Today I am really excited to host a guest post from a special guest on the blog. My friend Jenna from the blog Bistro de Jenna is very famous on the French blogosphere and we can easily understand why.
Living in the beautiful French region of Provence in the South of France, Jenna suggests on her blog many mouthwatering regional recipes using fresh and seasonal ingredients. She is also very talented when it comes to food photography and her pictures are gorged with all the sun from her lovely region!
Breaking language barriers, I translated for you her guest post from French into English. You have here an easy bun recipe that you can use for your homemade burger recipes! Incidentally, I wrote a Nordic Salmon Burger recipe on my blog a few weeks ago and I think these lovely buns would complement the recipe perfectly. You can now make your own burgers entirely from scratch!
"When Delphine asked me if I could write a guest post for her I immediately accepted. I went for a burger buns recipe because everyone love it." Jenna, Bistro de Jenna.
