Are we all thinking the same?
THANK GOD it´s spring again!!!
For Classy, kind intelligent people like us April is doubly blissful:
First time of the year to bring out our toys and cruise through sweet smelling fruit blossom; mmmhhh apple blossom with just a hint of hot engine oil. Perfect combination. And first time of the year where we start finding fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables.
|C´mon. Take out your toys everyone!|
The most adventurous, fabulous, exhausting,the fastest,the classiest, the raciest, the best of european rallies.(http://www.mealsandwheels.com/2010/04/tour-auto-optic-2010-vive-la-france.html
That´s 600 people minus one, of course. The one is Marc de Siebenthal my Co-pilot, he is much less lucky as he has to share the car with me.
|Tarte au citron
for those who stay at home…..
300 g butter
150 g sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 entire egg
1 egg yolk
Add the eggs briefly, form a big fat round nice lump and let it rest in the fridge for a couple of hours. (perhaps you’ll find one is enough)
3 organic lemons
1 egg yolk
150 g creme double (don‘t try anything else, nothing works like creme double!!)
some butter and flour for the baking tin.
Turn off oven and let cool down to 180°C.Squeeze the orange and the lemons for the juice.
With a whisk mix together all ingredients till slightly frothy.
Place tin with back on the rack in the oven. Pour egg and creme mixture on dough, using a spoon for the last spoonfuls, so that it almost covers the edge of the cake and you would not be able to move it.
Let curd rest in warm oven with the door slightly opened for 25 minutes, till the mixtures does not move anymore when slightly shaken.
Let cake cool and decorate with orange or lemon filets.
