My visit to Herman, the master biscuit maker of St Remy de Provence, and listening to the stories behind his beautiful creations inspired me to do a bit of biscuit making myself. So these are some little dainty ones of my own called ‘langues de chat’ or cats tongues.
Makes about 20... Read more.
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6
With electric beaters, beat the butter with the sugar until pale and fluffy, then add the eggs one by one, beating all the time.
Sift in the flour at the end and mix with a wooden spoon or spatula until smooth.
Split the vanilla pod in half, scrape out the seeds and stir them into the mixture.
Place a silicone baking mat or baking parchment on a baking tray.
Put the biscuit mixture into a pastry bag (a freezer bag cut at the corner will do just as well) and squeeze tongue shapes about 5cm long on to the baking tray about 3cm apart.
Cook for 5-6 minutes, until the biscuits are golden around the edges but still quite pale in the centre.
Remove from the baking tray and cool on a wire rack.
After that it’s easy.
All we do is chop up the strawberries, slice them thinly into a bowl and then pour over the strawberry soup.
We’ll take the crispy golden biscuits out of the oven and we serve them together, a delicious warm or chilled summer dessert.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
