Smoked Turkey and Swiss Crepes

Tonight we ventured into unknown territory and made a crepe recipe from this month’s Cooking Light. To my memory this is the first time we’ve made a crepe recipe despite 10+ years of subscribing to Cooking Light. 118 more words

I don’t know about you all,  but in our house I find with only two people we unfortunately end up wasting a lot of food. Using up fresh fruit and veggies is always a struggle, one which I am determined to conquer lately. 512 more words

「奶姬的波爾多漂流」 5.法式薄餅

每個禮拜天的晚上,接待家庭的爸爸都會從下午開始做麵糊,接著將麵糊放在圓形的鐵盤上,接著用T形棒將麵糊鋪的又平又飽滿,形成一片又一片金黃的法式薄餅,也就是俗稱的可麗餅(Crêpe),和台灣吃到脆脆的餅皮不同,爸爸做的可麗餅是像鬆餅般柔軟的薄餅。

 T形棒與可麗餅鐵盤

在家裡吃的佐料很簡單,一顆半熟的太陽蛋加上炒蘑菇,也可以沾一點蕃茄醬,接著就是灑上一大堆的法國乳酪絲。香濃的半熟蛋被湯匙戳破,蛋液沾上蘑菇及乳酪絲,溫熱的半熟蛋讓乳酪絲跟著溶解,融在可口的餅皮上,放入口中,香氣濃得化不開。

吃完鹹的,如果想來一點甜點,有nutella讓你刷在餅皮上(nutella是義大利產的巧克力榛果醬,可以用來抹在餅乾或麵包上,或是當作蛋糕的餡料),刷完了nutella,接著從冰箱拿出最棒的”冰淇淋”加在餅皮上(個人認為加了冰淇淋什麼都好吃),這時身邊若事有甚麼巧克力醬或可可粉,熱熱的餅皮加上冰冰涼涼的冰淇淋配上微苦的可可粉,再來杯甜甜的蘋果酒,哪有什麼甜點比得上他。

Nutella

可麗餅起源於法國西邊的布列塔尼(Bretagne),在接待家庭吃的和傳統的布列塔尼可麗餅比較下根本是小巫見大巫,傳統的布列塔尼可麗餅連餅皮都非常講究。每年的二月二號是一個充滿宗教的節日叫聖蠟節(la chandeleur),法國或比利時人在這個節日,會點起一圈蠟燭,與家人一塊兒享用溫馨的可麗餅晚餐,所以他們也稱這天為可麗餅日。

聖蠟節是個非常宗教的節日,是當年聖母瑪利亞帶著剛出生的耶穌到教堂受洗的日子,也是人們慶祝冬天即將離開迎接陽光的日子,所以這天教堂裡會點滿蠟燭或火炬。那為什麼這天要吃「可麗餅」? 因為煎得圓圓金黃的薄餅就像太陽,如同耶穌的出生被預言為「世界之光」。所以這一天如果和親朋好友吃上一個金黃圓滿的法式薄餅,就會帶來陽光般的好運氣喔! 另外,傳說中在煎餅皮的時候搖動平底鍋,把餅往空中甩翻個面的同時,左手拿著一枚錢幣,這一年就會幸運連連大發財!下次做可麗餅的時候可以來試試。

吃可麗餅的時候,傳統上都會搭配蘋果酒(cidre)代替平日的葡萄酒,特別的是蘋果酒不是放在一般的玻璃杯中,而是放在陶壺和陶杯中(有點類似喝老人茶用的杯子),蘋果酒的原產地在諾曼第,在超市都可以找到。蘋果氣泡酒又分酒精含量較輕的甜蘋果氣泡酒le cidre doux及酒精含量較高的生蘋果氣泡酒le cidre brut。甜蘋果氣泡酒喝起來有點像蘋果西打,一般可以搭配口味偏甜的法式薄餅,一般法國人或男生通常比較愛生蘋果氣泡酒,比較有勁也比較有成熟的味道,也比較適合鹹口味的法式薄餅,假如沒有蘋果酒也可以搭配開胃酒或氣泡酒來替代。

蘋果酒

好吃的可麗餅不用複雜,只要有新鮮的食材和香濃的餅皮就完美了!用可麗餅和蘋果酒,和Monday blue 說掰掰,用太陽般的心情迎接每個星期的開始!

Fresh produce connected the dots of my culinary journey through Europe. Punnets of strawberries packed for a picnic by the Seine and in palatial parks. Sprightly bell peppers cut into matchsticks and nibbled with Comté aboard the train. 655 more words
