Déjeuner de poissons et douceurs


Lunch at Le Grand Couvert. Perfectly cooked salmon and seabass, an assortment of puds to die for: chocolate profiterole with real melted chocolate, not some thing out of a tube, pain perdu made with brioche (Wikipedia says French toast is a traditional Christmas dish, that's a first for me, my gran did it all year round...) and tarte tatin revisited.

Déjeuner au Grand Couvert : saumon et bar parfaits, puis un petit assortiment avec une "brioche perdue", une profiterole et une tarte tatin revisitée. Délicieux.

I'm glad I had a lovely brunch today (including French toast) or this would be making me very hungry! Delectable photos!

My mother did "French toast" all year round also, as I have for 47 years. Never knew it was a traditional Christmas dish...hmmmmmm! The lunch looks absolutely wonderful! Salmon is one of my favorite foods.

My mouth is watering like mad. The photos are delicious and your descriptions equally so.

You mean eggy bread? I heard someone use this expression during the endless hours of television coverage from the royal wedding.

This looks scrumptious in so many ways.

Everyone knows the good chocolate doesn't come from a tube, it comes from a small town about 90 minutes west of me, Hershey ;-) ;-)

Ciel, this looks scrumptious!!! That is a word you can use year-round.

Oh, puds, I get it, as is puddings. Americans would think of it as in spuds, i.e., potatoes. I've never had French toast in France but I've had some lovely Sunday lunches.

le repas est plus vite avalé avec un grand couvert ? je sais mais je peux pas m'en empêcher

je prends le plat de poissons je te laisse le dessert

Cergie said...

En général je prends toujours du poisson au restaurant quoique avec le bar ou la daurade ou le sandre d'élevege, bof... Rien ne vaut finalement le barbecue familial avec le maquereau ou la sardine non vidés achetés à la descente du bateau.

I like almost everything in France, but my ideal breakfast is a German one!

French desserts - yum! I'd be happy to have a 3 course meal just made up of desserts!

My grandmother was French from Prince Edward Island, Canada. We always had Pork Pie on Christmas morning. Ha!

Thérèse said...

Cela donne bien sur envie, surtout avec la musique d'accompagnement cela fait grandiose.

Dina said...

Oh yum. French toast is my Shabbat morning treat.
