There’s something about a recipe that comes straight from your grandmother’s kitchen that absolutely can’t be beat. They’re typically written in the finest of penmanship and stained with age, love and over-use. And since we’re nearing the end of cherry season (insert soft sobs here), what better way to use the last of this years bounty than with this classic french cherry clafoutis recipe. Brought to us by Steph’s very own late grandmother, it’s truly an honour to be able to share it today. See it all right here in the gallery
