French Food Friday...Warm chocolate pudding recipe with almond-vanilla praline
photo and recipe from here
Bonjour from a very chilly SW France,
It is freezing here so I am in the mood for staying cosy. Speaking of cosy, in a little over a week's time, it will be Saint Valentine's day so I am on the lookout for some fabulous recipes as I am planning on cooking French Boyfriend a romantic dinner.
I think that I will need a week to get prepared as he likes to try new recipes but seems to prefer the French ones best, the exception being Guinness and Beef Stew, which he prefers to beef bourguignon.
Hence I need a week....
This week's recipe is one that never fails to impress as it really does melt in the mouth.
