I've recently discovered a blog called Tartelette, a blog by a French lady living in the USA. She takes beautiful photographs, and cooks delicious looking meals. I have spent a fair amount of time trawling through her archives and have been inspired! There are many dishes I would like to make. I think most of her dishes would be perfect for a dinner party - they just look so fabulous!
She may or may not be coeliac, but she cooks a fair number of gluten-free dishes, and has done some things that I didn't think were possible to do gluten-free (eg pastry).
I have made the apricot and rosemary shortbread cookies (recipe)
The dough, after it came out of the food processor (which was cheating, because the recipe involves using a pastry blender, which I don't own):
A stack of delicious biscuits - the apricot comes from good quality apricot jam sandwiching 2 of the biscuits together:
And the taste? Fantastic, a little odd (sweet + savoury) but wonderful.
