Sesame and Nigella Seeds Bagels

I’m a bread Lover and since my childhood, I’ve loved playing with dough. The stretchy and sticky texture, kneading,  the smell of the fresh yeast, the bubbles and watching the dough rise. If you’ve never tried to make bread before, you should at least try it once in your life! Last week, I missed Fiesta Friday…

La Tarte Tropézienne, Tropézienne Tart

The Tarte Tropézienne is not a tart as indicated by its name, but actually, a Brioche cut in half and filled with a Cream au Beurre and flavored with orange blossom water. This dessert whose recipe is still kept a secret has an interesting story; it was created by a Polish pastry chef who opened a Patisserie shop in…

Galettes with Orange Blossom Water

Here is an easy recipe of Galette made with flour, almond powder and of course with orange blossom water to enhance the aroma. We used to make them all the time when I was a child. Perfect recipe to bake…
