French Friday’s with Dorie Haiku Catch-Up
Despite the Grand Dorista Powers That Be trying to be kind with their choices of assignments from “Around My French Table” by Dorie Greenspan due to the holiday season, I have been too lazy or just unable to participate much. I managed recently to cook up these three dishes as my time allowed and so I can share them with you in this catch up post, haiku style of course.
(Many thanks to those who subscibed to this blog, followed me on Twitter or Instagram to qualify for our first subscriber giveaway of Dorie’s great book. The winner announced within a week, say, by next, um, Friday? If you don’t win this time around I hope you will stay subscribed — that is all that is necessary to be entered for our next prize.)
Sublime cheese crackers
Appear to be guileless, but
Seemed quite appropriate here
It IS Dorie, natch.
Creamy Cauliflower Soup Sans Cream
Topped here with walnuts
Gruyere cheese and chili oil
No one misses cream
My favorite vegetable
Some might have a problem though.
Does it make you fart?
Chicken Apples and Cream á la Normande
Those creamy sauces and such
Did not want to like!
Could not help it though
I will eat this sparingly
(Normans must be fat)
These dishes were assignments for French Friday’s with Dorie, a cooking group working its way through Dorie Greenspan’sculinary tome “Around My French Table”. Generally we are discouraged from including the recipes in our posts. Wherever there has been significant adaptation by me or where the recipe has already been publicly posted by Ms. Greenspan or her publishers I will either include it here or provide a direct link. Please also feel free to contact me via the link provided on my page if you need any assistance finding French Friday with Dorie Recipes.
