Why Musette! You look so fresh!

Wow! I just can’t believe that this little blog has been cooking along with Le Tour de France for 7 years; and that year-on-year you lovely readers keep coming back to check us out. Thank you! With 7 years under our belt however, we thought it might be time for a little spring clean and…

Saddle Up with Musette for the Tour de France 2017…

Okay, so I think those of you following this blog may have noticed that I have struggled a little in recent years to complete the challenge of cooking along with the 21 days of the world’s premier cycling road race. As some background for you, I started this blog a few years ago now in…

Beef Fillet with Périgord Sauce

According to Epicurean, this dish is a gastronomic delight.  Périgueux (Périgord) sauce is a famous symbol of Aquitaine gastronomy and, since it is made almost exclusively from truffles it is a very special dish that is not to be missed!  Enough said, I think!  C’mon over and cook it with me!

Just like Tony Martin on the time trial …

There will be a last minute flurry of posts for you tomorrow! A little medical emergency interrupted the cooking yesterday and although we are back on track today, I’m a little behind on the write ups!  Join me tomorrow for Roast Beef with a White Wine and Truffle sauce, a lovely Walnut Tart, and French…

Okay, time to strap in!

Where did the last month go?  We’ve had the World Cup, Wimbledon and suddenly it seems we find ourselves on the eve of the Great Race.  It seems that for some, too much sport is never enough!  Oh well, at least I can cook my way through this one!  Are you prepared to embark on…

One month to go…

And the ‘Dish a Day’ Challenge draws to a close…

Well, the final two dishes are posted for this years Taste le Tour ‘Dish a Day’  Challenge.  Thank you for sharing the journey with me, it’s been loads of fun! I’ll be doing a round up of recipes later this week once I had the chance to recover from 21 days straight of late night…

The end is nigh…

Well my fellow foodies and (armchair) cyclists, the juggernaut that is the Tour de France winds its way to a close this evening (actually it will be very early tomorrow morning Australian time).  And with the end of the Tour comes the end of Gabriel Gaté’s Taste le Tour for 2013.  However, all is not…

It’s days like these…

… that I really love food!  As we near the end of Gabriel Gaté’s Taste le Tour for 2013, and the riders of the Tour de France prepare to power (or limp) their way onto the Champs-Élysée, Gabriel shares with us a recipe that encapsulates all we know and love about French food. The recipe…
