This recipe is from France
A terrine is really easy to make and resemble old traditional country food your grandparents use to serve. This one is maybe not the most common one but really delicious. It is best served cold as a starter, or a side dish together with pickles and and potatoes.
Gougère is a French choux dough mixed with gruyère or Comte cheese. The size can be from 3-12 cm., and sometimes it is filled with mushrooms, beef or ham. In the region of Burgundy where they come from they are served cold on the side when tasting wine. This ones are served warm as a starter with a salad and a slice of ham on the side.
This is a perfect and easy recipe for home made baguettes. They get soft on the inside and crispy on the outside, like real baguettes from the bakery. The dough need to rest for 10-12 hours before you can cook them.
