Cheese Soup

It's been a year since I first heard of the international cheese soup contest. Being obessed with cheese this kinda got my imagination going. When I found out that my boyfriend's familly regularly went to this soup tasting festival, I felt kind of left out, why hadn't we gone yet? "Well, because there are food oriented festivals all the time, and how were they to know that I'd be particularly interested in this one?" They live in the south west of France, worldly reknown for its food and I'm interested in all of it!!! I finally... [Lire la suite]

Onion and Mushroom Quiche with a Bread Crumbs Crust

For me a good quiche is about two things: A. the dough and B. the silky texture of the egg mixture In this recipe I wanted to play with the dough. I didn't want a flaky puff pastry nor the savory crumble of "pâte brisé", I wanted something... crunchy. And that is how the breadcrumbs crust was born. Incidently I also had a lot of breadcrumbs that I needed to use... The dough was made in my food processor and this is how I did it: Mix: 1 cup of chickpea flour, 1 cup of bread crumbs, 1/2 tea of salt, 1 tea of oregeno. ... [Lire la suite]
