Delicious Tastes

Together with 6 other colleagues I spent my evening tasting the flavours of the Provence tonight.

loucigalouWhat did we have? (a selection)
– Red/White/Rosé wine: Coteaux d’Aix en Provence
– Rillets de Thon
– Terrine de Chevreuil aux Champignons
– Tapenades d’Olives Noires aux Tomates Séchées
– Sardines à la Tomate et aux Herbes de Provence

The evening ended with a great comparison between two distinct ways of preparing aïoli. Either add garlic to plain mayonaise (which is what the dutch think aïoli is), or crush a clove of garlic, add 1 egg yoke and olive oil (perhaps some salt too). Mix well and enjoy!
