Benoit takes you on a tour in Hamtramck, in Detroit, Michigan, to a Polish bakery, in search of the jelly filled Pączki, the sweet delicacy Polish bakers prepare prior to Lent.

Everybody comes out on Fat Tuesday, for their last chance to fill up on this jelly filled donut.

This is where you need to go for the best Pączki in town.
New Palace Bakery, 9833 Joseph Campau Avenue, Hamtramck, MI 48212

The French word of the day is "Beignet" for donut or pączki
You need to pronounce it PUUNCH-kee

Here we are in #Savoie - southeast France - for a few winter days (with Travel J'Adore), the ideal occasion to taste the wonderful wines and food of the Alps. In between a couple of hikes and snowshoeing excursions (thanks to Christophe from Annecy Adventures), we enjoyed (very much) the specialties of this great mountain region of Annecy, its lake, ski stations and awesome landscapes.

In the farm-restaurant of 'La Charbonnière', we dined alongside the beautiful cows who produced all the cheeses (Reblochon, Abondance, Beaufort, Tomme...). All the meat and cheeses are local, as are the wines (Apremont, Abymes, Jacquère, Mondeuse...). This was so yummy!

If you want to spend some time in the area of Annecy and its lake, consider this short term rental vacation family house for up to 16 guests.

Asparagus are seasonal vegetables and are available in spring. They are fragile and need to be manipulated lightly when moved around and cooked.

Once correctly prepared, they are absolutely delicious and match perfectly with a lemon white sauce. It's almost magical.

You'll find a No Comment video recipe for the lemon white sauce here :

What you will need for asparagus with lemon white sauce is :
- A bunch of fresh asparagus (white or green)
- A cup of lemon white sauce
- 2 or 3 tbsp of freshly chopped or ground parlsey
- Salt

This is a very simple 5 minutes recipe for a beer bread with Corona Extra beer. Corona is good, Corona is refreshing, but mostly Corona is safe. It's a perfect pale lager for a #beer #bread.

The Mexican beer #Corona has had bad press lately, which is a pity. It's an easy beer to drink, so why not use it a little bit differently and bake bread. Hopefully this video goes viral.

Beer bread is super easy to make and tasty too. You don't need to knead nor let it proof for hours.

French word of the day : "bière" for beer

Recipe :
11fl oz of Corona Extra beer
1lb of all purpose flour
1tbsp of baking powder
1tsp of salt
1tsp of sugar

What an adventure my friends. This is a super tasty dish to make and an unusual way of baking a wild #bass fish.
Except for the peeps from the #French Atlantic coast : this is a specialty there. And they use the salt of Guérande to make it even better.

Firstly, I slap the bass - because I can - then I fill this wild whitefish up with fresh #herbs (sage, thyme, rosemary) and pepper corns.
Secondly, I'll cover it with a crust of coarse sea salt, seal it and bake it for 45 minutes.
Thirdly, watch the video to enjoy this marvelous episode.

Recipe :
- A bass fish, scaled and emptied
- Fresh herbs and pepper corns
- Enough coarse sea salt to cover and seal it
- Boiled potatoes, rice, dry white wine, some butter ans shallot sauce

In this "No Comment" episode, Benoit is preparing a quick and tasty fresh pasta dish for dinner.
In 25 minutes tops, you'll get a delightful heart warming plate of fresh pasta and delicious leek and pork chest (optional) sauce.

Recipe for 2 to 3 :
- Fresh pasta for 2 to 3 (Tagliatelles for example)
- 1/2 cup pork chest, diced
- 1 leek, washed and sliced
- Some butter for the frypan
- 2tbsp sour cream
