My daughter and I have been busy, busy, coming up with sweet and savory treats to serve at the Sabrage fundraiser for her fencing school this weekend.
|My daughter is to the right in white.|
Sabrage is the art of opening a champagne bottle with a sword or sabre that dates back to Napoleonic times in France. It is also a really cool trick to learn for New Year's Eve. I'm sure your friends will only think you are a crazy sabre wheeling person for a moment, before they are impressed by seeing you pop the cork off a bottle with Savoir faire!
If you are interested in learning the art of Sabrage please visit my Monday post: Speckloos and the Art of Sabrage.

OK, sabres, champagne… ah yes, dessert…which brings me to Coco Sables. If you are a dark chocolate lover who enjoys a little saltiness, this is the cookie for you. I can't stop eating these… I'm trying to ration one per coffee break over the week.
Besides the intense chocolate taste of these cookies the simplicity of making them is wonderful. Just make and roll the dough into a log, refrigerate for a few hours, slice and bake. It is also really nice to roll them in granulated sugar as you will see in the
recipe for Coco Sables.
Note: The salt flavor is really light. I was thinking of adding more and maybe rolling the edges in a sugar salt mixture.
Enjoy and En garde!
