#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Twelve: Galette des Rois

This week, I decided to tackle a traditional French new year’s cake. Yes, I realise I’m a little late to the game (Hannah Lawrence made hers weeks ago…), but I was still in the festive mood and fancied something seasonal!

#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Eleven: Stoemp

Did you guess from my post last week what I chose for this week? Well…I chose stoemp! Wikipedia defines this is as ‘the richer Brussels variant of the stamppot dish in the cuisine of Belgium and the Netherlands’. Let’s dive into the translation!

#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Ten: Turkey Blanquette

#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Seven: Croissant!

#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Five: Moroccan Zaalouk
