  1. I keep meanong to get a spoon rest! I sold so many things before I left Australia. I think edible insects will become a big thing soon in culinary gourmet food.

  2. Hi Tandy! Great post, I give you credit for trying insect larvae. My take on them was they tasted slightly like over cooked kettle chips, except the grasshoppers they were just crunchy, haha!
    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  3. Oh no! I love my spoon rest, I’m so sorry to hear you’ve broken yours! The confit duck sounds fabulous, and I was recently given the Maille mustard with cognac – it was VERY good! Thanks for always joining in, even when it feels like hard work, Tandy! xxx

  4. There must be something in the air Tandy, I’ve been a bit the same with taking photos. Pleased to see you did get your mojo back though and what an interesting mix of things….hmmm I’m not sure about the insects though, but in the right company I would give them a try 🙂 Jan x

    • I must say, I think it is the cold keeping me out of my ‘studio’. I did not make it there this weekend at all 🙂

  5. What a great IMK post Tandy! I did not know one could get cassoulet in a can! Love that mustard and use it all the time! And love the raspberry curd!

  6. Tandy, it must have been heavenly to visit Maille’s shop in Paris! Sorry to hear about your lavender bush though. Mine took a beating with our torrential rains, but it seems to be recovering now. I’ve never tried gluhwein, but it sounds like a warming winter treat.

  8. You are so brave! I could never try insects. In Korea, where I live, you can eat silkworms but I’ve not been able to stomach it. I don’t like the smell of them, so putting them in my mouth doesn’t tempt me!

    • I don’t know if I could eat silkworms either. I used to keep them as ‘pets’ when I was a child. Thanks for the visit Maggie 🙂

  9. If I recall you freezer your starter when you travel? And its always fine when you take it out? Do you just defrost then feed?

    • Hi, that is well remembered. I have never had a problem when I take it out of the freezer. I defrost the starter in my fridge, and as soon as it is defrosted I give it a good feed. Hope it works for you 🙂

  14. The variety of cassoulet in tins and jars as the supermarket was breathtaking in France. I’m glad you’ve made a suggestion for a good brand. I don’t have a spoon rest but perhaps I need one?

    Always interesting to see what’s going on Tandy. xx
