While I’m calling this a dish du jour with today’s date, the photo below was actually taken this past weekend, while we were having lunch at our favourite nearby restaurant, O Moulin, in Carsac, about 25 minutes from Daglan.
This was the entrée chosen by my wife Jan to start her meal (although technically we had begun with an assortment of amuse-bouches, including an absolutely delicious serving of cream of chestnut soup). Here’s Jan’s pretty dish of scallops:
On the restaurant’s menu, the dish was described as Normandy scallops with Camembert ravioli in a mushroom sauce with cider gel. Because Jan is allergic to gluten, the ravioli were left off the dish. But no complaints from Jan — and I thought the dish was lovely.
