To start and to keep us warm we had a celeriac and jerusalem artichoke soup with a roasted garlic spread on sourdough bread. This soup is going to be made again very soon. A delight this artichoke taste in the middle of autumn…
Then, the mushroom and polenta galette, which is a savory interpretation of this recipe, was generously sliced. As we were replete afterward, we kept the chocolate and nashi pear cake for later in the afternoon.
