It’s struck me as I have worked my way through my books that I should really sit down and read a few of them and not just use them at meal times. Some of them really do have a lot of good information in them and it also helps when they are well written – Nigel Slater’s books spring to mind. One such book that has been hiding on my shelves is Richard Olney’s Simple French Food, a book I bought on a bit of a whim and haven’t used, that I can remember.
The dish I chose was rustic and simple befitting the book’s title. It was a Breton Chowder which is basically onions, potatoes and fish, made into a broth, seasoned and served on top of broth soaked slices of bread – very simple.
Simple recipe, simple food, simple post.
On another note, I went to Casa Iberica on the weekend and came back with some fun things including a tortilla press. Now, when will I get to use it.
