It's a wet and windy day in Saint-Aignan. It's the kind of day when you just want to pull the covers up over you head and stay in bed. The temperature is up to 12ºC — that's the mid-50s F.
Or, if you do haul your carcass out of bed, then you want to cook something good. At least I do. Well, I'm obviously up and moving around, so you can guess what my project is this morning: lunch. Something with shrimp, mushrooms, shallots, cream, and flaky pastry — pâte feuilletée.
I see that much of the U.S. is damp right now too. Wherever you are, eat something warm, tasty, and nourishing, and be patient. Spring is right around the corner.
