In these times of confinement, I have never cooked so much. Cooking has always been a passion for me, but right now I wanted to go back to recipes from my childhood, simple things that require very few ingredients. Here is one of my favorite recipes: Les Madeleines.
I give you the recipe here:
Ingredients for 24 madeleines:
-150g of sugar
-200g of flour
-8 g baking powder
- 100 g of melted butter
- 50 g of milk
In a container, pour the powdered sugar over the eggs.
Add 3/4 of the milk
Mix the flour and baking powder together.
Add the melted butter and then the rest of the milk. Let sit for 30 minutes.
Bake in buttered madeleine molds in an oven preheated to 250 ° C then kiss the temperature at 200 ° C.
Cook for 10 minutes, until the pretty bump forms and they are golden. Cheers !
The Tuileries Fair is a family and traditional fair which takes place this year from June 21 to August 25, 2019. It is held each summer in a place steeped in history, the Tuileries Garden. It is organized by Marcel Campion, the same man who manages the Foire du Trône, operated the ferris wheel formerly installed on Place de la Concorde and organized the Christmas market at the bottom of the avenue des Champs Élysées.
The Tuileries funfair hosts more than 60 fairground attractions (including 20 rides), wooden horses, ice palace, bumper cars, ghost trains, rifle shooting, duck fishing, trampoline, slide, climbing ...
The carousels are undeniably part of the Parisian landscape as are the metro entrances, the lampposts, the Wallace fountains ... You can admire them everywhere in Paris (at the Jardin des Plantes, Place Saint-Pierre in Montmartre, Parc Monceau , Place du Trocadéro ...) and immerse ourselves in the Paris of yesteryear.
I particularly loved shooting this wedding because of Its beautiful decor. The bride is a litterature teacher and wanted her wedding to have a vintage and literary atmosphere. The rings were placed in a hole made in a vintage book, lovely !
Located at 2 rue de l'Abreuvoir, in the heart of Montmartre, at the foot of the vineyards, La Maison Rose attracts attention for its picturesque side, its pink color and its green shutters. This house belonged to Laure Gargallo, who was one of the models of Pablo Picasso during his blue period. She painted it pink and transformed it into a small canteen for her artist friends. Its name is also inspired by one of the paintings of the painter Maurice Utrillo dating from the 1900s. Today the Maison Rose is a trestaurant which offers a small menu but composed only of local products and saion.
I had some black chocolate in my kitchen so I decided to make some mendiants with It. It's very quick and simple to do and you can put everything you want on them : nuts, dried fruits, pistachios... I put praline roses, dried fruits and nuts on mine. I just melted some chocolate, and with a spoon I did some circles, and added some pralines roses, nuts and dried fruits and I put It in the fridge for 30 minutes and It's ready to eat !
The covered passages are a Parisian invention. They were built between 1820 and 1840 to allow Parisians to be able to shop sheltered from the weather. These galleries with magnificent glass roofs and wrought iron lampposts became the meeting place for the Parisian bourgeoisie. And now, they allow us to plunge back into an era that is unfortunately over.
