Delicious French market recipe: Stone fruit & chèvre goat cheese salad.
In this week’s video (link in bio) marché tour, I shared with you a little note that I rarely go to the market with a list or recipe in mind.
Here is my rather spontaneous tactic:
° First, I wander the aisles and observe the vendors and what is for sale that is super seasonal and grown in France.
° I start to make a mental list of the individual ingredients.
° And then I find a spot to hang out for a minute where I quickly devise or google a recipe that has all or most of those things in it!
I am a planner by heart and a brand strategist by trade, so this Virgo rarely does things impulsively. But I have a lot of fun with this process – it feels lighthearted, challenging, and creative to come up with recipes on the spot.
In today’s post, I share an adaptation to a recipe I discovered, using the “peche plat,” pancake peaches, and cherries that caught my eye.
And I asked the cheesemonger to give me a dry goat cheese good for a salad. This is another excellent tactic if you have a little bit of French language skills – tell the vendor what you are using the product for. They’ll offer the best pairing, cut the meat or fish for that use, or help you make a decision.
