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…

Rolled Savoy Sponge with Blueberries

Oh dear!  I am dead on my feet tonight, but not to fear … only 3 more days of le Tour to go.  It has gone so fast…I am beginning to think about what comes next for the ‘Dish a Day’ challenge, but more on that later! For tonight we have a Rolled Savoy Sponge…

Winter warmer…Brittany Fish Stew

Check out this recipe from the Taste le Tour – Brittany Fish Stew.  Simple, flavourful and packed full of good stuff, this is food that is good for the soul.  It is really easy to make as well, so no excuses.  Get into the kitchen and give this one a go… ..and then come back…

Get your snail on…

Yep, you heard right.  Tonight it was snails.  With herb and walnut butter, no less.  I have cooked.  I have conquered.  But alas, I chickened out at the tasting.  Perhaps if I hadn’t also been the one who had to prepare them, I might have been game to give them ago… Many thanks to James…

Crunchy almond biscuits and and yummy idea…

So, this afternoon I made Gabriel Gaté’s biscuits (Crunchy Almond ones to be exact) and this evening I turned them into this fantastic dessert … Best thing that I have eaten on tour yet (sorry Gabriel!).  Read about it here.  This one will definitely be making a return appearance! And don’t forget, check back later…
