Wednesday the 24th is Administrative professionals’ day but at Douceur de France we are making it a week event so it gives you more chance to come to our bakeries and bring something sweet to the office. You will be regarded as the King of France that day, just make sure they don’t cut your head….
Right now we have replaced, on the menu, the beef Bourguignon by another French classic the “coq au vin”. Traditional in France, the “coq au vin” is an old rooster who is not able to “perform” anymore so he finishes his life as a stew slowly cooked in red wine and fresh vegetables. But in our café we use the same recipe and use chicken drum stick. I just don’t have time to chase after roosters and wouldn’t even know where to find one.
As far as new pastries we have a new sweet bread in addition to the chocolate bread and the bananas walnut bread, we have the “pina colada” bread. You guessed it; it is made with fresh pineapple, coconut and Rum.
I also found a recipe I used a long time ago call the “Grenoblois”. It is a patisserie made with a soft caramel and walnut on top of an almond crust tart shell, just delicious.
Some of you who are going to our Roswell bakery on a regular basis know that we have had parking problems specifically since Malika took over ... she is running the bakery so well that we really have a parking problem…
I know, a good problem to have as a business!!
So this is why you will see in the next few weeks some improvement to make the parking more users friendly and try to use the space available more efficiently.
Again thank you for your business and a big thank you to Malika and her crew.
Felicitations to Stephanie Anderson for accepting the challenge of helping Chantal to manage our Marietta location. Bonne chance.
As we’re getting closer to Valentine’s day you certainly notice a change in the shape of our cookies.
We also are working to make new individual desserts and chocolate candy, meringue and more so as you taste them, it will bring the “French lover attitude” in you.
But as I mentioned to you the previous years you don’t have to wait until February 14th to be “the French lover”….
The New Orleans King’s cake and the galette des Rois will be available until Mardi Gras which is February 12th this year. And the pie of the month is a cherry pie.
