You may not know that I begun my career as a mathematician. So it is normal that I celebrate the spirit of Pi Day. This celebration occurs every year on March 14th in reference to the irrational number Pi = 3.1415926535…
If you are interested by this mystic number, I suggest you read Contact (the film was a poor imitation), a novel by Carl Sagan.
If you recalled your mathematics, Pi represents the relationship between a circle’s diameter (its width) and its circumference (the distance around the circle).
Fruit pies and savory tarts
I watched today an old episode of French Food at home by Laura Calder. It happens to be on savory tarts. I listened to it because I thought the tarts can be the heart of your menu for this Easter brunch. It is funny that is occurred on Pi Day. It is typical on Pi Day to eat a fruit pie.
Here are some cool recipes for a Sunday brunch:
- Country Apple Pie
- Quiche 2 – filled with sauteed fennel, crumbled blue cheese, and toasted walnuts
- Wild Mushroom and Asiago Quiche
- Onion Cheese Tart
- Baby Endive Tarte Tatins
- Spinach Wheel – wonderful with a glass of Champagne

Thank you so much for the recipes. I hadn’t given my menu a thought until right now. Oh my. Good thing I came here. I love the fennel/blue cheese one.
Love the look of your blog. Are you shovelling your roof?
