog is still so young and I’m already writing another post about another brilliant creation by the French chef Pierre Hermé. This time it’s not about macarons. This time it’s about a cake that carries the name plaisir sucré, which means “sweet pleasure”. The chef couldn’t have chosen a more accurate name for this delicacy.
How to Temper Chocolate & Make Pralines
I always had a big love for chocolate, of any kind. Unfortunately, chocolate didn’t return the same love, and like almost every other failed love story, somehow you end up with a psychologist who tries to patch you up, but in my case, it was a dentist.
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
In the center of Jerusalem, down Ben Yehuda Street, there’s a small coffee shop called “Muffin Boutique“. Every time I walk in there I feel as if I have crossed continents and entered an Anglo-Saxon café, and not just because everyone is talking mostly in English over there.
Pistachio and Cherry Macaron Cake
It’s almost cherry season! What I love so much about cherries is that they go great with macarons. So I did a bit of research and finally came by an interesting recipe for a macaron cake in “Le Grand Manuel du Pâtissier”.
