What is a Jersey Bean Crock? A Jersey Bean Crock or ‘les pais au fou’ is perhaps Jersey’s national dish. It is a tradition casserole of dried beans rather like a French Cassoulet. And don’t worry Guernsey readers I know that the Guernsey Bean Jar ( moussaettes au four ) is just as culturally important. The Bean Crock or Jar is cooked in a large clay casserole dish and historically was left in a baker’s oven overnight.
One of my great pleasures is wine and seafood so I thought I should post a favourite wine and food pairing for you to try.
How do you cook your Onions? If you are reading a post on a recipe blog, you probably enjoy cooking and read a lot of recipes. Question, on how many of these does it call for onions that are cooked without colouring? Or onions that are softened, or caramelised or browned,? And how often does the recipe give you a time?
What are Eggs Hemmingway? It is a little bit of an unfair question because you may know them as Eggs Montreal, eggs Norwegian, or by the very Quentin Tarantino-esque Eggs Royale. That is how I have always served them on menus, and they will make you an incredible Christmas Day breakfast. You will have most likely heard of Eggs Benedict well this dish, in my humble opinion, is a much nicer and definitely more extravagant dish.
