Bake to the Roots continues to inspire. E.g., this marvelous looking (and sounding!) Rhubarb Ginger Crumble https://instagram.com/p/1Z-dkvxmVI/ . His Reblochon and pear quiche has me dreaming of the Savoie http://baketotheroots.de/reblochon-pear-quiche/ <br />Not a blog but amazing is this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAK10UAAHIY
