This recipe is for my American friends, who have been over at my kitchen for many a workshop. is not your standard . The big difference is the use of egg yolk. For easy , binding purposes you use the egg yolk. The traditionally is made without one. However, to speed up the process, an egg yolk by all means. The will only turn out slightly different and....... will not be for so long. Come to that, will never keep in my kitchen, it gets finished the same day I make it. Served at room temperature with farmers bread, raw vegetables or as a side dish for Fruits de Mer, you will be making buckets full in no time, because all your demand their portions.
