This year in April 2011, my mother and I got to experience cooking a meal for the editor of the Washington Post.
Our task was to create an entree with duck, another main dish and then create a meal the way we usually eat on any day. So we made our version of a Duck Confit with Gratin de Pomme de Terre, Olive Chicken Provencal, Couscous with pine nuts, and a Provencal Veggie Tian. Of course, after the main course, we eat salad, bread and cheese, so we made our homemade dijon vinaigrette, and for desert, my mom's amazing-yet-easy Apple Trottoir!!
We believe cooking should be fun and a way of creativity, whether you prefer to stick to a recipe or like to go with whatever ideas come to mind.
