Quick snack by a lovely fountain in Chambery… Still trying to hold out for dinner;)
Mmmm…. I love France and that I’m a great cook 😉 On the menu today- Pain perdu avec abrigot et fromage blanc. Nourriture délicieuse!
I made French toast with cream, eggs, salt, and a touch of nutmeg. The baguette was VERY stale, so I let the bread soak for a long time. I toasted it in plenty of butter over low heat so the exterior got brown, crisp, and caramelized while the interior stayed rich and custardy- Parfait! J’aime la nourriture Française!
I melted some apricot jam and cut up some fresh apricots. Then I plopped a generous portion of fromage blanc in the middle and topped it all with the melted jam, fresh apricots and alpine flowers. Served it with some bitter French roast coffee and voila- breakfast!
