Adam made me a delicious breakfast! He sauteed onions, garlic, mushroom, bell peppers, chorizo and then topped it all with a fried egg! So yummy! Well done my love 🙂
On our way to Annecy, we noticed this cute restaurant that was totally full – always a good sign. We both had the menu of the day. We started with the charcuterie plate- delish! Adam had the beef dish, not sure what cut it was, with a delicious country wine gravy and potatoes. I had some kind of white fish with an herb cream sauce and peas with onions and bacon. All was very simple and good. We then had dessert. Adam had the fromage blanc and I had a chocolate brownie-type cake – both nothing special. Of course we completed the meal with espresso 🙂
Apparently we hit the end of the lunch rush, because the place cleared out very quickly after we arrived (maybe we smell bad?). French restaurants are very strange. They are open from 12 until 2:30 then 7 until 10:30. Don’t you dare try to eat at 3pm or 6pm! 😉
Thanks to our lovely friend Elodie, we already knew about a regional speciality called Raclette. She recently hosted a lovely Raclette dinner- we were hooked. It wasn’t until a few weeks before we left for Europe that we learned that Raclette is a very popular regional dish here in Savoie! Lucky!
I started the meal with a generous glass of Bonal, of course. I made fresh green salads with a sharp mustard and red wine vinaigrette- just the way we like it. We also had skewers of onion, mushrooms, and zucchini, crusty French bread rubbed with garlic, and boiled baby potatoes. All covered in hot, bubbling slices of Raclette. Wow! I’m so glad Elodie taught us all about this fun and delicious French tradition!
This was the best meal at the college so far! The pork and apple pie was so good, I ate an extra portion. It had big juicy chunks of pork in a lovely savory sauce. There were mushrooms, onions, and slices of apple in with the pork, all under a crispy, flaky, perfect philo dough. The potatoes and corn were nothing special, but the salad was very bland. The dessert was awesome though, cream puffs floating in a dark chocolate bath! I wish they made this for me every night!
Lamb doner kebab with raw onion, cabbage, and chili sauce, all in a warm pita. I ate this one out of my lap on a bench in a tiny square. The lamb doner was balanced nicely with the freshness of the raw veg, and the spicyness of the chili sauce. For only £3, it was a pretty decent take away meal.
