  • Pear and Frangipane Tart

    I have to admit that I haven’t done any Christmas baking this yet. And it probably won’t happen until Christmas. Wait, that’s not true. There will be my mom’s Swedish cinnamon buns on Christmas Day and snickerdoodles over the weekend. Usually I am the poster child for Santa’s bakery, if there ever was one. I’ll […]

  • Chilled Riz Au Lait With Citrus Honey Poached Peaches

    Thank you to everyone who has inquired about the workshop in Charleston. Yes, it is sold out but we do have a waitlist if you are interested. You can send me an email at helenedujardinphoto[at]gmail[dot com]. It’s been a busy May with family here and a busy June but I am ready for summer cooking […]

  • Roasted Carrots With Creme Fraiche & Za’atar & Roasted Plums With Honey & Whipped Cream

    It’s been a while since I visited my own blog, let alone write anything on this page. What can I say? I gave myself an unintentional break by enjoying the most of summer off line. There has been much cooking and photographing but not much free time to sit down and blog about it all. […]

  • Strawberries & Honeydew Melon With Lemon Sugar & Mint

    Feels like Summer is officially here in the South. Don’t let the calendar fool you! I spent my birthday last week in the company of the guy I call my surrogate brother, chef John Ondo, and a group of complete strangers on the beach while doing a food photography and cooking workshop. Well, we were […]

  • Blood Orange Margarita Granita

    Update: While the one day workshops in Auckland, New Zealand are SOLD OUT, there are still spots available for the 2 day workshops I am teaching in Rotorua, New Zealand. (more information HERE) This winter in Alabama has been quite different than all other winters I have spent in the South so far. Colder and […]

  • Apple Walnut Cakes With Mascarpone Cream

    I don’t think I could have enjoyed making these Apple Cinnamon And Walnut Cakes more than this weekend. Rainy and grey weather, still getting over a bad cold and terrible news about someone I loved just made me head out to the kitchen and cook, bake, stir and chop. I also went for a long […]

  • Spiced Poached Pears With Mascarpone Cream & Vanilla Rice Pudding.

    It’s been a long time coming and took a little bit of juggling and re-adjusting positions and schedules but my family is here. My parents, my brother, his wife and my two nieces arrived late Thursday night after a long day of traveling. It’s been nothing but laughter and catching up since then. And it […]

  • Rhubarb & Strawberry Crisps – Spring In A Cup!

    We have been stocking on the bounty of Spring produce left and right lately. Strawberries, peas, rhubarb, ronde de Nice, baby Vidalias, etc… The farmers market is in full swing and my mind is buzzing with photographs to take of all this beauty. It was torture however these past two weeks to cook for two […]

  • Apricots Honey Panna Cotta and Chinese Five Spice Tuna & Stone Fruit Skewers

    Came back from Utah last night and it’s been a day of catching up. Running around. Grocery shopping. Laundry doing. And of course playing with Bill and snuggling with the pups…Wait! Sorry. It’s the other way around! Yep, today feels completely discombobulated. I have had to jump right into work mode this morning and just […]
