Aligot (4-6)

These magical cheesy mashed potatoes are a speciality of Auvergne in South West France and were once the popular sustenance for pilgrims heading to Santiago de Compostela. This is Felicity Cloake’s ” perfect” version.

Red Mullet Soup (8-10)

This is really a French recipe but it is from ” Rhodes Around Britain” by Gary Rhodes. It should be served with Garlic Toasts with Rouille. To make the garlic toast cut a french stick into 1 cm slices and spread with some garlic butter. Toast the slices then top with Rouille.
