my super fuchsia buffet!
1. savory 100 layer cake or ham & cheese crêpes cake
[it was a cocktail party, so I cannot serve sweets or a real birthday cake…
this savory version was perfect!!]
to make about 40 crêpes [22 cm Ø]
1 litre milk
100 grams butter
100 grams butter
500 grams flour
sugar [yes, even if savory…]
sliced cheese [about 40 slices]
sliced ham [about 20 slices]
sift the flour and combine with milk, melted butter, whisked eggs, a pinch of salt
and a pinch of sugar. let batter sit for an hour in the fridge. when you’re ready
to use it, whisk it and make all your crêpes.
now you could add ham & cheese!
put one crêpe in the pan, and add one and half slice of ham, cover with
another crêpe and add three [or four] cheese slices, cover with another crêpe.
turn it with the help of a spatula and let it cook for 1-2 minutes [until cheese
is melted]. then put on your cake stand [or in a dish]. repeat for all your crêpes
and enjoy your savory cake!
[you could even add some besciamella on top , just as icyng… yumm!]
2-4. artichockes or onion mini quiche
to make about 12 mini quiche [5 cm Ø]
250 grams brisée pastry
5 onion [or 8 artichockes]
2 egg yolks
200 ml heavy cream
in a pan simmer the five sliced onions with water, salt and marjoram
[can you smell the aroma?! yumm!], until soft (about 25 minutes).
when water is evaporated add some olive oil and let the onions caramelize
for a while. put the pastry in a non sticky molds, and put a little slice
of brie on the bottom of each mold. then fill with a spoonful of onions,
another slice of brie on top and cover with a spoonful of créme royale.
