As inspiration/an excuse to make and eat tasty treats, we occasionally use national celebrations and on 14th July it was La Fête Nationale/Bastille Day (click here for information). Jo is slightly in love with all things French and so was more than happy to use Bastille Day as a platform to make some tasty french treats.
|We started the day with the classic croissant and jam|
While Jo planned the cooking, I strolled down to the local farmers market and returned with a bulb of smoked garlic. I also went foraging for the first time and collected lots of rasberries from bushes that I ran past by chance earlier in the week in the local park.

Whilst I relaxed with the Open, Jo got busy in the kitchen and produced a 3 course french bistro menu.
