Happy new year HOers!!! Happy new year WFDers!!! Glad to learn so much from all of you the last year(s)! Keep on cooking fabulous dishes!
The first day of 2018, we woke up in a storm with downpour of rain due to Ms. Carmen passing by (storm). Sun pops out in the early afternoon, good sign!!!
Last night, we had a quiet meal for the 2 of us.
l’Arpège Egg - Warm-cold soft boiled egg with chantilly (Xères vinegar, 4 spices, white pepper, salt), maple syrup, and some chopped chive (I didn’t notice that they all withered outdoor except one leaf, miracle!).
Cockles and clams steam cooked with grilled clementine and orange. The recipe asked for clementines, I had only tiny ones, so I grilled some oranges, clementines were much better with the additional acidity, oranges I used were a bit too sweet and bitter for this dish. A simple but very good recipe from Alexander Gauthier.
