The September 2009 Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Steph of A Whisk and a Spoon. She chose the French treat, Vols-au-Vent based on the Puff Pastry recipe by Michel Richard from the cookbook Baking With Julia by Dorie Greenspan.
This month we were challenged in making Puff Pastry and for me it was the first time making it so it was a real challenge !! Obviously I made many mistakes (like rolling the pastry too thin, not cooking the layers together,not having the oven hot enough and so on) but certainly got over the puff pastry terror and will make it again !
The sweet ones were filled with zabaione and a simple raspberries' compote on a raspberries' coulis
And with the shrimps' leftovers ?? Shrimp Bisque ! With the vol au vent flowers as croutons !
Thank you very much Steph !!
