For my birthday I recieved a wonderful cookbook written by Rachel Khoo entitled "The Little Paris Kitchen" and was inspired this weekend to make a simple gourmet french lunch of "Tartines".
Tartines are a french snack and can be eaten with savoury or sweet toppings. This one is pear and manchengo cheese. To make: thinly slice half a pear, then top the bread with the pear and a few slices of cheese and heat under the grill until the cheese is bubbling and golden.
And my favourite one: caramalized apples. Butter the bread and thinly slice half an apple. Arrange the apple on the bread, sprinkle with sugar and place under the grill under the apple has caramilized. Plus the whole room smelt like candy floss afterwards!
So quick and simple to make yet so delicious!
