There’s a new gourmet food subscription that delivers French food products straight to your mailbox. October was the first month, and it seems that the boxes kept them a little busy! I received a complimentary box this month to review, and my honest opinion? I love it. Here’s how the process went for me.
It wasn’t long ago that I first learned that graham crackers are not available in the UK. ”What do you mean?!?” I sputtered. But sure enough, I can’t find them any where. And when someone tells me that I can’t have it, well, it makes me want it all the more.
1. We had mac and cheese four times this week. Four slightly different recipes, each with tweaks and such, so I could pin down a healthy, cheesy, and tasty recipe for you. All skinny, and all with kale and mushrooms. That means, between me and Jonathan, we consumed about 10 cups of (mostly) low-fat cheese, 16 cups of kale, and lots of mushrooms.
The fig in the center of the picture above came from a regular customer of the coffee stall. It was grown in his own garden plot, just around the corner from the market. How lovely of him to bring by a fresh ripe fig! I wanted to enjoy it in a simple fashion, but to also bring out its flavor. Hence, I just topped it with a bit of crème fraîche, and paired it with a nice cut of prosciutto.
