« Croutons »

Do you know the secret to fry them golden brown and not black ? In other words, do you know how to avoid to burn them while frying?

Use clarified butter to fry them in a frying pan. It’s a kind of « clean » butter where certain solids are removed and only the pure butterfat remains. It supports high temperatures and can be kept for a longer period (store in a dark, cold place).

Instructions

Making your own clarified butter is easy peasy! Melt unsalted butter slowly on a medium-low heat. It takes some minutes, certainly don’t raise the heat in order to rush it. Once the butter is melted, you’ll see a foamy white layer (proteins), use a spoon to skim it. Turn down the heat and let simmer for 10 mins. You’ll see appear a brown layer on the bottom of the pan. Remove from the heat, don’t stir and pour trough a sieve cloth into a jar. The milk components will stay in the cloth. You obtain pure butterfat, clarified butter.

Food Photography for Beginners

For the first time in my life I went to a Food Photography Workshop, one for beginners of course. As I told you already, I started this food blog two years ago because I wanted a « place » for myself where I could stock my food pictures. I didn’t have any clue about followers and I discovered that all of a sudden people liked my pictures. It’s only since the beginning of this year that I actually write a story around my pictures. And I start to share recipes. Now it’s also time to get better in taking nice pictures, with the right colours and accessories that are linked to the story. Just for fun, just because it makes me happy!
