Cooking Made Easy: Riz au Lait*


After so many suggestions I can finally talk to you in detail about my new cooperation partner. Normally I don't extra point out cooperations but this one is really special and near and dear to me. Why? Well first of all it's a cooperation with a super cute online shop located in Luxembourg and Germany and thus a local brand worth supporting. Then again I was able to meet the owners last week and the girls are just too lovely! The store we're talking about is called Cinnamon Home and sells Danish design home accessories. However you'll also be able to find a few fashion accessories and yummy food. And that's exactly where we should come back to the essence of this post: a recipe. And this one is even easier than easy because almost all of the ingredients are directly delivered to you and all you need to add is milk. Calling all of you lazy cooks and breakfast refuseniks! Because when I met the owners of Cinnamon Home last week they brought me this Riz au Lait by Nicolas Vahé. It's a pineapple and mango rice pudding and I really couldn't wait to try it! Here we go with the "recipe":


Ingredients:
1 bottle "Riz au Lait"
1 litre milk


 Directions (given on the bottle):

Pour 1 litre of milk into a saucepan together with the contents of a bottle of Riz au lait. Bring to the boil and then turn down the heat. Stir and simmer for approx. 25 minutes. For a firmer texture reduce a little more. Riz au lait can be enjoyed hot or cold.

I would however suggest starting off with half a litre and then observing how well it is absorbed as you will always be able to add more milk during the simmering process. I enjoyed my rice pudding hot as a breakfast and it was really yummy! The pineapple and mango give it a really exotic taste and it's definitely filling as well.


While I was waiting for the pudding to be ready I scanned the QR code on the bottle top which led me to Nicolas Vahés web page. There you can find even more Riz au Lait varieties and some really creative and yummy looking recipes. Nicolas Vahé is a French chef who moved to Denmark where he worked as a pastry chef before launching his own brand of specialities.
But of course Nicolas Vahé isn't the only brand which you can find on Cinnamon Home. They're also selling individual creations by Rie Elise Larsen, Bloomingville, House Doctor, House of Rym, Hübsch, Nordal and Beejou.
As you might remember I had also promised you a huge giveaway in cooperation with Cinnamon Home but in order to see what lovely things you'll be able to win you'll need to check back tomorrow...



I noticed that I didn't have rice pudding for years but I still love it as much as I did as a child!

  3. Yummy. Pineapple mango sounds delicious. Here in the US, we must disclose when we partner with a company; it's a new law for bloggers. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼
