Teach me how to make Cancoillotte cheese from things I can buy in an American supermarket or (unlikely) where to buy it for shipment to the USA (Nebraska). [more inside]
On Saturday, I'm having a french themed cooking party. The idea is that we all cook collaboratively to make a meal together. So far we have five confirmed guests. So far we Cassoulet and Reiene de Saba (cake) on the menu. Please suggest ideas for menu items and ways to pull off the timing. I have an induction cook top with five burners, two ovens, a fairly large kitchen with lots of counter space, and most basic cooking implements-but if there's something specialized you think I should have, please share that too! Also I own mastering the art of French cooking and the joy of cooking so I'd like to stick to recipes in those cookbooks or available on the web! thanks!
