French Yabby and Olive Apéro

Yabbies grow well in the Alps regions of France where there are many streams and lakes in which they grow.  In France, yabbies are a true delicacy and can be found on menus at most restaurants.  

Here we have another tasty way of having yabbies as an appetiser.

Provencal Baby Potatoes with Fennel

This is a versatile side dish to be served with any kind of meat or fish. The French utilize the fennel flavour in a number of their soups, salads, vegetables and many of their classic dishes.

Provencal Olive, Cheese and Tomato Loaf

In France, the pain aux olives is a very popular savoury loaf which, cut into cubes or thin fingers, is served with drinks.

It’s a savoury loaf, packed with flavours of cheese, bacon, olives and sundried tomatoes. This is also a convenient snack to have as a light lunch with a tossed green salad.

To make a vegetarian version, just leave out the bacon and ham.

Roasted Peaches with Salted Caramel Mousse

Here we have a contemporary French dessert which looks elegant when presented and served in individual glasses. Peaches are the seventh most popular fruit to be consumed in France. The French use many different ways to prepare their peaches; and of all those which I have tried making, I haven’t been disappointed, they have been delicious.

Yabby Apéritif

Yabbies are a much cherished delicacy in France, particularly in the Alps region where there are many lakes and streams where yabbies are in abundance.

This way of preparing and presenting yabbies doesn’t take long to put together, yet looks very impressive. The combination of the herbs fried in oil are absolutely delicious.

Potato Parcels

Small parcels of baby potatoes are a great side dish with any meal, but can adorn the table at a simple barbeque, and give a rustic feel to the whole meal time experience.
