    Viva le French Friday!

      Thanks for the step-by-step photos! They are very helpful for the newbies. :)

    What a great way to start! These are quick to make, beautiful to look at, and yummy to eat. http://peggydempsey.blogspot.com/

    French Fridays with Dorie: Gougères and a glass of Kriek … a perfect Autumn night in!

    Made mini ones and full size and they were delicious!

  5. lizzy September 30, 2010 at 5:52 PM #

    Oh, these were fantastic…my son ate 6 before dinner!!!


  6. Kendra September 30, 2010 at 6:49 PM #

    These are so good and easy!! Love that you can freeze them and bake them later!


  7. cris0809 September 30, 2010 at 7:09 PM #

    I made these tonight for dinner along with provençal vegetable soup from the soup chapter. I made them a little larger and got 24. They were so tasty that even though it was just my husband and I half of them are gone. http://twitpic.com/2tgh2u

    • LW September 30, 2010 at 7:14 PM #

      They look awesome! Now that its getting colder here in PA, I am looking forward to hitting the soup chapter hard.

      • cris0809 September 30, 2010 at 7:30 PM #

        Well here in Florida it’s not so cold yet but it has been gray and rainy the last few days! Seemed appropriate. I made them with Dorie’s cheese suggestion for the U.S. – sharp cheddar (white, extra sharp).

        • Deborah Balint October 1, 2010 at 3:42 PM #

          I made mine with extra sharp cheddar as well. They were tasty!

    • barefootkitchenwitch October 1, 2010 at 9:33 AM #

      I made mine with sharp cheddar, too. Yours look great!

  8. gaaarp September 30, 2010 at 7:37 PM #

    My post will be up in the morning tomorrow (Friday). These were sooooo good!!


  9. Jacque September 30, 2010 at 8:21 PM #

    I guess it’s OK to post now? Please let me know if not…


  10. KateFlourish September 30, 2010 at 8:34 PM #

    So, so good. Here they are!


    • Deborah Balint October 1, 2010 at 3:43 PM #

      Those look gorgeous! Love the light hitting their delicate domes.

  11. KY September 30, 2010 at 9:03 PM #

    My post will be up when it’s Friday here in 3 hours’ time. :)


  12. Macarun September 30, 2010 at 10:10 PM #

    Great first recipe! http://macarunllc.wordpress.com/

    • AC September 30, 2010 at 10:56 PM #

      I will toast to that, too, Elaine :)

  13. Elaine Corwin September 30, 2010 at 10:29 PM #

    Perhaps if I could read my notes I could get the correct URL. I’ll try again. Sorry.

    • AC September 30, 2010 at 10:57 PM #

      Oh, how festive your props are! I love it!

    • barefootkitchenwitch October 1, 2010 at 9:53 AM #

      Loved your pictures!

  14. AC September 30, 2010 at 10:49 PM #

    Hooray!!! I am so thrilled to see everyone’s gougères! :) http://wannabeatelierista.blogspot.com/2010/09/gougeres.html

  15. wanderlustforfood September 30, 2010 at 10:52 PM #

    These are dangerously addictive!


    • AC September 30, 2010 at 10:58 PM #

      True story; it’s like eating fancy cheese-its. You could eat a handful of them :)

  16. Sweetbites September 30, 2010 at 11:06 PM #

    I could eat the all day long, with everything! Totally worth the $7 for the block of Gruyere cheese.


  17. Sugary Goodness (Kim) September 30, 2010 at 11:26 PM #

    My first ever blog post…looking forward to many more French Fridays!

  18. Gritsgal September 30, 2010 at 11:32 PM #

    I’m new here and really excited to get started tomorrow (soon!). Here’s my link, they were quite lovely.


  19. Judy22 October 1, 2010 at 12:11 AM #

    They disappeared way too quickly. Post will be up shortly after midnight pacific time.


  20. SisBoom October 1, 2010 at 12:25 AM #

    I had a lot of fun making these!

    Trevor. Sis. boom.

  21. Serene October 1, 2010 at 12:25 AM #

    My post will be up after midnight, Pacific, but the URL will be http://www.momfoodproject.com/2010/10/01/french-fridays-with-dorie-gougeres/ and now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I can go up the list and look at all of yours. Thanks, everyone! This is my first Dorie event and I’m so excited.

  22. Natashya KitchenPuppies October 1, 2010 at 12:28 AM #

    I love how simple she made pâté à choux! Dorie is the master.

    • KY October 1, 2010 at 12:34 AM #

      Great pictures, just like from a cookbook!

    • barefootkitchenwitch October 1, 2010 at 8:52 PM #

      Beautiful gougeres!

  23. scrambledhenfruit October 1, 2010 at 12:38 AM #

    These savory little puffs went perfectly with our soup on a rainy evening!

    • Create Amazing Meals October 4, 2010 at 8:40 PM #

      I have Portmeirion Botanic Garden dishes, too! They look wonderful with everything. Your gougeres turned out great.

      Looking forward to cooking with you!

  24. yummychunklet October 1, 2010 at 1:09 AM #

    I loved this recipe! http://yummychunklet.wordpress.com/

  25. onewetfoot October 1, 2010 at 1:49 AM #

    Such a good, easy recipe with elegant results. Here’s my link (live after midnight Pacific Time): http://onewetfoot.wordpress.com/2010/10/01/ffwd-gougeres/

    • Deborah Balint October 1, 2010 at 3:48 PM #

      Lucky you to have fresh organic eggs. I too had always thought these would be much harder to make. I was surprised at how easy they were and the puffed up beautifully. Your gougeres look terrific!

  26. PheMom October 1, 2010 at 2:15 AM #

    Bask in the cheesy goodness! Happy first recipe everyone!


  27. mardi@eatlivetravelwrite October 1, 2010 at 5:48 AM #

    I made gougères AND the onion soup – used the leftover gougères in the soup – YUM!!!!


  28. josefa October 1, 2010 at 6:30 AM #

    So excited about French Fridays!


  29. Marie Alice October 1, 2010 at 7:07 AM #

    My post is up: http://theenglishkitchen.blogspot.com/2010/10/french-fridays-and-gougeres-with-dorie.html

    So many lovely looking gougeres ladies!! Well done!

  30. Jennifer October 1, 2010 at 7:08 AM #

    These are divine! I made the gougeres using a good quality guyere ahead, froze and baked while guests were arriving. My guests were lots of college friends, some I had not seen since grad day some 26 years ago! A risk to serve something I had not made before, but felt more than comfortable as Dorie never lets me down. A bite of gougeres and a sip of champagne – perfection. All raved, wanted the recipe and many are running to get Dorie’s book. The leftovers were gobbled up at breakfast the next morning, which were excellent with fresh fruit, bacon and mimosas.

    I don’t have a blog so I’ll post a short bit here. And no pictures this week – darn, I guess I’ll just have to make more!

    Many thanks to Dorie and FFw/D staff for creating this online cooking club and including non-bloggers; and thanks to all my fellow “club members”. I really, really enjoy reading your posts.

  31. Dagny October 1, 2010 at 7:24 AM #

    Yay! It’s here. Happy Friday : )


  32. napangel October 1, 2010 at 7:59 AM #

    These are without a doubt the best gougeres I’ve made. My youngest son asked if we could have them again this weekend. I think we will!


  33. popsiclesandsandyfeet October 1, 2010 at 8:24 AM #

    I loved it. I know that is not very original, but I just loved it!


  34. Dorie October 1, 2010 at 8:24 AM #

    It’s so exciting to see everyone’s posts — welcome, hooray and bravo!

    I’ve just posted a little behind-the-scenes look at how the gougeres photo for Around My French Table was shot. Hope you enjoy it.


  35. Spike October 1, 2010 at 8:37 AM #

    little treasures

  36. kudoskitchen October 1, 2010 at 8:50 AM #

    The smell of these baking in the oven were pure heaven. The taste was equally delightful.

  37. Joanna October 1, 2010 at 9:05 AM #

    These were just perfect for a fall afternoon…and highly addictive. It took no time for us to devour the 24! What a great start to FFwD. http://plixi.com/p/48104534

    • barefootkitchenwitch October 2, 2010 at 7:04 AM #

      Stilton sounds yummy in these – I’ll have to try that some time!

  38. barefootkitchenwitch October 1, 2010 at 9:06 AM #


    I can see I’m going to have to work on that self-control thing again…these are way too good.

  39. Marci October 1, 2010 at 9:08 AM #

    This was great kick-off recipe! My husband and I were amazed how easily everything came together and how wonderful these little jewels were. Dorie’s talented way of “talking” through each step was like having a mentor right there in the kitchen with you.

    We used gruyere as that seemed to be the standard, and the toasty, nuttiness was delicious. We froze some to bake and serve this weekend with the Mustard Tart. This should be an impressive and elegant meal. I’m still trying to decide whether to serve champagne or a kir cocktail with the gougeres…maybe we will try both!

    I hope to post pictures next week. This is great fun!

  40. teaandscones October 1, 2010 at 9:31 AM #

    What a great way to start a new month!!


    Easy!! Fun!! Tasty!!

  41. dulce85255 October 1, 2010 at 9:58 AM #

    What a great start!!!


  42. Shandy October 1, 2010 at 10:03 AM #

    The anticipation for today was so much fun!!! I absolutely LOVE “around my french table” and this French Fridays with Dorie blogsite is AMAZING!!!!

    Thank you everyone for allowing all of us to share in the excitement of this beautiful and delicious new cookbook!


  43. greek_goddess57 October 1, 2010 at 10:12 AM #

    Finally FFwD has begun! I loved the smell and taste of baked Gruyère!!


  44. michelle aetonu October 1, 2010 at 10:13 AM #

    the gougeres were simply fantastic. can’t wait to try the next recipe!


  45. jemangepdx October 1, 2010 at 11:06 AM #

    Here’s mine: http://www.jemangelaville.com/2010/10/01/ffwd-1-gougeres/
    They were so good! I’m glad I still have a bunch in my freezer ;-)

  46. Kat October 1, 2010 at 11:13 AM #

    Okay, here’s mine! Applewood smoked natural cheddar gougeres.

  47. Nicole October 1, 2010 at 11:23 AM #

    I had always heard these were super hard, thanks for making them so easy…and tasty.


  48. frolickingnightowl October 1, 2010 at 11:39 AM #

    GREAT recipe!! A keeper for me!! Anyone have any thoughts on making them with Parmesan cheese???


    • Nicole October 1, 2010 at 2:44 PM #

      My fear was that they might be greasy with Parm. Just a thought, I have not tried it.

    • Miss Kris Kitchen October 1, 2010 at 11:17 PM #

      Enjoyed your blog writeup. Of course, I’m biased, but it is the best! I’ve just read through most of the comments and this is a fun new hobby for me. I hope to get better at all this over the next year…not only some good cooking projects, but some good blog friends and blog use education too. Be happy to share some mustard with you for our tart bakes.

    • frolickingnightowl October 2, 2010 at 12:40 AM #

      I tried my frozen cheese puffs tonight for dinner. They turned out even better. I think I’ll keep playing with the recipe for years to come….


    • Genkinaonna October 2, 2010 at 1:25 AM #

      I used dry jack, which is similar to parm, and they were amazing…like, don’t care that your mouth is burning, straight out of the oven, amazing. Not greasy at all and mine had bacon in them too!

    • gigi October 2, 2010 at 12:27 PM #

      Hi Frolicking Night Owl, I made mine with Parmesan and they were great!

    • gigi October 3, 2010 at 8:49 AM #

      I remade my Gougeres last night with Gruyere (instead of Parmesan that I used the first time) and I think I like Parmesan better! My batch last night came out rather moist, and I’m not sure if it was due to the cheese or if it was due to the fact that I made the actual Gougeres bigger this batch. I took them out when they were all golden brown, but they seemed a bit moist and egg-ie. I’m actually not sure they are done enough, but they looked done on the outside.

    • 1cup October 1, 2010 at 1:51 PM #

      I thought we weren’t to post the recipe?

      • LW October 1, 2010 at 2:11 PM #

        Correct! Sometimes people forget. I sent a kindly note. :)

  49. Katrina October 1, 2010 at 12:16 PM #

    Wow, that’s a lot of posts!
    I made mine with manchego and smoked paprika for a little Spanish flair.

    • jemangepdx October 1, 2010 at 12:25 PM #

      Hey! That’s exactly what I want to try next! :)
      I sprinkled a little smoked paprika on the top of my cheddar ones and was thinking of using manchego next. Awesome!

    • Deborah Balint October 1, 2010 at 3:50 PM #

      Manchego cheese is one of my favorites…I will have to try that next time.

  50. Deborah Balint October 1, 2010 at 12:22 PM #

    I made these last night and my entire family loved them! I split my batch in half, putting one in the oven and one in the freezer, and both worked perfectly! They had such a lovely light texture. I used sharp cheddar cheese in mine. Here’s a link to my photo…hopefully this will work(please let me know if you can’t see it) as I don’t have a blog…yet!


  51. Elle October 1, 2010 at 12:29 PM #

    Ok so mine were apparently not as successful as everyone elses, but I’m very very new to anything that goes on in the realm of baking, so bear with me. I’ll be giving them a try again this weekend.


    • Genkinaonna October 2, 2010 at 1:38 AM #

      Don’t get discouraged, I think everyone here has had at least one kitchen fail! We’re all learning and I’m sure by the end of this challenge everyone will have grown quite a bit as bakers and cooks!

  52. lindsay_s October 1, 2010 at 12:52 PM #

    Great recipe – I have wanted to make these for such a long time! It reminded me a lot of making eclairs. My husband and I ate them with a big green salad and a glass of kir. And better yet…it’s got me in the mood for fondue.

    I didn’t have time this week to write a blog entry, but definitely will for the mustard tart recipe next week!

  53. walkingchick October 1, 2010 at 12:58 PM #

    I totally forgot about posting!! Better late than never…


  54. NummyKitchen October 1, 2010 at 12:59 PM #

    So excited to be cooking with everyone! These were delicious :)


  55. Chez Us October 1, 2010 at 1:01 PM #

    Love that you are doing this Laurie! Here is my link.


  56. knittybaker October 1, 2010 at 1:08 PM #

    I never made savory cream puffs before, and these are fabulous and easy!

  57. Susan @ SGCC October 1, 2010 at 1:11 PM #

    These were wonderful! Here’s my link: http://stickygooeycreamychewy.com/2010/10/01/ffwd-gougeres/

    These are so yummy! http://www.heathersbytes.com/french-friday-gougeres/

  59. katsilcock October 1, 2010 at 1:30 PM #


    I’ve made the gougeres – love them! One of my favourite nibblies to make and this is a great new recipe to use! However I don’t have a blog and thought that we should be able to post a pic directly to the site. Unfortunately I have no idea how to do it. Any suggestions?

    • jemangepdx October 1, 2010 at 2:09 PM #

      Hmmm…Maybe post a pic on flickr and post the link here?

    • katsilcock October 1, 2010 at 2:46 PM #

      Sadly, no access to flickr from my current location. Any other thoughts?

      • LW October 1, 2010 at 3:08 PM #


        • katsilcock October 1, 2010 at 6:28 PM #

          I’m one of the few not on twitter and no access to it or facebook here either. Might be able to access FB later, but had understood from Dorie’s post on the subject that we could post directly to this site?

          • LW October 1, 2010 at 6:51 PM #

            We have no way for pictures to be uploaded by members. I will create a flickr group for the people without a blog. That should solve the problem. :)

          • LW October 1, 2010 at 7:01 PM #


          • katsilcock October 2, 2010 at 1:13 PM #

            Awesome – thanks! Was finally able to post them last night.

  60. 1cup October 1, 2010 at 1:33 PM #

    I don’t blog, so no pictures, but that is just as well this week. Do to some medical issues my taste-tester is having, I didn’t bake the gougeres this week. I did make them but stuck them in the freezer unbaked. And since they are best warm, I couldn’t take the to work for tasting either. Maybe things will go better for next week.

    But I am truly enjoying reading other’s blogs.

  61. natalia October 1, 2010 at 1:37 PM #

    Ciao ! I’m so excited for all the wonderful cooking that is ahead of us !! Great start !


  62. InsomniMom-Shelley October 1, 2010 at 1:41 PM #

    INSOMNIMOM — Here’s my link: http://insomnimom.blogspot.com/2010/10/french-fridays-with-dorie-gougeres-week.html

    I took several pictures, but forgot to take a picture of a gougere broken open to show the empty inside. My family fell on them straight out of the oven like a band of starving scavengers, so there aren’t any more to photograph.

  63. Kim at Stirring the Pot October 1, 2010 at 1:45 PM #

    This was my first time making gougeres and eating them! I was expecting them to be difficult to make, but they were so easy. Definitely a fantastic recipe.


  64. claudine October 1, 2010 at 1:46 PM #

    nothing better then Gougeres… excited for the first week and ready for the November list.

    Here’s the link: http://realnobodyslikeus.typepad.com/real_nobodys_like_us/2010/10/french-fridays-with-dorie-goug%C3%A8res.html

  65. luciacara October 1, 2010 at 1:47 PM #

    Great recipe! I made mine with an exact 1 tablespoon scoop & got 66 gougeres. My husband & I ate 36 of them :) and froze the rest. I used Parano cheese which made for a mild but still delicious gougere – perfect for preceding our fish dinner.

    My pictures: http://cookingluciacara.blogspot.com/

    I plan to spend a good portion of my weekend checking all of your blogs!

  66. evilcakelady October 1, 2010 at 1:50 PM #

    These were so easy and incredibly delicious! I just baked a few frozen ones in my toaster oven and they came out perfect.


  67. Emily Rose October 1, 2010 at 2:16 PM #


    I’m going to be making these over and over again! So easy and beautiful!

  68. Miss Kris Kitchen October 1, 2010 at 2:35 PM #


    What great fun I had with this baking project! I tried a new cheese, and then made these delicious puffs using different cheeses…4 batches were “tasted” by family, the office, and the neighborhood. We love them! Looking forward to next week’s tart and getting to know some different mustards. For me, a great challenge to try some different ingredients!

  69. recipeas4u October 1, 2010 at 2:39 PM #

    Is there anything more beautiful than warm pastry filled with cheese hot out of the oven: http://t.co/XAk6uBz

    I haven’t made gougères in years-don’t know why! Thanks Dorie for reminding me how wonderful they are with a glass of red wine and good friends. Popped a few in the freezer for future-week one was fun. Look forward to seeing you in Austin in October.

    • barefootkitchenwitch October 5, 2010 at 9:21 AM #

      Your gougeres look great!

  70. koismith October 1, 2010 at 2:51 PM #

  71. jbuker October 1, 2010 at 3:14 PM #

    What a delicious way to start!


  72. AnneStrawberry October 1, 2010 at 4:16 PM #

    So… Somehow I messed up my subscription and wasn’t getting the posts, until I saw Laurie’s gougeres and realized we had started! I’d love to make these today but my book is at home and I’m away so if anyone could email me the recipe that would be great. Everyone’s look lovely already and I can’t wait to dive into the book!

    These were so delicious, and a soon-to-be fixture at my dinner/ cocktail parties!


  74. beccaporter October 1, 2010 at 5:26 PM #

    I am excited to be a part of this!

    I enjoyed these, even if they did not turn out quite right for me:

    Just found this today – better late than never!

  79. beth@thescreenporch October 1, 2010 at 7:35 PM #

    How easy were these elegant little gems!?! I can’t wait to make them again with a great filling.

  80. luciacara October 1, 2010 at 7:36 PM #

    okay, all these mouthwatering pictures & posts got to me…I am putting the frozen leftovers in the oven NOW!

  81. ST October 1, 2010 at 7:56 PM #

    First blog post ever! These were so good!

  82. Kepa October 1, 2010 at 8:06 PM #

    This is a very good recipe…

  83. gigi October 1, 2010 at 8:08 PM #

    I loved making these! They came out just like Dorie said they would!

  84. Tania October 1, 2010 at 8:33 PM #

    I loved these….will make these often.

    Here is the link to my Goureges….


  85. pup October 1, 2010 at 8:37 PM #

    These were easy to make!! Great Job everyone!!

    The first of what I know will be many great recipes!


  87. Lana October 1, 2010 at 9:33 PM #

    What a wonderful experience it was! Looking forward to many more trials and challenges.


  88. jeni October 1, 2010 at 9:33 PM #

    I loved making the gougeres. They were very easy and delicious. I enjoyed them with a friend and a glass of Veuve Clicquot. Now if I were just in France….

    Barely made it on Friday, but here it is!

    I had SO much fun making these! This is my first time doing a blog event and also my first foray into French cuisine. It was a great way to start. :)

    Great recipe!

    Nothing like being down to the wire finishing a post…

    I put mine up on flickr too but I’m going to have everything on my Facebook as well…

    My first attempt at Goureges was less than successful. Must try again!

    I posted photos early Friday morning but was unsure as to how to leave thie link to facebook…thankfully others have shown the way! The girls at the office loved them yesterday…one request to add garlic…sounds tasty! Another Dorie keeper!

    What an easy treat! As I’m a party of one, I decided to experiment and froze some Gougeres before and after baking. Of course, I couldn’t resist sampling!

    I posted my blog yesterday but wasn’t exactly sure where to post my link- I’ve got it now :) Everyone’s blog looks so wonderful! Can’t wait to keep cooking with FFwD!!

    Dang. LATE posting on the very first recipe. My bad.


  102. Becky O. October 2, 2010 at 2:29 PM #

    I loved these! I was shocked at how easy they were to make. I used a local Gruyere. Funny thing too, we tried to bring some over to our neighbors…they weren’t home and we ended up eating the whole plate before we got back to our house. :) So delicious!


    Can’t wait for the Mustard Tart. I’m making the tart dough today.

    Very savory. A great success!

    So easy and lovely. I have made gougeres many times and they were not hard but a bit of a chore by hand. Thanks for providing instructions for a mixer. I used Gruyere and my new discovery of the small ice-cream scoop (with a slide scraper) to drop them and make them consistent. They’re larger than I have made before but really pretty. When I tried a pastry bag (at which I’m not adept) they looked like little dog turds (sorry!). These were so great with a sprinkle of fleur de sel on top before baking.

    • adamsclewes October 2, 2010 at 10:00 PM #

      I also froze the extra dough in my mini muffin tin. Perfect size.

    • LaJuana October 4, 2010 at 11:14 AM #

      I was wondering if an ice cream/cookie scoop would work! I’ll try that next time…and the fleur de sel on top sounds terrific. Thanks for sharing your discoveries!

    Laurie, I posted on the 1st, but I realize that I forgot to LYL. Sorry – It happens to me sometimes.

    My week got away from me and I realize I have missed the Friday posting deadline, but at the risk of being a “non-rule follower” I’m still going to post my gougeres! They are too good not to throw in my two cents. http://tiny.cc/2rks1

    Also, everybody’s blogs look amazing! Can’t wait for next Friday…..

    I missed the Friday post but I said I was going to do this so here goes…..http://147charlbury.wordpress.com/

    These were fun to make! I wondered if a mere 1 Tbsp of batter would make a decent size puff. They were perfect looking. They were perfect tasting. With a glass of champagne, they made a lovely starter for the adults. With a mug of tomato soup, they were popular sides with the children. I have frozen a batch of dough for later.

    My first blog… Started just for FFwD! I’m still learning the ins and outs… These were good!


  112. KWAB October 3, 2010 at 10:57 PM #

    These were absolutely fabulous…but I am late posting my link.

  113. Nicole October 3, 2010 at 11:14 PM #

    Wow, nice job everyone. I had no idea there would be so many posts. Every time I come back there are a few more to check out.

  114. AmyRuthBakes October 4, 2010 at 1:31 AM #

    I know its Sunday…. at least here it is. So it goes!
    Here is a link to Dorie’s fabulous gougères. Puffy & Delicious! :”)


  115. michelle October 4, 2010 at 4:30 PM #

    I love these, thank you , thank you for letting me make something my gramma made weekly and I never knew how to make until now!!!

    superb with freshly pressed apple juice from our local county!


    • luciacara October 4, 2010 at 7:38 PM #

      That is so nice about you & your gramma & the gougeres! My grandmother was the main cook & baker in my life so I can relate to that & I’m so glad to know how to make her food & be able to share it with my husband & kids :)

  116. chelseapj October 4, 2010 at 6:22 PM #

    Ok.. These were definitely a first try recipe.. HAHA… They were really easy to make however my one suggestion would be if you live in a high altitude to increase the flour you put in by just a few tablespoons… but other than that they were fabulous… I have been so busy but I will post pics tonight…

  117. tinywino October 4, 2010 at 9:38 PM #

    Here are my Gougeres! I took the photo on my phone, its ok, but it’s all stormy out so there isn’t a lot of light coming in and everything looks yellow. I have to try them again because I burned them thanks to my super annoying oven.

  118. Tabitha October 5, 2010 at 11:34 AM #

    I’m soooo late on this link. I made the gougeres early, but forgot to post! Will do better this week… http://ifittastesgooditisgood.blogspot.com/2010/10/92310-gougeres.html

  119. Lindsey October 6, 2010 at 7:55 PM #

    Well into week 2 & just posting the lovely gougeres…better late than never! So glad to join in the fun!


  120. rainydaykitchen October 6, 2010 at 10:39 PM #

    I’m late too! Had to get the blog set up first.


  121. Lauren85 October 8, 2010 at 7:40 AM #

    Hello, I missed week one but I have made Gerard’s Mustard Tart! However I am very confused as to where I need to leave my link for it… I can’t see post your link for the tart. Am I too early? (I am on Australian time!) I am very excited about this and this is my first post ever!

    Okay, this is late late late, but so worth it.


  125. mgamble October 14, 2010 at 9:19 PM #

    A few weeks late and no pics. I’ll get it together soon.

    Running a tad behind, but none-the-less sincere! Here’s my post on Gougeres:

    These were so fantastic! I know that they will be a feature on our dinner table for years to come!
