October 2009 Desktop Calendar

October '09 Desktop Calendar

At the beginning of every month in 2009, I am offering C&Z readers a new desktop calendar, i.e. a wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.

Our desktop calendar for October is a picture of lemon butter cookies, as they appear in my cookbook. Delicately buttery, crisp, and thinly glazed, these sablés au citron draw their flavor from the juice and zest of a lemon, bolstered by a touch of salt. They’re a staple from my childhood I revisit often.

At the beginning of every month in 2009, I am offering C&Z readers a new desktop calendar, i.e. a wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.

Our desktop calendar for September is a picture of Mussels Marinière, a preparation of mussels cooked here with Champagne and a pinch of saffron — though the recipe can absolutely be made more budget-friendly, with a simple white wine. With or without the deluxe ingredients, it is a lovely dish, light and warming both, to ease you into the fall.

June 2009 Desktop Calendar

June '09 Desktop Calendar

At the beginning of every month in 2009, I am offering C&Z readers a new desktop calendar, i.e. a wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.

Our desktop calendar for June is a picture of gariguette strawberries taken at the Anvers greenmarket.

Maxence is in fact growing strawberry plants in one of our window boxes this year, and like the wild strawberries of a few summers ago, they are in great shape. Of course each of our two little plants is delivering its fruits sparingly, making us extra grateful for each of the delicious berries they yield, but also making it necessary to turn to the pros for the rest of my needs — I have my mother’s strawberry tart and ichigo daifuku to make!

What about you — care to share your favorite ways to use fresh strawberries?
