Aran Goyoaga of Cannelle et Vanille (author of the new book “Small Plates and Sweet Treats, Little, Brown and Company 2012″) visited our kitchen and taught the most amazing Sunday Supper. It is always such a treat to have Aran come over. She is the loveliest spirit and the most amazing cook, all gluten free – but the kind where “you would never know it”. Aran’s classes sell out quickly, in fact this one sold out in under 30 minutes – record breaking ! If you haven’t purchased her book yet – click here, it’s a treasure and the most amazing gift for the holidays ! Most of the recipes at the dinner are from Aran’s book. And stay tuned, I’m working on getting Aran to come back this Spring or Summer, fingers crossed !
Our menu was this:
roasted cauliflower soup
dandelion green and almond pesto
Pear, Swiss chard and Gruyere
parsnip buttermilk cream and fennel vanilla sauce
pots de creme
chocolate, hazelnut and fleur de sel
pistachio vanilla bean shortbread cookies
The crust on this tart is amazing, you would never guess it to be gf. And the combo of pear + gruyere is nothing short of perfect. We’ve attached the recipe in the card below.
Aran served our group of 24 lucky dinners….
And we all lingered for a bit – It was lovely. A huge thanks to Aran and our team of collaborators.
PS- Aran’s book trailer is not to be missed, it makes me well up : )
