Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook “Everyday Dorie” is here and I can’t wait to start cooking from it.
The group has chosen to make her “Newest Gougères” as our first recipe just as we did when we started “Around My French Table” back in 2010.
After 8 years I can say I have finally conquered the recipe for Pâte à choux without getting upset thinking it’s not going to work.
I love that Dorie adds mustard and nuts to this new version, the flavors were so good. I used sharp cheddar cheese and the walnuts in mine and loved every bite.
I ended up with fewer than the recipe called for, and after watching Dorie’s video I realized how small she makes them. However, they are good at any size, and perfect with a glass of wine.
After baking the batch, I put them in the freezer and when I reheated them the next day, they were just as delicious as the freshly baked ones.
If this recipe is any indication of the recipes in the book, we are in for some delicious meals, and I am looking forward to all of them.
