A Good Day!
Breakfast: Pancakes with blueberry compote
Lunch: Crustless Quiche Savoyarde
Amuse Bouche: Cucumber Mint Puree
Dinner: Strawberry Tomato Salad
Dinner: Grilled Maple Syrup Salmon
Dessert: Grilled Pineapple and Nectarines
Breakfast: Pancakes with blueberry compoteI really have no idea what a "compote" is, but it definitely sounds better than just a "sauce". I think this is a pretty standard pancake recipe. Not quite as "standard" as the pre-made mix, but with only 3 ingredients, I'm not sure why you'd need anything "pre-made" anyways! This is always a great breakfast because it's impressive, tasty, and also fast and easy. All good!
Lunch: Crustless Quiche SavoyardeSince we’re living in the Haute-Savoie region in France, I try and re-create or improvise on some of the classic regional dishes and ingredients. The traditional foods are really hearty basic staples: Sausage, cheese and potatoes. Stuff you needed to keep you warm during the winter! The good news is that these ingredients are often now used in some pretty interesting ways in amazing restaurants throughout the region. I typically do a crustless quiche, because “crust” implies baking, and I'm really not into that for a simple lunch.
Amuse Bouche: Cucumber Mint PureeI know I saw this recipe somewhere, but no idea from where, and not really sure I'm following it correctly anyways! In any event, super simple, tasty and always nice to start a summer meal with a bright, light, fresh, cold amuse bouche.
Dinner: Strawberry Tomato SaladI think I saw a variation of this on a French cooking show. One of the things I love about France is that it seems half of the afternoon and evening TV programming is cooking shows! And that's on the main national channels! In any event, a really light, summery salad, with a great balance of flavours. Perfect accompaniment to a grilled main course. And because of the ingredients, you can play with the presentation (like the layering effect in the picture).
Dinner: Grilled Maple Syrup SalmonMarinating salmon before grilling isn't exactly new, nor is using maple syrup in Canada, so there are probably hundreds of variations of this recipe out there. This is what works for me!
Dessert: Grilled Pineapple and NectarinesAfter we had been in France for about a year, we moved to a place with a nice garden and lots of room for a BBQ. I hadn't grilled on a BBQ for about 5 years, so I started basically trying to do everything on the grill. This was the first dessert I tried. So, so good!

Here’s some quick information regarding how our cookbook platform works, along with a few tips for making the most of cookbooks you add to your library.
What is the Cookbook Café Platform?Cookbook Café is our one-of-a-kind cookbook publisher, marketplace and reader. It empowers everyone to create, market and distribute a cookbook as both a web-based eBook and an iPad app. It also makes it incredibly easy for home cooks to discover and use amazing grassroots cookbooks they won't find anywhere else. Since 2012, we've published thousands of cookbooks authored by home chefs, nonprofit organizations, clubs, brands, etc. Our goal is to democratize cookbook publishing and make it easy to build an online library of amazing grassroots cookbooks.
How do I "download" a cookbook?You don't need to "download" cookbooks or deal with any files. All of the cookbooks you select (free and paid) using Cookbook Café become available to you automatically on any device (computer, tablet or smartphone) whenever you’re logged-in to your free BakeSpace account.
When you see a cookbook you like, simply click the green "Get it Now" button. If you're not logged in to BakeSpace, you'll be asked to login (or join) so the cookbook can be added to your cookbook library. Once in your library, you can access the cookbook anytime, anywhere via BakeSpace.com, as well as our Cookbook Café iPad app.
While you're checking out cookbooks, also take some time to visit other parts of the delicious BakeSpace.com community where you can swap recipes and connect with others who share your passion for food and the culinary lifestyle.
Get ready to enjoy a uniquely smart and social cookbook experience!Once a cookbook is added to your BakeSpace library, our proprietary recipe indexing technology makes it easy for you to find any specific recipe across all of your cookbooks… so there's no need to remember which cookbook contains that perfect recipe. In addition, you can connect directly with each cookbook author, leave comments/reviews and even ask questions about recipe substitutions, history, etc.
