A Good Day!
Breakfast: Pancakes with blueberry compoteI really have no idea what a "compote" is, but it definitely sounds better than just a "sauce". I think this is a pretty standard pancake recipe. Not quite as "standard" as the pre-made mix, but with only 3 ingredients, I'm not sure why you'd need anything "pre-made" anyways! This is always a great breakfast because it's impressive, tasty, and also fast and easy. All good!
Lunch: Crustless Quiche SavoyardeSince we’re living in the Haute-Savoie region in France, I try and re-create or improvise on some of the classic regional dishes and ingredients. The traditional foods are really hearty basic staples: Sausage, cheese and potatoes. Stuff you needed to keep you warm during the winter! The good news is that these ingredients are often now used in some pretty interesting ways in amazing restaurants throughout the region. I typically do a crustless quiche, because “crust” implies baking, and I'm really not into that for a simple lunch.
Amuse Bouche: Cucumber Mint PureeI know I saw this recipe somewhere, but no idea from where, and not really sure I'm following it correctly anyways! In any event, super simple, tasty and always nice to start a summer meal with a bright, light, fresh, cold amuse bouche.
Dinner: Strawberry Tomato SaladI think I saw a variation of this on a French cooking show. One of the things I love about France is that it seems half of the afternoon and evening TV programming is cooking shows! And that's on the main national channels! In any event, a really light, summery salad, with a great balance of flavours. Perfect accompaniment to a grilled main course. And because of the ingredients, you can play with the presentation (like the layering effect in the picture).
Dinner: Grilled Maple Syrup SalmonMarinating salmon before grilling isn't exactly new, nor is using maple syrup in Canada, so there are probably hundreds of variations of this recipe out there. This is what works for me!
Dessert: Grilled Pineapple and NectarinesAfter we had been in France for about a year, we moved to a place with a nice garden and lots of room for a BBQ. I hadn't grilled on a BBQ for about 5 years, so I started basically trying to do everything on the grill. This was the first dessert I tried. So, so good!
