I kept the Marie Claire Idees magazine which Liz brought me from France, to read over the weekend.
This evening, Adrian, Marion and Lucy are coming for a meal. Bob’s in charge of that – it will be steak and pommes frites, with corn on the cob and salads – followed by baklava, greek yogurt with honey, and a bowl of strawberries and plums.
I copied the salad idea “bouquets de saveurs” from p88 of the magazine. It suggests presenting ‘posies’ in individual cups. Magazine picture
…I have put them together on a large Pyrex flan dish for effect
We have cheated a bit with the baklava dessert – we brought that with us from a shop in Leicester – it comes presented on its own platter!
Here they come, ready to eat!
