A dacquoise is a dessert cake made with layers of almond and hazelnut meringue and whipped cream or buttercream. It takes its name from the feminine form of the French word dacquois, meaning 'of Dax', a town in southwestern France. It is usually served chilled and accompanied by fruit. A particular form of the dacquoise is the marjolaine , which is long and rectangular and combines almond and hazelnut meringue layers with chocolate buttercream.
Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup: Will be fabulous if you substitute the creminis for lb of any dried OR wild mushroom' fully hydrated, drained and chopped. Use the soaking liquid towards the total 4 cups of broth needed in the recipe.
