French toast is such a great way to reuse any ingredient you find at home. The stale, slightly-hard bread will soak up more egg mixture without falling apart. The traditional way is to pan-fry the bread slices in butter, dusted with powdered sugar & served with jam.
Autumn has always been my favourite season. Not only because I was born in autumn, but I also love the atmosphere and scenery during the season. The weather gets crisp and I love feeling the gentle breeze on the streets. Everything gets a bit more atmospheric in autumn with red, yellow and golden leaves. It’s also the best season for spices (my love for chai latte), warm cider and barbecues.
Today I share with you a heart-warming cuisine which I think is best served in autumn, the season of slow-cooked stews ♥(˘⌣˘ ). It is one of the French classics, Beef Burgundy (Bœuf Bourguignon in French). This tranditional dish is bursting with flavour. I love the mellow scent of red wine floating in the air around my house – the best way to celebrate the coming of Autumn!
I was curious about the reason of dividing sandwiches into two different sexes, i.e. Croque Madame & Croque Monsieur. So I googled about it and found that the French thought the sunny side up egg resembles women’s breasts, hence the feminine title (,,ﾟДﾟ)
All of a sudden, this dish seems so sexy lol. The French perspective on art and cuisine is definitely bold and unique, and I just love it.
