Yesterday I discovered a new BBC food program, Cooking with Rachel Khoo in Paris. The recipes are simple but I enjoyed watching her and her French adventures.
I tune in every Tuesday for the hairy bikers, now I have something to look forward to on Mondays as well!
Thank you BBC for your great cooking shows… all you Belgian tv channels, please make something as good as this.
Kipling celebrated its 25th anniversary at the Felixpakhuis in Antwerp, Belgium, together with customers, local celebrities and press!
What a party! Catering looked great too
Check the video
You need to be a big fan to love the classic travel bag or the classic wallet. I remember at home when I was young that we had many Kipling items. Great material, light to carry and reliable. But what I really like about Kipling is the way they managed to boost the brand with some new sparkling items.
Binnenkort lanceert VTM een nieuw programma om naar uit te kijken! Het wordt er eentje met smaak want Rani De Coninck zal met de twee professionele toppatissiers Sofie Dumont en Bernard Proot de meest gepassioneerde en getalenteerde thuisbakker van het land zoeken.
De 12 kandidaten zullen het land rondreizen op zoek naar kennis en informatie over de Vlaamse baktradities en zullen in het speciaal ontworpen bakatelier allerlei proeven afleggen tot Rani dé meesterbakker heeft gevonden.
De heerlijke geur van taarten, koffiekoeken, broden, chocolade en bavarois zal tot in de Vlaamse huiskamers doordringen.
Miss Patisse is all excited…. en droomt stiekem van een deelname!!!
Bûche de Noël is a traditional dessert served near in France, Belgium, Canada, Lebanon, Vietnam, and several other francophone countries and former French colonies. This log-shaped cake is made from a Génoise and frosted and filled with buttercream. However, many variations on the traditional recipe exist.
Are you making own bûche this year or are you tempted to order one of these…?
Biscuit macaron à la rose, crème aux pétales de rose, framboises fraîches, letchis.
Serves 6-8 persons : 65€
Génoise aérienne aux marrons et fruits rouges, mousse au chocolat intense.
Serves 6 persons : 42€
Yes, I have been looking for that perfect swirl! I’ve purchased over 10 piping tips already and I’ve tried every technique I could find. However the best result for me personally is with a closed star.
First of all you need to find out what kind off frosting you like. You can make simple buttercream frosting, ganache, italian meringue or cream cheese frosting. There are many recipes on the Internet. Now that you’ve got a great frosting recipe you will need to get the tools and the technique! Aha, technique… that’s the hard part. I’ve selected some video’s that can help you on the way.
Closed star, classique swirl
I also like the more ‘nonchalant’ swirls like Hummingbirds does.
And for the experts there’s this tutorial. It looks easy right?

Just signed up as a Daring Baker… The Daring Kitchen is a group of cooks and bakers who virtually meet up once a month to try a new recipe. Somebody posts the new recipe and then all signed up cooks and bakers try it out. You need to share a picture of the result. I’ve never done this before but I’m definitely looking forward to my first dare!! Hope you are as well…
This was September’s dare: French croissants!
