try something new without leaving home

France is the birthplace of gourmets, where food is taken very seriously: a real Frenchman can talk for hours about cooking. It was there that the famous Michelin restaurant guide appeared, which had long gone outside of France. To get closer to haute cuisine and try, for example, the famous veal blanket or fried camembert with lingonberry sauce, you don’t have to go to a Parisian restaurant.

Ignorance of the language is not a problem at the same time – thanks to the video translation technology in Yandex Browser, videos can be immediately watched in Russian with voice-over.

2 chicken breasts
2 slices of white ham
4 slices of Emmental cheese
80 g of flour
120 g small bread
2 eggs
½ tsp rapeseed oil
40 g of butter


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut the chicken breasts lengthwise, but not all the way through, so that you can make pockets out of them yourself. Set small pieces aside. Unwrap the breasts, cover with parchment paper and beat with a pan or a small pan. Then salt, pepper and wrap two slices of cheese in the meat and a piece of ham in between. Cover the edges with scraps so that the filling does not come out during cooking. Then dip the breast with cheese and ham first in flour, then in lightly beaten eggs with salt and pepper, and then in bread. Repeat the last two steps – dip the chicken back into the egg mixture and into the breadcrumbs. Then fry the resulting cutlets in turnip and butter for 2 minutes on each side, and then put in the oven for 5 minutes.
