January 07, 2015 – Macaro(o)n

The reason the title is macaro(o)n is because I don’t know what these are actually called. I’ve been under the impression that they are macaroOns, not the colourful, round macarons. However, the packaging says “macaroon” from Riquewihr so…enlighten me??? Maybe “macaron” is the French word for both macaron and macaroon? Maybe these are actually macarons and macaroons are just a figment of my imagination? Someone please get me out of this conundrum!

January 09, 2014 – Confit de canard

I went out for dinner with friends at a specific restaurant in Bordeaux just for its confit de canard (duck confit). It is truly a heavenly delight for the tongue and this restaurant might have just become one of my favourites in Bordeaux, solely because of its confit. The roasted potatoes were also excellently prepared and complements the confit quite well. Southwestern French cuisine is something I will definitely miss a lot!
