French Fridays with Dorie – Gougères


Dorie has a new book!! Dorie has a new book!! What, you haven’t heard?? Then get your hind-end to the bookstore and pick it up stat! Around My French Table is a gorgeous love story between Dorie and Paris. Page, after page, after page of beautiful photos and wonderfully written recipes, with descriptions galore, take you on a trip to France and what seems like a seat at Dorie’s table. And of course, there’s a new group to cook along with all those great recipes… French Fridays with Dorie!

Which brings me to the first recipe, the gougère. Need a quick & easy appetizer? Have unexpected guests at the door? Late arrivals to a dinner party? Then look no further. In the very first few pages, Ms. Dorie serves up one of the easiest (and yummiest) puffs I’ve ever seen. Seriously, they’re like little balls of crack. The dough cooks up quick on the stove and then is cooled in a mixer while the eggs come to room temperature. Mix ’em in (followed by the cheese) and it’s ready for the oven! Really, what’s more easier than that? 🙂
