Traditional French Fouace Nantaise, a brioche heady with rum and a hint of orange flower water.
The Fouace Nantaise, the Nantes’ fougasse, is a brioche-type bread, very gently sweetened, redolent of rum with a faint hint of orange, and shaped like a macaron or a 6-armed star. Traditionally eaten dunked in local Muscadet wine, it also is the perfect breakfast treat.

Summer.
Quiche are fabulous hot from the oven, warm or at room temperature. Or even chilled. Perfect for dinner, lunch, picnic or brunch. I recently made 2-inch mini quiches for a cocktail party filling three ways: gorgonzola + apple, cherry tomatoes + goat cheese, bacon + gruyère.

O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind? – Percy Bysshe Shelley

An update from Chinon and a spectacular holiday dessert.

The Saint-Honoré, a spectacular pastry names after the patron saint of bakers, is a ring of pastry cream-filled puffs (choux) sitting atop a base of puff pastry, the center of the ring of choux filled with more pastry cream and topped with a simple, lightly sweeted whipped cream. It takes time to create and assemble, and although it seems complicated, taken step-by-step it is rather simple and quite fun to make. And it is so very much worth the e...

I think we all need Cocoa Molasses Chew Cookies right about now, don't you?
Winter has a way of making me want to pull out molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, those ingredients that add warmth, an earthy comfort to baked goods.
