French Toast Palm Beach, a Chef’s Handyman Summer Souvenir!
Holidays are very welcome. The beach, good food and fun! Especially the food is very important. Do they cook different from home? What is the favorite ingredient or meal? I love to go abroad, to get new ideas.
The next series in the Chef’s Handyman Recipe Blog does contain summer souvenirs from Florida. I got new ideas for the Chef’s Handyman recipe blog when travelling around Florida. The French toast at the Breakers Palm Beach www.thebreakers.com was like a summer dream. There will be no way. I have to share this awesome recipe in the Chef’s Handyman recipe blog. The French toast can be served for breakfast or as sweet lunch and for dinner as well. A smaller portion can be prepared also for dessert.
Chef’s Handyman tip for the recipe blog: French toast for 4 serves, dessert version.
