Welcome to The Darling Bakers "April in Paris" event, in honor of our Darling Baker,
~ who will be leaving for Paris shortly!
AND FOODIE FRIDAY ~
Hosted by our Darling Baker, Michael Lee West, on her delightful blog Designs By Gollum!
(Please click on the link to see Michael's post and the other Foodie Friday participants.)
The Darling Bakers decided to have a French Bistro menu at my house ~ please pull up a chair and enjoy!
For starters, (store bought) Pâté.
Served with the traditional cornichon pickles, and toasted baguette slices.
Next an amuse-bouche; a highly flavored French Onion Soup.
Followed by a take on the traditional salad Salade Tiède aux Oeuf; comprised of frisée, a warm poached egg, lardons (crisp bacon), and toasted croutons.
Instead of serving the egg on the croutons, I sprinkled them over, and used baby Spring greens.
For color, some fresh pansies, violas and snipped chives from the garden.
And for dessert ~ Crêpes à l'orange.
For a snack later, with coffee ~ a GIANT Eiffel Tower cookie to share. I bought the copper cookie cutter from Sur la Table some years ago as a decorative piece for my kitchen, but this seemed like the perfect time to use it.
I would like to thank, Jain (Once in a Blue Moon) for hosting our event!
And I would also like to wish Cathy Bon Voyage, and a wonderful and enjoyable, long visit to the City of Lights!
And thank YOU so very much, for stopping by!
