My today’s post is one of those “beige” foods I usually try to avoid! Despite the fact that I am a big fan of healthy eating and having lots of colourful veg on my plate – I still leave room to misbehave! It’s hard to watch the likes of Man Vs food and not secretly fancy tasting a meal or two from that show.

When I turned over the page of my kitchen calendar for August I immediately knew I must try this recipe! It uses herbs I have in my garden, especially basil, which I posted about here recently.

After tracking down some Ricotta (I live in an uncivilized part of the world where people don’t seem to stock it!), I was hoping to take a lovely photo of it in the Sunday summer sun… then we had a major storm and had to turn all the lights on mid-afternoon!

A good excuse to make it again very soon – just for the photo of course! ;-)

The French are obsessed with food – or so it seems.  Restaurants, recipes, dinner menus – all are frequent topics of conversation.  At this of year, the focus is on the most important feast of the year, the Réveillon or Christmas Eve dinner.

I moved to France eight years ago and have been invited to share this occasion at the home of French friends, and I’ve invited them for the meal at our home.  The name of this dinner comes from the word réveil (meaning “waking”) because participation involves staying awake until midnight and beyond. At friend Veronique’s one year, dinner was interrupted at…
