Gratin Comtois


Gratin Comtois
This version of Gratin Comtois begins like the classic gratin dauphinois, but uses Morbier cheese, and diced Morteau sausage for a hint of smoky flavour.

There's no denying it, this is a rich and hearty dish!

Tiramisu
Tiramisu
Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
