“These savory 'cakes' are popular in France and in Canada. They freezes well and wrapped in aluminum foil will keep for several days in the fridge. I found this recipe on a website - Pronounced: cake / oh / koor zhet / oh / pee no(n) - and I have posted it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. Serve this as an appetizer, or for breakfast or brunch, or as a dessert.”
