This little French wonder was something I stumbled upon a little while ago at the Willunga Markets. I purchased some of the pate for a dinner party and we were all hooked. So imagine my delight when I found them again in Adelaide Central Market.
This glorious little piece of France is owned by Bastien (could the name be more appropriate?) But wait, he moved to Australia with his partner Katia, which makes me wonder if we are in the middle of a French romance novel at this point! Well, sort of because they are in love with each other and I am in love with their food...
A Little Bit of France in the Central Markets
I feel I have a little bit of authority here because I can call myself a former French Canadian. Which I think may bring a grin and a little head shake to both Katia and Bastien, but I'm sticking with that claim to back my well-founded opinion on this delicious art that is delightfully good.
Traditionally made readily enjoyed
From the roast chicken rillettes to the provencal herbs saucisson, your taste buds will be dancing. And then... there is the caramel au beurre sale or salted caramel in a quaint little jar that, if you like, you can recklessly pour over anything ...Or be a little more etiquette orientated and use a spoon. Either way, it's divine.
Caramel au Beurre Sale or Salted Caramel is on that shelf
Les Deux Coqs is having a special evening cooking class on Thursday October 25 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Central Markets. What an experience this will be: You will enjoy a platter with Les Deux Coqs handcrafted Charcuterie to share with a glass of wine (of course). There will be Boudins Blancs with Apples and Madeira Sauce. For the main, the famous Ratatouille with Salmon and finally, dessert is Crepe Suzette. The price is $95 dollars per person. You can actually purchase this in a gift card as well.
So the next time you go to Adelaide Central Market, welcome Bastien and Katia and try some of the amazing food they have so artistically and deliciously created. It's authentic and real and so very French. Well worth the visit.
