February Schedule

Yet another delectable month coming our way.

I do want to let you all know that I made an administrative override in pursuit of balance: 2 main dishes won and as much as I, too, want to make that soufflé, the Merveilleux were only one vote shy…and we haven’t made many desserts from this cookbook.

Thus, the February schedule:

Friday, February 3: Coq au vin (177)

Friday, February 17: Merveilleux (281)

September Schedule

Another great month ahead for us!

September 2: spiced meatballs with sriracha sauce (p. 74)

September 16: gazpacho with herbed goat cheese toasts (p. 121)

September 30 (inaugural “Extra Edition”): sardine spread (p. 78)

Remember that the Extra Edition is an optional Friday.

August Schedule

Okay, the votes are in with 2 clear winners!

August 5: Apricot crumble tart (p. 309)**

August 19: Cherry tomato crostini with homemade herbed goat cheese (p. 110)




for the tart, you can also save the apricot pits, extract the kernels (instructions on p. 312) and make the Apricot kernel ice cream David recommends. He mentions making a half recipe in the head notes. Even if you don’t make the ice cream, save the kernels in the freezer for when you do make it!

FYI I scheduled this first because a) it’s not too hard to make and b) apricots have such a short season in which they’re perfect and that’s either right now (July-August) in northern climes or it’s passed for some areas!
