Coffee Tuiles Recipe – Crisp French Wafers

 Coffee Tuiles Recipe - Crisp French Wafers

Coffee flavored French dessert with lace, coffee tuiles. Those crisp French wafers are perfect little sweet treats by themselves. But these are frequently served in a dessert for exquisite finish at better restaurants in Paris. Sweet crisp tuiles are especially good with soft desserts such as ice cream and creme caramel (custard pudding).

I made tuiles for the first time at the cooking school in Paris. It was a part of basic pastry course. I thought it was easy. But it wasn’t exactly so since the wafers got stiffen fast out of oven and I didn’t have enough time to transfer the tuiles on the rolling pins.

On my Facebook tuiles were requested a few times  and I thought I should write this recipe as soon as possible because these were one of the basics in French pastry. And today I am finally writing this post. Yay!

There are two types of tuiles: no lace version (such as almond tuiles) and laced tuiles. Today I am making coffee tuiles with lace, tuiles dentelles. The recipe is pretty simple.

A Little Bit about Me & Cooking Schools in Paris

lcb-parisDemo class with chef Cotte - Le Cordon Bleu Paris

I got an email from a student who was interested in cooking schools in Paris the other day. So I thought it would be great to share some info with all of you as well.

First, I will start with my story. I studied French in France. Then I wanted cooking as a hobby, so I registered at LCB Paris. I chose Le Cordon Bleu because I thought it was the best choice: you know it is the school where Audrey Hepburn (Sabrina) baked soufflé. Back then I vaguely knew about Ferrandi, so I wasn’t sure. And I knew Ritz but the school I recognized was the one in Switzerland, not the one in Paris.
