Foodie Haul from France
We didn’t have much space in our cases to bring back many foodie items, next time I’m taking a bigger case! However here are the things I managed to squeeze in and fortunately not a single glass bottle or jar was broken in transit.
The two tins on the left contain Herbes de Provence and Sel de Camargue aux 3 poivres (salt from the Camargue region with three kinds of pepper). I love the tins as well as their contents. Next is the Truffle Oil Spray not quite sure how I’m going to use this yet, any suggestions very welcome.
The two small bottles are miniatures of Poire William Eau de Vie (alcohol flavoured with pear) and a Chestnut liqueur, the large bottle is Framboise (Raspberry) liqueur which is divine and really tastes of fresh raspberries. It makes a great Raspberry Kir when served with chilled dry white wine.
There is a jar of Dijon Mustard bought in the cheese shop in Beaune which I showed you in the last photos, and there is a bag of culinary lavender which I’m looking forward to using.
In front of the bottles is some nougat and a bag of Praline de Lyon which is an almond praline made with coloured sugar, I’m hoping to use that to recreate some of the baking decorated with the praline that I saw in the markets and patisseries in Lyon.
Last but not least, I bought a lovely provencal style tablecloth which will be featuring in my photographs for some time before we actually get to use it on the table!
