Holiday Recipe: White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

My baking addiction started when I was in middle school and I made my first chocolate chip cookies. Being a perfectionist and a rule follower, I always preferred baking to cooking, knowing that I needed exactly the perfect amount of flour or the cookies would be too doughy, or whether the butter should be room temperature or melted according to which type of cookie I wanted to make. This inevitably lead to obsessively browsing Pinterest for new and interesting cookie combinations, before stumbling on these beauties: white chocolate chip and cranberry. They’re......

When I asked a couple of French friends if they had any seasonal favorites for the warm weather months the response was that the rich sauces and heavy meats of traditional dishes are most often associated with Winter, and Spring and Summer food consists mostly of salads.

It is a typically French tradition to celebrate l’Epiphanie: this holiday celebrates the day on which the three kings Gaspard, Balthazar and Melchior came to pay their tribute to the world-famous baby born just a couple of weeks before. In French those wise men go by the cool name of Les Rois Mages (the Magi). Though this holiday has lost much of its religious significance in most French families, it has gained a sweeter, much more buttery one in the bargain: on the day of the Epiphany, families share a Galette des......

My initial thought when asked to attend one of Susan Herrmann Loomis’ cooking classes was one of sheer panic. Boasting tuna sweetcorn pasta and a bacon omelette as two of my finest dishes it is safe to say I am no culinary wizard. Upon arrival, however, I couldn’t have been made to feel more at home. Alongside five other students, mostly tourists visiting Paris for a couple of weeks, I was warmly met by Susan and welcomed into her beautiful home kitchen, tucked away in the 6th arrondissement. Having put on our......

As the weather cools down and the holidays get closer, I always look for recipes to make that will keep me warm and that are also festive. Two of my favorite things to make this time of year are vin chaud (hot or mulled wine) and bonhommes de pain d’épices (gingerbread). When I think of either of these, I immediately think of my boyfriend’s family who comes from the Alsace-Lorraine region of France. Both of these treats are traditionally served in this area around the holidays. Go to the Christmas markets in Strasbourg,......
