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!

Emilie did an outstanding job choosing ideal locations, charming B and B's and accommodating our requests. We went from Normandy to Aix to the Alps to Paris and were happy with the entire trip.

This was our first trip to Europe with just the two of us doing all the planning. I was looking for someone to help with the details of lodging and transportation and found Emilie through this site. She planned an incredible trip for us to Normandy/Brittany, Loire Valley and Paris. She is easy to work with, responsive and organized. I told her what …

My boyfriend and I spent a week in Paris last month and we decided that we would do a couple of day-tours outside of the city during our trip. We really wanted to avoid the typical tour-bus day-tour and the crowds that come along with these kinds of tours – we wanted something more personalized that would allow us to go at our own pace. I found the …
