The French Connection

I've posted before about the amazing little B&B that we enjoy when we travel to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Well, sad to say, those days are now done; Chris has decided that it's time to move on to other things. To say that we will miss it is a huge understatement. He was the perfect host and the rooms were absolutely beautiful. Here is just a sample of what I'm talking about - a table for two in the breakfast room.

Chris grew up in France and is a chef so breakfast was always a treat. It included freshly baked croissants and clafoutis, a favourite of The Official Cookie Tester. We loved to hear him describe it to new guests in his lovely French accent ..."It's a French dish made with fresh fruit and custard.'

Cherries are still in season so I decided to walk on the French side a bit and make one. It couldn't be easier. I used Julia Child's Cherry Clafoutis recipe and it whipped up in no time.

The longest bit is pitting the cherries but you can substitute almost any fruit that you like; to make the custard, just dump everything into the blender and give it a whirl.

I split the recipe between two pans and shared this little one with Anne. Isn't summer eating just the best?.....M
