Introducing "Go Ahead Honey, It's Gluten Free" for July: Ooh La La Bastille Day!
I think I was born to be French. Last year as some of you know, our family parked in the south of France for a couple of months. I was in heaven. I have such fond memories of strolling in the village cheese shop to find the most pungent cheese I could, drooling over the pastisserie windows and forcing my husband to eat them vicariously, and devouring the many fantastic chocolates to be had. And living there gluten free wasn't too bad either. 100% buckwheat crepes were common, as was socca, a wood-fired olive oil and chickpea flour pancakes. The restaurant chefs took pride in their work, and knew exactly what went into their food. They were more than happy to whip up a wonderful creation.
So this month let's celebrate with the French by mixing up some French cuisine - gluten free of course. Whether it be savory quiches, or sweet mousses, or even fancy pastries, it can be enjoyed gluten-free.
Share your French creations by submitting your creation to me at sheryl at breakingbreadblog.com by July 27th, 2010 and I will post the roundup by the end of the month.
