Cheese and charcuterie boardWhy not greet your friends and family with a homemade cheese and charcuterie board?
My tip: buy French cheeses at Trader Joe’s (Camembert, Brie, Comté, Délice de Bourgogne etc.) as well as a jar of cornichons. Add some almonds, jam or honey, dried fruits or grapes and above all, don’t forget the bread!
A French version of mac and cheeseMac and Cheese is definitely a traditional American dish, but you can easily add a French twist to any dish where cheese is involved. You only have to replace the cheddar with a French cheese. For Mac and Cheese, I would go with a yummy Comté!
My tip: add some walnuts and use apple cider vinegar instead of wine vinegar in the dressing.
My tip: don’t forget the nutmeg and try to replace the potatoes with sweet potatoes, it’s délicieux!
