Côté Table, Mars, March moments

 

Côté Table, Mars, March moments. Welcome to March ! It is the in-between month…. A few spring flowers poking their blooms bravely through the soil. But no fresh home-grown vegetables or fruit to get eager about.

It is time to enjoy the last of the frost nipped root vegetable, dry vegetables and spices with this delicious Red Lentil and Carrot Cake.

Then, what more healthy and invigorating than a beautiful Skate Wing with a Saffron Vinaigrette. It is a fish feast and if you are into seafood you will love it ! But the dessert that makes you go mmmm… and that will please all the ones around the table is called the Rum Baba. A classic, but always appreciated, especially during the end of winter. So enjoy and Bon Appétit at la Classe de Cuisine !
