Flammekuche | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

I stumbled on this one from the archives today.
And now I’m thinking of baking flammekuche tomorrow or over the weekend. Specially that once the dough’s ready, it’s pretty simple and so tasty…

Sometimes you want to make the day special.
I prepared those on a whim yesterday to surprise my other half this morning…

Autumn Upon us

Grapes | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

As I removed March from the wall calendar, I realised that the first quarter of the year’s gone.

Just like that…

I hope April and the coming months will be as good as March was.

Indeed, I was challenged and went out of my comfort zone, but in the end I had a great time shooting lovely people in interesting locations.

Chicken and Grapes Salad | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

Weeks slipped by and we are now in autumn.

The wind, the rain – so awaited after the summer drought- and the cool mornings are some of the indicators of the change.

A look at the produce and one can notice the transition as well. Welcome plump chestnuts, aromatic quinces and delicious grapes…

Grape Financiers | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

Each year I anticipate the appearance of these grapes.

A delight !

They are the perfectly sweet touch at the end of a meal.

I also tossed several in a chicken salad for lunch the other day. And lately I baked some into financiers. They impart a nice flavour to this traditionally plain cake, lightly crisp on the edge and moist inside.

To satisfy your craving I recommend you to follow Hélène’s recipe.
