Itâs going to be a short, sweet French Fridays with Dorie post this week. Iâm actually on vacation (well, trying to be, seems thereâs always something, always an email to answer that canât waitâ¦.) in the south of France with Neil and a couple of friends so I was extremely pleased to see that this weekâs recipe was another ânon-recipeâ (tzatziki, p 24).
Perfect for whipping up after a day in the Camargue visiting the salt marshes.Â Itâs hot here so an apÃ©ro featuring Tavel rosÃ©, âChips au Roquefortâ (yes, really and yes, they are as good as you think they would be) and this tzatziki hit the spot on our little rooftop terrace as we sat and listened to the cicadas singing. Lifeâs pretty good, yes.
Of course, scrambling for these ingredients at the last minute meant that I couldnât get my hands on fresh dill but fortunately our rental house is well stocked and I discovered dried dill in the pantry. I mixed it with a little olive oil and drizzled it on top of the tzatziki just before serving. It wasnât as good as fresh dill but it did the trick!
Cheers! I canât wait til next week when duck is on the menu â now THAT should be quite the adventure. Mr Neil is also looking forward to it, being the only duck lover in the house right now (I will eat it but itâs not my favourite meat, though I am learning to cook it pretty well).
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs (though this week, you can find the recipe online here), we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself then join us here!
