Pot au Feu (Bouilli Québécois)

A traditional beef stew with French origins, cooked slowly with loads of veggies for a memorable family dinner. As a kid, I used to visit my grandparents once or twice a year.

Cheese and Thyme Soufflé is a pure airy, fluffy bite into a cloud of cheese and a touch of thyme. You can use your favorite cheese, I wanted to try it with roquefort at first but then I finally went for the queen of cheeses: Gruyere! Everyone that knows me… knows I have a thing… Continue reading Cheese and Thyme Souffles
