Another long gourmand weekend

29 Oct

Hola! It’s another long weekend for les français. And everyone knows that when there’s a holiday it’s a must for Parisians to go away for the weekend.

And so go away we will.

Tonight, we are driving down to Dordogne to spend the weekend at A’s house with some friends from Toulouse. We love going down there because of the Fab food and the Fab company.Yes, with a capital F.

A’s mom makes the most awesome foie gras and pate with truffles. The last time we went there, she taught me how to make some. Love!! We left the pate there because like wine, it has to “age” for at least a year to let the flavors mix and melt into one another. I’m hoping I can bring some home this time around, even though it has only been 6 months. Promise I won’t eat them until Christmas.

classic foie gras. 500 g of yummy sinful grease and fat

This trip though will not be for the foie gras (although I hope we will have some anyway) but for the chestnuts and probably mushrooms. We will bring our hiking gear with us so we can go into the forest and forage for porcini mushrooms. Yum! If it’s too rainy to go out, we can always sit by the fireplace and roast chestnut on the fire. Double yum!

Okay I have to stop this post or I’ll end up drooling over the possibilities of food this weekend.

Oh did I tell you that we’ll have raclette too? Triple yum!!

Hello again winter fat!
