The room in which 'le déjeuner' (lunch) was served, was beautifully rich in color, and toasty warm from the fire...
We were served one plate after the other,with wine to match of course. This being the first time my friend and I had experienced such a meal, we were wondering how we could keep going, but we managed beautifuly!
I remember clearly how delicious it all was , the amazing french wines , plus the fact that we cancelled our dinner reservation! It cost a fortune, but to be honest there wasn't a lot more to do in this little village but to eat and drink.....a perfect place to spend a honeymoon perhaps?? :)
Anyway....I got off the track of what I was going to talk about...oh yes..tastings! I thought I would share with you a VERY easy french starter to an all afternoon lunch...
This is a handmade journal I purchased, and whenever I try out a new french dish that works..it goes in here... hard for this dish NOT to work!
This is the recipe I am sharing today :)... its so so simple, it's almost embarrassing! But tastes fresh and delicious, with provencal flavors. Ready????
|place ripe tomatos on a platter|
|Add red onion rings|
|Add crumbled fetta|
|Season and add the chopped basil.|
|Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar....and ENJOY !|
Not exactly french restaurant standard, but it is mine!!
A bientôt, Gigi. :)
