Yesterday, on May 16th, we participated in "Jamie Oliver´s Food Revolution Day 2014" – which has been so aptly described as “ a global day of action aimed to inspire people to get cooking (or baking) and champion better food skills for people of all ages”.
For the French Friday with Dorie group that means the assignment was a so-called "cook´s choice", meaning that the participants were free to choose one of the recipes from Dorie Greenspan´s cookbook “Around my French Table” and, in line with this year’s theme for Food Revolution Day “let´s get kids get excited about food", I chose the Corn Pancakes form Dorie´s book, a recipe we cooked back in June 2012 and that I have prepared many, many times since.
The kids love these little French pancakes, especially when I prepare them together with a tangy, springtime fresh radish-cress dip. So that´s what we prepared. Among other things.
We had a dozen kids for lunch at our house and there was a lot of food that we prepared and shared.
And there was lots of desserts too.
