Spot the Michelin Guide

clematis

With the falling dollar and the rise of food and petrol prices, the Michelin Guide to France had been relegated to a resting place on the window sill. Meanwhile, we are beginning to experience the pleasures of making do with the six mange-touts and one courgette that grew to maturity that day. Plus the odd glass of Chateauneuf, of course. If this is the way the world is going, perhaps it's not such a bad thing?

What is a mange-tout? Eggplant is my favorite vergetable, were you going to bake those with the tomatoes? Looks wonderful. I won't have my own in the garden until August. But tomatoes soon.

zuleme mange tout literally means 'eat all' - i think you might call them snow peas. the eggplant (aubergine!) recipe is indeed baked. it is from richard olney's simple french food. a recent gift and an absolute must for any food lover.

hi mireille! j'imagine que toi aussi tu as une bonne cure qui pousse dans ton jardin!
