A lot of people ask me..’Why this name for your company ?’
Because I love this dessert, the simplicity of the recipe, I love the typical French pronunciation of this word, I love the image (or dream!) that I have when I make it..makes me think of the stories of Guy de Maupassant and Emile Zola; one big table with simple, good food and good friends.
Subject of the conversation besides food? Well..everybody has his own dream. Chase yours, respect and accept others and you will realize it.
My company is quite the same..I love my work, I love simplicity, I love France, I love creating and realizing a dream for-and with people, but most of all….I love life (“because what else is there”: Anthony Hopkins).
“Clafoutis, also sometimes spelled clafouti, is a baked dessert which originated in the Limousin region of south-central France. Its name, which derives from the word clafir, meaning “to fill,” provides an accurate hint as to its preparation, which involves lining a dish with cherries and then “filling it up” with a batter mixture. A traditional clafoutis is always made with cherries, although many cooks have adapted the dish to center around their favourite (regional) fruits or even savoury ingredients.
