Here’s some more food photography and for the first time a recipe!

I’ll explain to you how to prepare these delicious profiteroles.

Desert for six people

You will need:

  • 2 dl of water
  • 70g butter
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 140g flour
  • 200g eggs (3 – 4 eggs, the exact quantity of eggs is important, that it is why it is specified)
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • whipped cream (you can also make it your self)

Preheat the oven at 180C° (360F°)

Profiteroles:

  1. Put the water, the butter and the salt in a pan and bring it to a boil.
  2. Pour all the flower in the pan, take it off the heat and stir vigorously with a wooden spatula until you obtain a ball of dough.
  3. Leave the dough in the pan and let it to cool down.
  4.  Now add each egg one at a time. Be sure that the egg is well incorporated in the dough before adding the next one.

Congrats you’ve just made puff pastry. Now use two teaspoons to make small balls of pastry and place them well spaced on a baking sheet. Put the tray in the oven and cook 20min. Than let the small puffs cool for about 10min with the oven door half open.

During this time you can prepare the chocolate sauce by melting the chocolate (I use the microwave).

Take out the cooked pastries, let them cool a couple minutes, incise them with a knife and fill them with whipped cream.

Make a small mountain of profiteroles on each plate and pour chocolate sauce on them…

Enjoy 😉

Stormy weather

Hi everybody,

Sorry I didn’t post much lately… but now I’ve got some new stuff to show you beginning with these black and white shots down at the beach.

It was raining so I had to cover up the camera with my rain jacket. Worked out pretty well actually. (Little tip right there 😉  )

Tell me what you think and keep on blogging!

Oh! I’m using Flickr now to post my photos so I don’t have to worry about the watermark.

Swiss trains

Swiss trains, known to be always on time… mostly.

I wanted to give the effect of movement by zooming out while taking the photo at a low shutter speed.
