Chocolate french toast - Pain brioché chocolat perdu

Here is my favourite use of the chocolate bread I presented recently. I love this variation of traditional lost bread (french toast). Using cream instead of milk just brings more onctuosity to this pan fried pain brioché.

Chocolate bread - Pain brioché chocolat

This slightly sweet chocolate bread from Italy is often served with creamy mascarpone cheese as a dessert or snack. The dark chocolate pieces add texture to this light loaf. I present the bread here as muffins size buns, this is simply because I prefer eating them as French toasts. The recipe for making chocolate French toasts will follow shortly.

Brioches triangles and lavender pastry cream - Triangles briochés et crème à la lavande

This is the first recipe From Pâtisserie by French pastry chef Christophe Felder that I tried. For those who know this renowned French pastry chef, chocolatier, ice cream and candy maker, there realy isn't anything I need to say, for you to know how amazing his creations can be. For others, who either don't know much about or, like me, just got to know him recently, I will simply mention that CF has received numerous awards throughout his career of a pastry chef.

Raspberry cheesemoelleux - Cheesemoelleux framboise

Here is a simple, very simple yet delicious combination of cheesecake and raspberries moelleux which is a very, very moist cake. You can use any fruits, such as strawberries, apricots, blueberries... There is no butter here, the cake is not too sweet (I don't love too sweet cakes anyway) but flavourful and very moist. It's quick and very simple to make as well; try it and you won't regret!


"Et tout d'un coup le souvenir m'est apparu. Ce goût, c'était celui du petit morceau de madeleine que le dimanche matin à Combray (parce que ce jour-là je ne sortais pas avant l'heure de la messe), quand j'allais lui dire bonjour dans sa chambre, ma tante Léonie m'offrait après l'avoir trempé dans son infusion de thé ou de tilleul.

Limonade à la fraise - Strawberry lemonade

L’un des (nombreux) avantages de l’été est l’arrivée des fraises ! J’en raffole tellement qu’il n’en manque presque jamais dans mon frigo. Et ce n’est pas pour me déplaire. Lorsqu’il fait autant chaud qu’ici à Zurich (30° le week end dernier), rien ne vaut une bonne limonade maison bien fraîche, comme celle que je vous propose ici. Et en plus c’est prêt en moins de 20 minutes, top chrono ! J’aime beaucoup la petite note fraîcheur supplémentaire qu’apporte la menthe. Menthe + citron + fraises = j’adore.

Quantité : 500 ml

Ingrédients :
300 g de fraises
100 g de sucre
Jus de 5 citrons
1 à 2 feuilles de menthe, selon le goût
Eau minérale, plate ou gazeuse
Menthe, fraise, pour la décoration

1. Mixer les fraises, le sucre, le jus des citrons et la menthe dans un blender jusqu’à obtention d’une purée fine.
2. Passer la purée obtenue au tamis afin de retirer tous les grains de fraises.
3. Verser la purée dans une bouteille et réfrigérer.
4. Au moment de servir, ajouter l’eau minérale selon vos goûts.


One of the many advantages of summer is finding strawberries easily everywhere! I so much love strawberries that I always make sure there is plenty in my fridge. Given how hot it has been in the past few days in Zurich, an old good homemade, fresh lemonade will always be very welcomed! Moreover, it’s ready in less than 20 minutes.
Makes: 500 ml
300 g strawberries
100 g sugar
Juice of 5 lemons
1 or 2 mint leaves, according to taste
Still or sparkling mineral water, to dilute
Mint and strawberries, to decorate
1. Put the strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and mint into a blender and pulse until smooth.
2. Strain the mixture through a sieve into a bowl.
3. Transfer to a jug and refrigerate.
4. When ready to serve, dilute the syrup with still or sparkling water according to your taste. Decorate with mint and\or strawberry.
