What’s the secret to making a perfect grilled cheese sandwich? There are many, and each vary according to the chef. But overall, the main advice would be to have a high quality cheese at home and a soft butter to spread on the outside of the bread before grilling, because it adds flavor and enhances the ability of bread to crisp up when grilled.
This recipe is basically a cheese souffle with flour made in a Savarin or or bundt cake mold.
The Savarin is a mold that is used to mold rice and cold timbales, also perfect for baking donut-shaped biscuits or for making jellies!
What is the difference between a Savarin mold and an ordinary cake mold?
This crown-shaped cake has been one of the most appreciated cakes in France for more than 150 years, and is named after the famous French gourmet chef Jean-Anthelme Brilat-Savarin.
The peculiarity is that it has a hole in the center which allows more wall surface area to transfer heat to the dough, leading to a faster and more efficient baking.
Fried Brie with Greens
I mean, come on, fried cheese…it could never fail! Of course, this is a special type of fried cheese, because we have brie cheese as a main ingredient.
We all know that brie is a controversial cheese, and opinions are always black and white: you love it, or you hate it. Happily, we loooove it! So here we share with you our recipe and tell you the main things you need to know about this delicacy.
Brie cheese is a traditional French cheese, which is made from raw cow’s milk and is classified among soft cheeses, very similar to camembert cheese. There are references about this cheese from the time of the Emperor Charlemagne.
The denomination of brie cheese refers to a small area near the Ile-de-France in the Champagne region, where this cheese is produced and bears the same name.
Fame and consecration of brie cheese as “king of French cheeses” arose in 1814. During that year, brie was the cheese of choice during a dinner organized by Talleyrand at the Congress of Vienna, in which each of the 30 ambassadors in attendance had to bring a cheese of their choice and everyone voted their favorite.
Brie cheese can be eaten both as an appetizer or as a dessert, and both alone or in combination with other ingredients, such as olives, cherry tomatoes, dried fruits like plum, among others. It is also excellent on top of a toast, in sandwiches, or melted on meats.
