Recipe #20 – Paste en pot
This is an odd dish. It is a paté made from the meat of your choice, spices and bread. The texture is not what we recognize as a modern paté. The meat in the dish is chopped instead of being ground and it gives the dish a less than smooth feel. That all being said…
Recipe #16 – Brouet Vergay
Brouet Vergay is aptly titled. The translation is “Gaudy-Green Broth”. It is a brightly colored sauce for the meat of our choosing. The sauce gets it’s color from it’s main ingredient, parsley, as well as egg yolks and saffron.
Recipe #15 – Soupe crottee
Soupe crotte…. worst name ever! It doesn’t sound so bad until you translate it… Dung soup. Terence Scully is kind and calls it Lumpy Sops. Either way the name is unfortunate but the dish was surprisingly taste and very filling. Don’t let the name or the look of the dish fool you, it is “lumpy”…
Recipe #11 – Soupe de quaresme
Soupe de quaresme or Lenten Sops is a dish that resembles a pea soup served over toast. Flavored with cumin, wine and saffron it is a nice savory warming dish.
