Salut, salut

By the time this article will be published, I’ll still be in bed. It’s my day off today and running is not on my planning either. How are you? :) Apart from that, do you know what is missing here, on the other side of the Chanel? Some French recipes: blanquette de veau (veal blanquette), magret (fillet of duck breast), piperade, raclette for example. La raclette. Before our departure, our dear friends agreed to eat one under 35° degrees and here even with -5° we don’t have the chance to eat one and we miss that, a lot! Internet is a wonderful thing and you can find French food quite easily, I found raclette cheese on a website and ordered it (yay!) but we don’t have the machine here so we had to find another way to eat this raclette. Here are the jackets raclette.

_dsc3558Serve 4: 8 potatoes, 1 onion, 200g diced streaky bacon, raclette cheese

Prep: 5mn — Cooking: 1h20

Heat oven to 220°. Clean your potatoes and put them in a plate, rub a little oil over each potato and put on the top shelf of the oven. Bake for 20mn, turn down the oven to 180° and bake for 40mn (or 1h) until the skin is crisp and the flesh soft.

While your potatoes are baking, chop the onion and put it in a pan with an oil trickle. When it’s soft, add the diced streaky bacon, let it cook. Keep it.

When the potatoes are baked: cut a cross on top of the potatoes, squeeze the sides. Put the onion + bacon on it, the cheese and bake for a couple of minutes, just enough for the cheese to melt.

So, what do you think about that? It’s really nice to eat that melted cheese and I advise everyone to try! Even if you’re French, try without the machine, it is really nice :)

Have a lovely day, des bisous.
