Things I can't Live without: Fish Sauce Products Recipe
Here's another video featuring the ingredients I'm obsessed with and that are a must in my everyday cooking. Please note that this post is not sponsored; it's unbiased and features my 100% honest opinion. Today, I want to feature the brands of fish sauce that I use. I'm visiting my parents in France right now and I had anticipated preparing our favorite Vietnamese dish: phở bò.

Olivier's Grandma's Pithivier Dessert Recipe Recipe

If you follow the blog, you've probably noticed the "pithivier cake" cooking tutorial my childhood friend Alexia, her husband Olivier and I filmed during their visit to Silicon Valley. We've received great feedback, but many of you asked for the recipe in print for easier readability. So without further ado, here it is. 

I've baked another pithivier; they're so easy to assemble (we've made four already since I learned Olivier's grandma "Mamie Françoise's" 1930s award-winning pithivier cake recipe). It originates from the small town of Pithiviers, in the Loiret département in north-central France where Olivier grew up. As we mentioned in the video, "shhh," this recipe is a secret! It's only made with almond flour, eggs, sugar and oranges. There is no butter; the richness comes from the abundance of almonds in the batter.
