We have made a lot of wonderful friends since moving to Provence, none more so then the owners of Chateau Unang who are the embodiment of friends with benefits. Anyone for a drink? or nine?Yesterday was the Fete de la Lumiere, a celebration held 40 days after Christmas more excitingly known as the jour des crepes. I can’t remember the last time I had a crepe, whenever it was I’m pretty sure it was no where near as satisfying as the ones I had last night – thick with ham and cheese. Traditionally Fete de la Lumiere crepes as accompanied by cider. Last night however I had Champommy! A very naff, incredibly popular non-alcoholic fizzy apple juice for children that comes in a Champagne bottle, cork and all. Its lovely to see that children all over the world like flipping pancakes. Today we have a pudding adverse friend coming for lunch so I’ve made a fruit course that will hopefully satisfy our sweet tooth too and his lack of one.
Peel 4 large oranges and slice thickly. When arranging on a plate sprinkle each layer with a little demerara sugar and freshly grated cinnamon. If you prefer something with a little more kick you can use chilli flakes instead.
