Ah Bron, I wish I could just have been a guest at your table! Everything looks just amazingly good. Your gougeres are simply perfect!

How do you take such marvelous pictures? Your mention of Bastille Day was so appropriate. It made me remember that I have a good friend whose birthday is on Bastille Day, so I just sent her a birthday wish in time, thanks to you. I Googled Tomarillo and it said that our Texas/Mexican Tomatillo is related. These tomarillo's look very red and more fruit like than our green timatillo. Are you familiar with tomatillo's? I am enjoying your posts very much. Your unit converter is amazing. Thanks for sharing it!

Not fair! I want to be sitting at your table. It looks so incredibly perfect - mouthwatering art to eat!!! Oh, my and to drink.
Your photos are really gorgeous!!!
Yes, I am intrigued with the tamarillo. I've seen them in picture only. I'll have to get Sue and find them at the market.
I want you to know: this is a beautiful meal, thank you so much.

Oh wow Bron - how fabulous that all looks! I make clafoutis quite regularly - usually with apricots - and I love it. The choux puffs with gruyere look like little bites of heaven!

Hi Bron,

Wonderful pictures, as always. I love the gougeres - I must try these myself. I've never heard of a tamarillo - what are they like?

Sorry to post off topic, but I could not find an email address. I was hoping to talk to you about the Wallace and Gromit cake you made.

If you could please drop me an email.

Thank you very much.

Thank you so much Bea,
I cannot wait for the day you are the guest at my table, please let it be soon!

Hello Sue,
I'm so glad you found our converter, my darling J is the brains behind it, it is fabulous, even if I do say so myself, hehe.
Oh and yes I know the little green Mexican tomatillos...yum!
However we don't see them here often unfortunately.

Thank you Tanna,
you are too sweet, I hope you and / or Sue can track them down, they're delicious!

Hi Jeanne,
thank you, actually to be honest I've never made clafoutis with apricots. How remiss, as I imagine it's completely gorgeous, perhaps with a scattering of toasted almonds for added crunch, mmmm!

Thank you Catherine,
however a little warning gougère are addictive, I adore them, I love anything with choux! Tamarillo are a beautiful dark fruit, I describe them more in my post with the mustard pork.

Thank you!!

Everything looks bright and colorful. I love food like that! Especially those tamarillos. I've never had one before, but I'll be looking for them now.

Everything looks great, Bron - hope you enjoyed the celebration (I'm sure you did!)

No problem Katherine, I've emailed you

Thank you Natalia, Keiko, yes we had a great feast indeed!

bron, magnificent photos (& food) as always! The gougères seem like a perfect pairing for coq au vin.
