French Breakfast With Bonne Maman Preserves

posted on September 19th, 2018 by Roberto Lewis

We hope you’ve been following along as we journey through the cuisines of different cultures. We’ve finally arrived in France, a culture renowned for its food. Where do we begin? At breakfast, of course. And no French breakfast would be complete without a selection of fruit preserves from Bonne Maman. BREAKFAST IN PARIS The traditional Parisian breakfast will commence with a bread item, perhaps a toasted brioche tartine with cultured butter and wildflower honey. Add to that a warm croissant and an espresso with a dash of milk. Your choice of jam will determine the character of your meal. A tablespoon of Bonne Maman’s Lemon Curd will transform your buttered tartine into a smooth, rich treat you’ll need to close your eyes to savor properly.

Feeling Hot...Hot...Hot! So now that you've seized the day and stocked up on Hatch chiles, it's time to head on into the kitchen! When cooking, you have options, but we'd recommend roasting over open flame if possible. The broiler method is our second favorite technique! If you're saving the spice for later, we've got you covered with how to freeze and secure your hatch chiles for up to one year. How to: Roast Hatch Chiles at Home Over open flame: This is the preferred method but requires a gas stove and extreme attention and care. Turn on one of your burners to medium high heat.

posted on October 24th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

Can you believe Halloween is just one week away? October has already come and {almost} gone. What do your Halloween plans entail? For many of us, the actual night, which falls on a not-so-fun Tuesday this year, will consist of trick-or-treating with our little ones all dressed up in costumes of their choosing. An evening with way too much candy and possible battles to relinquish said candy, it's just one of those holidays the kids can't resist. We have bags upon bags of candy just waiting for you too. Because unless you want to turn off your lights...and maybe the doorbell ringer too, the kids will be a-coming for their treats.
