French-Secret of the Week . . . Entertaining

May 23, 2012

The definition of entertaining in France is gathering with friends and lingering for hours at the dinner table having fun.

I love having people over, but more often than not I’ve found myself missing the party because I was still in the kitchen creating the event.

My parents entertained a lot when I was growing up and it always seemed to happen with little effort. Entertaining was so natural for them that I missed the fact that my mother prepared everything ahead of time. A lesson I’ve since learned!

Here’s what I’m planning for the weekend.

BBQ Pizza

I bought pizza dough at the market and followed the instructions to make small pizzas. As you can see mine was square . . . oh well.

I prepared my toppings, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and grilled vegetables I had left over. You can use anything.

I brushed olive oil on the top of the dough and then placed the oiled side of the pizza dough down on the BBQ to let it grill. Once it has grilled so it’s nice and brown I turned the dough over on a board and brushed oil on the uncooked side and placed that side on the BBQ.

I added my toppings and covered the pizza with tin foil to keep the heat in and cook the toppings without burning the pizza.

If you don’t want to use the BBQ, the oven works really well and instead of the pizza dough try using flour tortillas.

I love thin crust pizza that I can let get really crispy. This is perfect!

Look how crispy the crust is!

I added goat cheese on top. Yum!

I’ve never tried these on the BBQ, but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work. Try it and let me know and send pictures!

Making risotto isn’t hard, but it is time-consuming. You can’t just put it together and walk away. When you take the time to make it properly—meaning you patiently stir as you add the liquid and watch it transform into this glistening, creamy rice mixture that oozes. . .

CRÈME CARAMEL – IT SEEMED MAGICAL
CRÈME CARAMEL – IT SEEMED MAGICAL

This is the dessert of my childhood and still one of my favorites. Actually, anything with caramel is on my list of favorites. But there is something about the silkiness of the custard and the puddle of caramel it rests in that is simply luscious. The first time I made it I was surprised that it worked, and how . . .
