gougères 

Yeah, that’s right– a new Dorie book means a new group!   Laurie started up French Fridays with Dorie (which, for some reason, I keep calling “French Fries with Dorie”), a weekly celebration of the recipes in Dorie Greenspan’s gorgeous new book Around my French Table.  

Things have been more than a little disorganized here…boxes are everywhere, butcher paper is tied and stacked like bales of hay, and the kitchen counter is pretty messy.  I thought I might miss the first party, and have to skip making these gougères.  Then I thought again, and realized I could really use a glass of wine and some snacks! 

Gougères are little cheesey puffs made with a pâte à choux base.  If you’ve never prepared choux paste before, it’s not hard (I even made this batch by hand), and in my opinion it’s one of the most fun things to make!  I used gruyère cheese in mine, but you can use whatever grating cheese flots your boat.  Salty and good! 

For the recipe, see Around my French Table by Dorie Greenspan.  Don’t forget to check out my fellow francophiles’ posts!
