Once upon a time, we’d serve the
crudités on a large plate, even with the sauce mixed in with each type of vegetable. For guests, Granny would display them on huge (imitation) silver trays.
That looked like that.
Grated carrot, sliced Japanese turnip, sliced new onion, greens, edamame (they have to be boiled).
Then this became popular to make sushi… So why not rolling in the veggies ?
(Do you notice something weird on the photo ? You should… I had a problem after the shooting session. LOL)
And serving the dressing (soy sauce, black rice vinegar and chili pepper) as a dip.

Spring is a bit this year. Let’s enjoy baked fish.
Okinawan yellow skin potatoes. New.
A bed of baked potatoes with a fragrance of white wine.
Tarragon brings an interesting flavor.

baba is very Japanese. The biscuit is soaked in matcha green tea, and it is topped with an anko sweet bean paste.
I had a few mini-savarin left, getting stale ( see recipe here).
I soaked the babas in thick sweetened
matcha (green tea for ceremony). Let overnight.
I had no azuki beans in stock, so I’ve used other red beans (
taisho kintoki beans), sweetened with vanilla sugar.
That’s it. I’ve sprinkled a little more
matcha and sugar on top.
baba was fully soaked, but weirdly the color didn’t pass everywhere.

matelotte is a French river fish stew, with a creamy wine sauce. It’s out of fashion now, which is a shame. It’s really delicious. Well you need good river fish. When I was a kid, we often had neighbors that were emptying their fish pond, and we had some more often that we wished. Now it’s a rarity.
Ayu is a type of small river trout. They are farmed, at least partially. It’s rarely if ever prepared this way.
Japanese ayu dish
I got a few that were a bit too large for Japanese style, but perfect for my purpose.
Garniture aromatique. Fresh veggies and herbs in butter. The sauce is based on white wine.
With lots of mushrooms.
You can have reasonably healthy side dishes. Pink sauerkraut.
Salade trévise (radicchio).
A good Sunday meal.
Gâteau au chocolat de Nancy
Nancy, the city.
Lorraine has two capital cities. The real one and the fake one that pretends. Well, I know which is real but that’s not the topic.
The situation has advantages. The region has two iconic traditional chocolate cakes. One for Metz, one for Nancy.
