After a hard shopping trip on Blvd. Haussman, many moons ago, I stumbled on the Laduree kiosk in the wonderful Lafayette Gourmand. I was on my way to the parking garage, the line wasn't too long, and, looking at the wonderful treats I saw something a little different; A Cannelé. I ordered three.
In the elevator down to my car, I munched on one. After paying the parking ticket to get out of the garage, I ate another one. Get the picture? They were delicious. While fighting my way down Blvd Haussman and onto the Rue de Rivoli I was trying to shift gears and finishing off my third. I decided to try to find a recipe! (actually, doing a 'yahoo search' is how I found my way into the wonderful world of Food Blogs)
Producing the perfect Cannelé is one of my passions. I'm currently working on Pierre's recipe. I made the batter, which rests in the fridge overnight then finds its way into buttered molds, Pierre says butter and then chill the mold. He is the man!!!!
I'll keep you up to date on my progress!
