Can you believe that Friends Food Family is 4 years old? I can't believe we have been cooking, baking and blogging for the past 4 years! When I look back at all the recipes we have made, and those we have blogged, I bet we have made well over 1000 different dishes.
This past October, Jeff and I were fortunate to visit Paris and Aix-en-Provence, France. It was an exciting trip filled with amazing works of art from Van Gogh and Cezanne (along with Renoir and Monet), incredible French cuisine and wonderful French wines. When we came home, we dove back into one of our favorite cookbooks from Dorie Greenspan called "around my french table".
We have blogged about many of Dorie's recipes from her Scallops with Caramel-Orange Sauce, her amazing (better than Strawberry Shortcake) Visitandine with Strawberries, and Spinach and Bacon Quiche, to one of the best corn chowders, Harvest Corn Soup with Lobster, Bacon and Scallions, and Speculoos Buttons. Then, there are numerous recipes we have enjoyed but never had time to post. Dorie's recipes are wonderful to make because they always remind us of comfort food. After spending time in France, you can understand the passion and flavors behind her recipes.
So, to complete this journey, we thought it would be fun to start our birthday celebration with a cookbook about French cooking. Since we love "around our french table", we thought it would be something you could enjoy.
