HHDH#20: Playing with Choux
Our first task of Indonesian Baking Club was under choux pastry category. I thought everyone's results on making Paris-Brest was pretty impressive. There were variations using one same recipe.
Gougeres are Paris-Brest cousin, I suppose, so I cook them to fit in the theme Choux for HHDH#20 hosted by Suzanna of Home Gourmets.
From the recipe provided, I only used the choux based and added 50g raclette cheese (Cheddar is okay) and 2 Tbs finely chopped Italian parsley. As soon as they are baked and removed from the oven, I sprinkle ground smoked paprika. They are superb for appetizer or packed for picnic!
I also want to update the Books for Love auctions that I am organizing, in case you're interested in participating or donating your books.

I am so glad that many Indonesian bloggers are participating on this event, raising fund for cancer kids in Indonesia. We don't really put any target as I do believe that generosity does not have to be underlined on amount of money, however, as I say, even a dollar does count.
One thing that makes me put more hope on international bloggers that the fact I do believe there are still many people out there who care about other people. Christelle Le Ru is one of gourmet author in New Zealand. She's a French and she helps Books for Love project by donating 10 copies of her books. How generous of her and I thank her so much that she takes part on this.
