I’ve already suggested some recipes for hot dog buns, including the yudane method, which gives a very chewy result. This time I share my method with thangzong, which causes the starch in part of the flour to gelatinize, and ultimately retain more moisture. The result is soft buns, perfect for burgers to devour without qualms!
With autumn setting in and the cold weather inevitably gaining ground, I propose a rich and comforting pie with a foretaste of the end of the year party! A crunchy, low-sugar cocoa and crunchy cocoa nib pastry filled with a dense chocolate cream with a consistency similar to that of chocolate truffles, with a hint of coffee to underline the chocolate and cocoa flavor. A little delight to be enjoyed fresh or at room temperature!
Following my recipe for pumpkin gnocchi, here is a very autumnal recipe for cooking them! I suggest a bed of walnut pumpkin puree, pan-fried gnocchi, crispy sage butter, sprinkled with walnuts and toasted squash seeds! A real delight, both visually and in taste. This dish can of course be accompanied by meat or not, because it is almost enough in itself!
I’m continuing my suggestions of pumpkin for the fall, as it is very easy to use in both sweet and savory recipes. Here are some very simple gnocchi to make. It may just take a while to make them beautifully, but maybe it’s time to spend some time in the kitchen with a few people chatting in anticipation of a good meal! For now I’ll just give you the basic recipe, then I’ll publish very soon a dish in which I put these pretty little colored gnocchi!
I propose you here cooking classes in my workshop in Porte des Lilas! Do not hesitate to contact me for any request for private lessons, lessons for company committees or renting the place to do your own lessons.

The dark, milk and white chocolate will be made live and together. We will make homemade Nutella, pralines, but we will also learn more about cocoa butter and its tempering. We will start this course on Saturday morning around a hot chocolate and learn all the secrets of chocolate: roasting, crushing, winnowing and conching … My book “I make my own chocolate” published by Solar and prefaced by Christophe Michalak, will also be offered during this workshop!

This beautiful brioche comes to us from Brazil where Dona Arlene has kindly accepted to share her recipe with me. We made it together in the state of São Paulo last summer and I was waiting for the right moment to publish it. With fall here, it’s high time for me to put it on my food blog! The pão de abóbora is a very soft bun made with pumpkin flesh, in this case pumpkin. The consistency is a wonder and it’s delicious with a simple semi-salted butter spread on top. I’m a fan, thanks again to Dona Arlene!
