To illustrate how exciting Winter in Provence @womensinstitute @denmancollege can be I took the Adventures with ingredients idea from my @bloomsburycooks Cookbook for Everybody everyday and started with a blank chicken breast. Then I used lots of citrus, @merchantgourmet dried porcini and tomatoes, pistou, chestnuts, pickled lemons, dried fruit and and spices to make 4 very different dishes. The activity, presentation and tastes were invigorating. The sun shone through the flavours in spite of the season. I'll be teaching Ultimate Home Cooking @divertimenti next week using the same philsophy, giving the students tools to eat well everyday, in season or out for whatever mood u are in.
