French Fridays with Dorie officially ended with the completion of the book Around My French Table in June. The last 4 weeks of the group including many ten ten lists and favorite recipes. I wrote down everyone’s favorites and vowed to keep cooking on my own. I took a hiatus from the book this summer mostly due to the heat but now that the weather is cooperating I am ready to dive in.
First up Creamy, Cheesy, Garlicky Rice with Spinach (page 380). Not to be compared to risotto which I have not had. This dish was a winner with us. We used it as a side dish for both chicken and salmon and it paired well. I think as an entree it would be too rich but that’s just me.
The group made this back in September of 2011 and you can see their responses here.
