For the last few days, after watching Jaques Pepin demonstrate to make this Oeuf en Cocotte, it’s been my breakfast true past 4 days.  Today, I decided to add bacon as well.

1 egg
1TB soft butter
About 2 TB or less of minced herbs
Salt and pepper to season

1 bread cut in a circle toasted

Boil some water in a small frying pan while preparing your Oeuf en Cocotte.

You take a ramekin about 2 inches across and butter it generously.  Next you mince herbs.  In my case I use chives and parsley, minced.

Sprinkle the minced herbs around the sides of the ramekin.  You can lightly press it on the sides if you like more herbs like me.

Crack your egg in it.  Season with salt and pepper or some flavored salt.

Place your ramekin in the center of your pan  with boiling water and cover.  Cool for only 4 minutes.

After 4 minutes, run your knife around to loosen the egg.

Place your toasted bread on top, preferably cut in circle  for the oeuf en Cocotte to lay on.

Flip it over and shake it a little for the egg to come off the ramekin.

Remove the ramekin carefully.  Voila!! 

Non Appetite!

Pair with Bacon:
I cook the entire container of bacon in the oven at 425F degrees for 15 minutes on one side.  Flip it on the other side and continue cooking another 10 more minutes.  Depending on the thickness and how crisp you want your bacon to be, cooking may be longer or slightly shorter in time.

Drain bacon on paper towel and pat dry.  Use what you need and pack it in a sealed container in your refrigerator ready to be reheated and used for the week!

They Train Them Early

I find this little girl quite cute interested in cooking and things about food!  I guess being a Foodie starts while one is young.  I think I loved food as well!Taking on Mc Adventure

Bastille Day Celebration In NYC

What a beautiful summer day today!  It was very festive and many people both French and Nee Yorkers including Tourists attended this yearly fest.

I was looking forward to the food most of all.

This year I tried a new sandwich by Epicerie Boulud which was with coq-au-vin (like French chicken stew).  It was served in a brioche roll with bacon and a toothpick with pickled pearl onion.  I liked it.
There were many pastries and nicely crafted costume jewelry that look real.

They also had a band and live show from comedians to singers.

 Above is a delicious apple cake torte.  It is delicious and moist made by one of my favorite French place here in the city.  Epicerie Boulud.
 Pictures say a thousand words.  Attending this event is like grocery shopping for me with French food in mind.  I found chocolate cereals to cookies, French custard to pistachio rolls and no sodium nitrite dry sausage!  You bet, I will come back next year!

Here’s a father who made the chocolate Rice Krispies with marshmallow and butter to be eaten by this cute family.  I think the mother is the one talking in the background.  Nice watching different episodes about this family!

This is a birthday celebration I had with my family welcoming them now that they live far away in the other side of the world!  What a nice birthday gift!  To have family with you.  So I decided to celebrate!

My favorite roast pig was too big for us so I ordered a pork belly roll similar to the Italian Porchetta.  The skin was definitely crisp throughout   It was a large pork belly still with skin and rolled with spices and fresh lemon grass inside.

 I also made the salad above made with pink Italian lettuce - available only in Spring.  With white asparagus, frisée, watermelon radish and roasted beets.  Later drizzled with balsamic vinegar dressing.


This is one of the performers for the current ad for Kiwi in Japan.  The above is not the ad but her rehearsal at her studio.    I found her cute and so was the actual ad where she is casted in.  The music is very catchy indeed!

If you watch it, please make sure you give her a thumbs up!

Thanking you in advance.

I like grilled cheese. And I like waffles.  

One day I decided to make a combination of these 2 worlds.

If you watch my video above, you will see how he loved my grilled cheese waffle!

It’s simple to make. 

Slices of easy to melt sharp cheddar cheese like Beechers Flagship cheddar or from Upstate New York’s cheddar.use a white sandwich bread and stuff it with slices of cheddar.  After the cheese has been sandwich brush the outsides with melted butter.

Use a Belgian waffle maker.  Pre heat it and then add the cheese sandwich.  That’s the opinion of a 4’year old.  He loved the grilled cheese waffle!
