the boy made steak and french fries. I contributed a spinach souffle made from random stuff around the house: warm frozen spinach, cream cheese, and a bit of milk in the microwave until soft. add in a beaten egg, some croutons, salt and pepper, and spread in a buttered caserole. top with parmesan and bake at 400 for 20 minutes or so, until it rises. surprisingly successful!

Gruyère Cheese Gougères

Last Sunday we hosted a Winter Feast in honour of our friend Indre, who successfully defended her Ph.D. dissertation. Nick and I cooked a seven course meal. Most of the dishes were taken from the French Laundry cookbook, by culinary sensei Thomas Keller. Some others were recreations of dishes that Nick had at his brother’s restaurant in Aspen. Each dish was carefully paired with its "perfect" wine.

The evening opened with these Gruyère Cheese Gougères, served on a silver platter as a fun bite-sized appetizer to eat with your hands. They are lighter than air and mostly empty inside, infused with just the right amount of cheese flavour.

This was paired with Schamsberg Brut Rosé sparkling wine.

A collective blog of our experiences of that evening is taking shape at edibles.blogspot.com/.
