A Coffee Presentation.

In desperate need of a coffee fix whilst in Galeries Lafayette in Paris i visited the food hall and stopped at the tapas bar for a coffee. Please note the heart sugar. I was mystified by the slit in the heart but was soon made aware that this rested nicely on the edge of the cup!!!

It had to be done!

Chocolate Profiteroles with hot chocolate sauce.
Chez Georges.Paris.

Lamb and Haricots.

Not much to say about this sometimes it just about the simple things in life.
Chez Georges.

A simple lentil Salad

Lentil salad with a mustard dressing which i need to work out a way to get the recipe for.
How can lentils taste so delicious?
Chez Georges.Paris.


Mixed Mushrooms with shallots or should i say champignons sounds so much better.
Chez georges.

When In paris.

Why not visit Chez Georges? I have not been for approximately 15 years but for some reason it was much much better than i remembered and the waitresses and maitre d were positively charming. Only negative comment is tables too close together which is fine until you have a drunk couple sitting next to you who are talking at top volume. I really had to restrain myself. Is there such a thing as restaurant rage?

Red Onion Gravy.

Perfect with Sausages and Mash.
Cut the red onions in half then slice finely.
Cook in olive oil till they just start to turn a light brown.
Add some red wine,a little vegetable stock, balsamic vinegar and a spoonful of cranberry sauce if you have it.
Simmer until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
Put your sausages ontop of the mash and spoon over the sweet onions.
