In total, we received no less than 900 entries in the giveaway offered to our French and American fans.

In the end here are your Top 3 recipes from our blog:

The mango ice cream from the Vanuatu archipelago in the Pacific. This creamy dessert prepared by Joanne last month.

Recipe # 2:

The trifle, this iconic British dessert that Mike made for his birthday in March. A delicious treat with a history as rich as the dessert itself!
