This post is technically not on time. This week, we had special friends here from Paris and I was inspired with food local to our department of Dordogne. There were leftovers, so here's some for you...
|Saucisson de canard - Start with dried duck sausage!|
|Rilettes/paté de canard - Little pieces of duck meat and fat in a paté are perfect for a picnic.|
|Fromage de chevre du Pizou - Goat cheese from a nearby farm - so creamy!|
|Cepes mushrooms must be hunted in the forest. We put some steaks on the barbecue, then sautéed these beauties with garlic and parsley, to a side of red peppers and steamed green beans.|
|Roasted chickens at the Wednesday market make for a beautiful simple meal...secret of French cooking? Butter. And butter. And quality products. With butter.|
|Of course, a Bordeaux from the Bergerac region is a must. I tasted this 2009 at the market from the owner. I went back and got a rosé/pink wine too!|
