    Vanilla Ice Cream with Rhubarb Tart

    As i had to leave last saturday morning at 10.30 to finish recording some video at a project in Grenoble, and the Parisienne girls were leaving that day, we all (Maële, Heejeon, Lisadie, Stephan, Florienne and myself) got up at 8 the morning to crank out a batch and ate it as the on the […]

  • Dates and apple ice cream

    Dates and apple ice cream

    During a day out with my school, I had the luck of finding a fruit and cereal shop that was selling everything at half price. Bargain!

    The Best Pancakes

    To accompany the Marzipan Ice Cream, I thought we should publish the best pancake recipe ever! I’m not talking crêpes. These are big, fluffy American-style pancakes. My mom gave me this recipe in her wonderful little book titled “Mother’s Recipes for Peter”. I’m not sure where she got it, but it is worth repeating here. […]
