Last winter I was fortunate enough to be in Alsace just a week before Christmas, researching for my latest book My Little French Kitchen, and I was completely blown away by the picturesque scenes that lay before me.
When I visited Alsace just before Christmas, a veil of fresh snow dusted the countryside, perfect for getting that festive feeling going. These little coconut snowballs lie somewhere between a macaroon and a meringue; snow-white and puffy, like perfect little boules de neige.
Asperges blanches habillées – White asparagus in blankets When I visit producers I always like to find out how they like to eat what they produce. Usually it’s the simplest way of cooking: a quick blanch, a lick of flame on the barbecue or a speedy steam.
Here at La Redoute we are lucky enough to be able to share some recipes from Rachel Khoo’s new book ‘My Little French Kitchen.’
