Fresh Friday | 7 June

Dear Fresh Friday friends,

This week’s menu is focussed on a famous dish in France called “Choucroute”, after all it’s the King’s Birthday weekend so we should have something befitting a feast.

It’s a slow cooked winter meal based on a sumptuous selection of smoked pork loin, ribs, special sausages, pickled cabbage, spices including juniper and caraway, potatoes and vegetables. I am making a honey mustard sauce (not traditional) to accompany the Choucroute, along with a traditional French style mustard.

To follow, we have a beautiful sour cherry tart with lip smacking flavours and textures, a perfect way to finish.

So there you go, a wonderful winter feast to settle into on Friday or Saturday night.

Salut, Peter
