... probably the last post of the year and we're having a late breakfast cum lunch: brunch, then. We're out later and will no doubt get to eat a little later than usual and there'll be a lot of drink, so wise to get our stomachs lined!

We're having a Poutine, of sorts.

Poutine is a French Canadian dish of fries, gravy and cheese curd. We have some smoked salmon left over from the Christmas period which needs using up and some cottage cheese which really wants eating. Potatoes, goose fat and a heavy based skillet ...

Presenting: the Pesce-Poutine!


If you were to have a go at this, you'll need:
  • Smoked salmon
  • Boiled egg
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Potatoes, goose fat and a skillet
  • Red cabbage and rocket leaves
  • Paprika and Tabasco
Peel and cut up the potatoes into chips, fries, frites, or whatever your language dictates, par boil for a few minutes and then fry off in a skillet in lots of goose fat. Lovely job!

Meanwhile, shred up some red cabbage and mix with rocket leaves.

Chips ready? Shove a handful in a bowl with the salad over, mounding cottage cheese over, smoked salmon on top and a boiled egg to crown.

Sprinkle a little paprika over the egg, splash a load of Tabasco all over it and season with a little black pepper and sea salt.

Sorted! Now, on with the New Year celebrations! Cheers, all ... Happy 2014.
