I’ve spent the last week on Jersey visiting my incredible little sister or Wee Skanky as she is affectionately known. It’s been a week of watching Roman Duris movies, drinking disgusting quantities of Pimms and long, late night chats about boys. I had a really great time.
I thought today dear reader, if you don’t mind, I would deviate away from my normal course of writing a recipe and instead give you a quick run down of my holiday culinary highlights. I hope you don’t mind too much.
I wanted to write about where we had eaten because I was so impressed by the quality of all the food I managed to scoff my way through last week. I wouldn’t want you to miss out…
Not remotely bohemian but it is Michelin starred. It’s the best 3 course meal I think I’ve had for under £25 quid.
|No photos of the meal in bohemia, I didn't want to do the photo taking thing in there. Make do and mend with one of wee skanky and me instead.|
A sweet little cafe on a pretty square in St Malo. It is a wonderful place to sample the famous Breton galette.
|Buckwheat galette for breakfast of course|
I’ve been fantasising about the welks for a week now. Simple crustacean pleasure and French café culture personified.
|Implements of torture?|
|crab, prawns, 2 different types of oysters. shrimp, periwinkles and wonderful welks|
Cheap, super tasty and generally authentic Thai food from an understated beach hut. The beef massaman curry was particularly awesome.
