Santé

Last Wednesday the Craft and Social Club in Daglan become the ladies who lunch, at La Cantine in Daglan. Which is situated on the left of the Marie and village school.

You simply cannot beat good food, wine and excellent company on a gorgeous Summers day.

Everyone chose from the set menu above. I had a bean salad, followed by Salmon and a very tasty tarte tatin with coffee.

Bon été Ladies

A gorgeous lunch with great company.

Santé everyone.

Artistic Rabbit!

Yesterday was our Le Club de I’Amitie Daglanise (Friendship Club) Annual General Meeting which was followed by a delicious meal prepared by Fabrice Le Chef.

Lovely photograph of Jan and Loren.
 

The service was excellent.

The first course was potage de saison, I was so engrossed in conversation that I forgot to take a photo.
 

Caviar d’aubergines, houmous, olives, salad de jeunes pousses et chiffonnade de jambon de pays. The vegetarian option was the same but without the jambon. With lots of Rose Red or White wine.
 

My vegetarian main meal risotto with salad.
 

The meat main meal was, tourtiere forestiere de sanglier et ses petits legumes. Paul assures me it was delicious.

Followed by fromage with salad.

Last was coffee, delicious.

It was great catching up and enjoying a meal together we had a great time.

The next club meal will be on the first Sunday in May, a traditional English Meal. Looking forward to helping to organise the menu, meal etc.

What a Wonderful Surprise!

Maison Massoulier, Master Chocolater and Patisserie presented Paul and I with a surprise box of their gorgeous chocolates while we were having breakfast there last Thursday morning. The present was for featuring their shop and most importantly showing their large selection of delicious chocolates, patisserie, gateaus, etc. in our blog.

This very yummy shop can be found at 33 Rue de la République in Sarlat.

Thank you so much.
 

Look away now if you are on a diet.

This was our breakfast treat. Paul adores his pain au raisin with a café noisette, my croissant almond and café crème was equally delighfull.
 

My goodness, so delicious. Being a chocolate person the gateau at the front centre would be my choice.
 

Here are some of the new creations of petite gateau which were displayed in the window.

Again thank you so much, the chocolates are delicious.
 
 

Event- Sarlat Organic Night Market from five o’clock this Thursday 8th February.
 
 

Master Crêpe Maker

A special treat awaited customers to the 8 a Huit Supermarket in Daglan this morning. Showing her culinary skills was chef extraordinaire Virginie, her expertise in the art of crêpe making is excellent. With a flick of the wrist the crêpe was turned over, jam or Nutella spread in the centre, the crêpe was folded into a triangle and voilà, a delicacy ready to eat.

Superb.
 

Here is my very yummy Nutella crêpe.

Très bon Virginie,un vrai régal, merci beaucoup.

Everything Truffle.

I wish that I could have a fragrance blog and then you would be able to experience the gorgeous aroma of the Truffle Festival as we walked from stall to stall in Sarlat last weekend. For anyone who has not had the experience it is a heady, earthy, dusty strong smell that permeates your scenes and it is so delicious.

Truffle sellers proudly sell their wears to the buyers. You not only buy a truffle but you get their history too.
 

From €800 to €950 per kilo depending on quality the truffles were selling at anything from ten to five hundred euros each.
 

There were stalls selling a wide variety of foods and snacks made with truffle such as pate, sausages, gourmand cakes, chocolate, macarons, desserts, cheeses, wine and oil. They also had related items such as books on how to find truffles or you could even buy your own oak tree.
 

I can not describe how delicious truffle macarons are, just amazing will have to do. Plus we have a truffle which is slightly bigger than last year, it is dessert spoon size. It is at this moment sitting in a dish of eggs in our pantry so that the taste permeates the egg shells for a delicious omelette which may be served with thinly sliced truffle on top. The truffle will then be placed into a jar of rice for a few days for truffle flavoured risotto or paella. Then the truffle will be cooked with a chicken at the weekend, or sliced on top of tagliatelle in a cream sauce. Superb.
