This week’s menu: recipe ideas from Monday 2nd to Sunday 8th January

We enjoy ourselves, even after the holidays

It is not about eating only broth and herbal tea in the first week of January. Sure, Christmas and New Years have passed, but it’s a bad idea to go on a strict diet for days and weeks to make up for the excesses. Instead, it is better to simply return to a balanced and varied diet. For this we focus on fruit, vegetables, but also cheese, chocolate, gratins… All in reasonable quantities, of course. Remember that the most important thing is to have fun.

I love the cakeā€¦

The celebration of the end of the year is barely over when it is already Epiphany! Are you more of a team galette or brioche des rois? When we couldn’t choose, we planned an almond cream galette on Friday, the official Epiphany Day, and a brioche from Christophe Felder on Sunday to enjoy with family or friends. If this is your first time making a king cake, don’t hesitate to check out our tutorials for galette des rois with almond cream by Cyril Lignac and step-by-step brioche Kings.

MY SHOPPING LIST FOR THE WEEK

Grab your pens, write it down! We have delivered a basket with various fruits and vegetables. Butternut squash, carrots, leeks, mushrooms, chard, potatoes, onions, cauliflower, fennel, sweet potatoes, lettuce and fresh herbs, spinach, oranges, pineapples, mangoes, apples… Even heirlooms like Jerusalem artichokes and parsnips will be on the menu.
As usual, we continue with meat and fish. This week, you only need a roast pork, a whole free-range chicken, salmon fillets and canned fish (grab a can of chickpeas while you’re in the canned food section).
In terms of fresh products, use butter, yogurt, fresh cream, Beaufort cheese, fresh cheese, parmesan, ricotta and mozzarella. Remember to also buy puff pastry for the galette des rois.
In addition, you will be doing a lot of baking this week. It will therefore be necessary to supply your cupboards with flour, eggs and sugar.
Finish your shopping by buying almonds, slabs of bricks and country bread.

Good week !
