Bye,bye Turkey. Bonjour France!

2 Sep

The end of August was celebrated by a trip to our local Turkish restaurant the Grille. We feasted on home baked sesame bread, starters of Borek (pastry stuffed with feta) and a ezma a spicy fresh veg mix. Mr M had an Iskender kebab, pitta, lamb chunks, tomato sauce and yogurt. I went for a traditional lamb Shish kebab. A great end to a good month.

Our month of French food began with a lazy tea of frittes and ouef and bacon. Proper service resumed today.

Succulent duck breast, pan fried to crisp up the skin and then oven cooked and rested before serving. Accompanied with peppery puy lentils and a tart plum sauce made with our own plums. A good start Mr M gave it 8.5.
