  13. Sixte, I bought some lamb. Any suggestions what to do with it, please? "Not so sure" Pam

    1. Hello Not so sure Pam! What about a lovely Tajine? It is a kind of oriental stew. You can accommodate it with prunes, dates and honey or almond ? Or cook your lamb simply and serve it with a figs jam or an apricot chutney ? A little bit more sophisticated if you rub it in ground pistachio and served it accompanied by a leek or spinach flan ? Lamb when not silenced, love to be with any sugary "touch"... Hope it will help you Pam. Best, Sixte

    2. I will try my best. I will report to you afterwards whether my friends still talk to me. Thanks 100 times for your insight. Pam ( more confident now)

  14. Sixte, would these salads go with the ice-cream, please? Cheers, Pearl

    1. Hello Pearl, Of course. But which one ? I love salted ones. What about Parmesan or soft goat cheese ice-cream ? They go perfectly well with the strong sweet touch of the fruit salads.
      You can use as well a "trou Normand" (a palate cleanser in French): Go for a "Pastis-Ricard" granite or a Calvados Sorbet. (a Sauternes sorbet would add another sweet touch, but maybe you would like it...).
      In a classic way, I would recommend a rhubarb sorbet or a dark and lovely blueberry sorbet. Please let me know if you would like a particular recipe... Best, Sixte

    2. You are so sweet, Sixte. Thank you for the prompt reply. Could I (and others, of course) have a calvados sorbet "manual", please? Many thanks, Pearl

      Delete
    3. Hi Pearl. We would go for a granite then as a sorbet needs to churn.... For around 5 people : 30cl of calvados – 70g of brown caster sugar – 20cl of water – the juice of ½ a lemon.

      In a small saucepan, boil the sugar with the water.
      Leave it to cool then add the Calvados and the lemon juice.
      Place the mixture in a shallow container that can be put in the freezer.
      Freeze for at least 3 hours.
      Stir every 30 minutes with a fork.
      Serve in small shot glasses.
      Enjoy! Sixte
