Pablo’s menu this week (17 months)

Here’s Pablo’s (and our) weekly menu, and a few images of produce that inspired us this past week.

Welcoming fall, and seasonal ingredients. What are you cooking this week?

Cheeses of the week: Following French tradition, I always offer a little bit of cheese at the end of every meal, between the main course and dessert. Rotation this week: Truffle triple cream, Danish Blue, Goat brie (and Babybel when we eat on the road)

Desserts: At lunch, I offer a fruit yogurt (or plain yogurt with fresh fruit), but at night, I prefer sticking to plain yogurt (regular homemade* whole milk, sheep’s milk, goat’s milk and Greek yogurt for extra protein) to avoid too much sugar before bedtime.

If you would like a particular recipe on the menu, feel free to contact me! (I marked with a * the recipes that will be the topic of upcoming posts).
