InterculturalityStory: French Eurodinner recipes
Posted on Monday, May 02 @ 14:14:38 CDT
Topic: Interculturality
French food served for Eurodinner: apple pie, Coulommiers (a kind of camembert), Easter chocolate eggs, goat cheese, quiche, and of course French wine.

You will find here the recipes of the meals we prepared for Eurodinner : quiche and apple pie. But we won't give you a recipe for French wine, because we are not allowed to give it to foreign people.


Quiche lorraine

The receipe described hereunder is the receipe for the most classical French quiche: Quiche lorraine. To do the same as we did for Eurodinner, just add a leek cut in slices and pre-cooked on boiling water. You may also put anything you want instead of fat bacon, e.g. onions or other kinds of vegetables, tuna-fish and so on.

Ingredients

- for the pastry:
  • 250g floor
  • 125g butter
  • half a glass water
  • one teaspoon of salt
- for the preparation:
  • 4 eggs
  • 20cl cream
  • 1glass milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 200g grated cheese (emmental or equivalent)
  • fat bacon

Instructions

- doing the pastry:

Mix the floor with the salt, then add the butter cut into little squares (the butter shouldn't be to hard) and mix it well. When you obtain an homogeneous pastry, add the water, mix again and wait for 1 hour before using it.

- doing the preparation:

Mix the eggs together, add cream, milk, salt and pepper and mix again.

- puting it all together:

Spread the pastry and put it into a flan case. Cook the fat bacon on a frying pan and put it (or the ingredients you want to put instead) on the pastry with part of the cheese. Pour the preparation on it (if everything goes well it should cover all the ingredients you already put), and sprinkle the remaining cheese on the top.
Now you just have to cook your quiche in the oven (about 220C) for 20 to 30 minutes.



Tarte aux pommes (apple pie)

In France we use to have pies for dessert, though other types of desserts are also popular. We describe here the apple pie we cooked for Eurodinner, but you may also replace the strawberry marmalade by another type of marmalade, or by compote. Another possibility is to use other fruits than apples, for instance pears, apricots, or plums.

Ingredients

for the pastry:
  • 250g floor
  • 125g butter
  • half a glass water
  • one spoon of sugar
for the preparation:
  • 4 medium apples
  • strawberry marmalade
  • sugar
  • cinnamon

Instructions

doing the pastry:
Mix the floor with the sugar, then add the butter cut into little squares (the butter shouldn't be to hard) and mix it well. When you obtain an homogeneous pastry, add the water, mix again and wait for 1 hour before using it.

doing the preparation:
Peel the apples and cut them into thin slices. puting it all together:
Spread the pastry and put it into a flan case. Cover it with a quite thin layer of marmalade, and arrange the apple slices on it, on concentric circles. Eventually, sprinkle cinnamon on the top and cook your pie in an oven (about 220C) for 20 to 30 minutes.

Bon apptit bien sr !
