I invite you from the start to set the scene

It's cold or raining, night has fallen and you're back in your cozy nest, after a particularly intense day.

Do not want to cook, just feel like dressing comfortably, put good music, a subdued atmosphere and drop on the sofa with a tray.

You are in the right place so the setting is not just an illusion!

The recipe to season your desire and your tray is in preparation mode.....

The recipe that I propose is about green, earth colour and pleasure.

Green is both about mental and physical cleansing, but also vitality and communication that tonight will be complete and zen. It also refers to Nature, to the forest. A subtle reminder of the ingredients on your plate.

wild mushrooms

Earthy colours bring back anchorage, which is the basis for balance. Return to our point of stability, deeply anchored in the ground. Feet in the soil, where we find at ground level, the food of the forest but also ours with many varieties of mushrooms. This wonderful fructification, which allows to feed both the micro and the macrocosm. The touch of yellow is delicately added to fuel the joy and highlight the exquisite dishes that are offered to us.

Here is my recipe, simple, fully healthy and full of flavours.

I named it: The Monk’s Sandwich

This frugal but nutritious meal will make you think of this exquisite Monk's Mustard. And you will remember this rustic and easy dish, in your daily culinary life, as a ritual, as a bubble to enjoy the moment away from the world or by sharing it with your tribe.
