The food diaries: part 4 - France

With one thing and another, I've just realised that it's been a month since the last food diary. This time we're going back to France and enjoying some typically French dishes, as well as some north African ones that are widely available. Go on, feast your eyes!

You can't go wrong with onion soup. Mmmmm.


Ham, cheese and mushroom crepe. I asked for one without egg, but they didn't take much notice. Oh well. At least I'm not allergic to them...


A steaming Moroccan tajine. This was my first ever tajine and all I can say is, now I understand what all the fuss is about!!


Couscous expertly prepared by the restaurant owner.





The meat dish that came with the couscous.


Blogging makes me sooooo hungry. I'm off to make a ham, cheese and tomato sandwich. Not as fancy as couscous or tajine (or even onion soup) but our weekly shop hasn't arrived yet and there's not much else in the fridge.

Everything looks great. I think I ate more "French onion soup" in the USA than I do in France, though. Strange.

@ Nes: Μα καλά, όλα τα έχει κόψει πια;;; Μήπως να άλλαζες γιατρό;

@ Betty: Not strange at all. I'm guessing it's like "Greek" moussaka - it's so popular here, but not common at all in Greece.

Hi Tinsie! Here I am to enjoy your lovely blog on my weekly visit! But it seems everybody is planning to ruin my diet... ;))
WOW! Tagine, with merguez (and you surely had the Harissa)... I've to start thinking that autumn is here and it's time for me to cook it again...
Look forward to reading you at Blogtrotter. Next post still in Crete!
Have a great week!

It all looks so wonderful! The French sure know what to do with food. I'm craving a crusty piece of that baguette with a glob of real butter.

Tinsie said...

@ Cook: The onion soup? Is it quite cold in Greece at the moment?

@ GMG: We had everything - and utterly delish it was too!

@ Karen: Mmmmm and a pain au chocolat for me please :-)
