Serves 4 people

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 smoked sausages (not too big, if possible). If you can find a Morteau sausage, then buy for 1 for 2-3 people
  • 400g of podded green peas (fresh peas are a much, much better option than frozen)
  • Smoked pork chest, which you cut into big “lardons” bacon strings
  • 2 red onions
  • 2 carrots
  • 3-4 bay leaves
  • Garlic

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In your cast iron cocotte dish, brown the onions, the sausages, bacon and carrots until it has a nice smell and color.
  • Add the bay leaves, peas and about ½ liter of water, salt and pepper.
  • Let it cook on the stove half-covered for about 20-30 minutes (until the peas are cooked).

This is an excellent comforting meal!

Bon appétit!

We are preparing to do our second trip with Emilie to the Loire Valley, October 2018. Our first trip was to the region of Provence which was perfectly guided and gave us a most memorable experience.

Laura and Emilie started working with us to develop a trip in July of 2020, but the trip had to be postponed because of COVID. Nonetheless they kept everything in place and made some modifications so that the trip could take place this October and November.

My wife and I and two friends decided we would like to visit France and by chance I found Emilie's website and initiated an online conversation with her over a year ago. We really did not know what we wanted to do, nor where we wanted to go and so our planning became a moving feast, most ably supported by Emilie. How she ever put up with our …

We've just come back from an amazing holiday planned by Emilie. The detailed guide book and all the maps and brochures we received were way beyond our expectations. The information on local customs and language helped us immensely during our stay in France. Emilie was prompt and courteous answering our many questions while planning our custom tour …

Emilie is amazing. Going to Normandy has always been a dream of my husbands and luckily for us we found Emilie to plan our trip. Our hotel in Paris for the start of our trip was located perfectly. Within walking distance of so much for our first two days before we picked up the rental car she had arranged for us. Then onto Normandy and the Loire …
