So many of you have sent me requests and reservations for the little restaurant we are opening in August. It’s all coming together now and in a few days I will set up a special email where you can submit reservations.
I’ve had this dream for a while, to open a little bistrot. 5 years ago we moved to Médoc and since then this idea has been brewing steadily, produce has been sourced, inspected, sampled. “Is this saucisson better than the other saucisson, is this wine as good as that other one?” How sweet should the tomatoes be, how crunchy the bread? We don’t have all the answers but we have come far and now it’s time to share.
Of course I am exaggerating slightly, in fact I very often skip wine at lunch. One must not be too excessive. We are creative bulding wordpress theme! Is this saucisson better than the other saucisson
This makes sense, not only from a gastronomical point of view but also a cultural one. Blanquette de veau and red wine grew up together. When the first ever blanquette was made, the person cooking it knew it would be paired with a simple but satisfying red. Consciously or unconsciously he or she had that in mind when they cooked it. Yellow wine from the Jura region has a special relationship with Comté cheese which is also from Jura. Throw in some fresh walnuts and sparks fly. Or a cold Guinness with Welsh rarebit in an English pub on a chilly autumn day (throw in a steak and kidney pie and even a bag of crisps).
- 280g buckwheat flour
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 3 tsp organic tartar baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
until tender – about 30-45min (turn oven to 100degrees celsius). scrape out pumpkin flesh and blenderize with a bit milk to get a nice purée. melt butter and let cool for a few minutes. whisk pumpkin purée, milk and egg (with beaters of a hand mixer or kitchen machine). blend dry ingredients (flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon) and stir into pumpkin-egg-milk-mixture just until combined (use a cooking spoon or silicone spatula). heat a pan with coconut oil and brown pancakes from both sides (you can use an ice cream scoop – right amount of batter and easy to shape the pancakes), then place in the oven (on tinfoil) until all pancakes are done. serve pancakes with roughly chopped hazelnuts, coconut yoghurt, fig slices, berries and maple syrup.
