When I was very young and we lived in Montreal, my mom was part of a gourmet club. She and her friends would put together incredibly elaborate meals for each other and they would talk about it over and over, forever.
My mom loved good food. It was important to her. This did not include dessert though. For her, it was all about the dinner.
In particular, I heard about Mrs. Litt’s candied violets, something I have dreamed about since I was a kid.
It was fun to include my Hello Kitty Toaster in the video but not so much fun when it burned the toast and set off the fire alarm during the taping!
I hope I did my mom proud. This recipe came from the copy of La Varenne Pratique she got me at the church auction we loved so much.
Today oven-baked eggs in cream… Tomorrow? Who knows! This foodie world is our oyster.
