Last week I visited Augustine Kitchen to attend chef Franck Raymond’s salads workshop. This charming bistro serves up his French family’s recipes in a tapas style. We watched him effortlessly prepare a Thai salad using green papaya and fresh chillis, a classic tuna nicoise salad, lobster on black curry cous cous, a scallop ceviche salad with melons and grapefruit, and a puy lentil salad with mustard dressing. Please don’t ask me to pick a favourite!
After the salads, Franck delighted us with his classic tartiflette – a baked dish with potatoes, Reblochon cheese, bacon and onions. In other words, my idea of heaven on a cold winter evening.
Thanks to Franck for a wonderful taste of his home cooking, and to Sauce Communications for inviting me along.
