This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Shari of Whisk: a food blog: Floating Islands. It's a classic French dessert consisting of soft poached meringue puffs floating in a smooth crème anglaise. I've never seen or heard of this particular dessert before, but I have been wanting to try it ever since I got the cookbook.
Unfortunately, I was unable to make the recipe this week because I am out of the country! While I am unable to participate in Tuesdays with Dorie this week, I will be spending Tuesday with Dorie (in spirit - I know she would love to be here right now) as I wander through the streets of Paris visiting some of Dorie's favorite places - among them, Pierre Hermé's pastry shop! I wonder how many macarons I can stuff in my suitcase and bring home? ;)
Thank you Shari, for choosing this recipe - I promise to try it soon after I return. If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you visit the TWD Blog Roll to see how everyone else enjoyed this puffy treat. (I'll be back with TWD next week, as we make the Devil's Food White-Out Cake.)
