Day 365 - Time to drink, not to eat
I was really looking forward to making this recipe.  Amazingly, and possibly for the first time this year, I already had the correct ingredients at home.  Yay for me! I started preparing this early yesterday morning.  Firstly, I removed the bottles of champ...

Day 363 - Squid risotto
Last night I made the last risotto for the year.  Thank goodness for that.  Because I was struggling to be bothered I didn't do it exactly as you would do a risotto, which was probably a bit naughty. Firstly I fried some French shallots, asparagus and capsi...

Day 359 - Summertime spring rolls AND Day 360 - Rhubarb and berry compote
I managed to get two dishes done yesterday.  One for lunch and one to have for dessert after devouring yet another mountain of Christmas leftovers. Lunch was Summertime spring rolls.  I only made these for Matt, Emily and myself and I must say it was nice t...

Day 354 - Christmas biscuits
Of course as Christmas arrives, Mr Reyanud's recipes turn to baking.  Brilliant.  Not.  For Christmas Eve I had to make biscuits.  I have to say I'd rather make biscuits than a cake any day, but it's still not my idea of fun.  Luckily these were pretty stra...

Day 352 - Duck terrine
I actually made yesterday's dish on Friday as it needed to chill for 24 hours.  I wasn't sure how this would go.  I've become a fan of the terrine, but mostly the seafood or vege ones.  The rabbit one was okay but certainly not a favourite and I figured thi...

Day 364 - Racasse with lemon
Last night I cooked a dish that I reckon just narrowly misses making it into the top 10 for the year.  Racasse is the French word for Scorpion fish which I can't get here.  The alternative was Red Snapper which I also couldn't get, so I went with Gold Band ...

Day 361 - Stir-fried cuttlefish with garlic AND Day 362 - Panna cotta
I made two dishes again yesterday.  I decided I'd just serve the first one in a big bowl, give everyone a fork and people could help themselves. I couldn't be bothered trying to find cuttlefish so I went with squid tubes instead.  Firstly I sliced them into...

Day 355 - French-style peas (take 2) AND Day 356 - Carrots in colour (take 2) AND Day 357 - Leeks in a herb vinaigrette (take 2) AND Day 358 - Buche de Noel
So it's Christmas Day.  The actual recipe for today was a dessert, however I still needed to catch up on three recipes I've had to skip due to ingredients not being available.  I decided since I'd be cooking a whole heap of side dishes for Christmas Day tha...

Day 353 - Sardines grilled with rosemary
I cooked this dish what seems like years ago.  It was quite a while ago though.  Last Sunday to be exact.  I forgot how busy it gets around Christmas time so I've got lots to catch up on.   I was looking forward to this dish as the sardine recipe I'd made a...

Day 351 - Pissaladiére
Well, doesn't this recipe have an unusual name!  As it turns out it has nothing to do with going to the toilet but it is in fact  a focaccia-type dish made in the Italian region of  Uiguria, especially in the Province of Imperia, and in adjacent districts i...

Introduction
I live with my husband and daughter on the Gold Coast, Australia and I love to cook and eat! I particularly love French cuisine. I came across Stephane Reynaud's "365 Good Reasons to Sit Down to Eat" and decided I had to cook each dish from the book (in order if at all possible, as I clearly have nothing better to do with my time.) Yes, I know it's a bit Julie and Julia, but that's so yesterdays news. With a little encouragement from friends, I've started this blog to share my culinary journey with Stephane. I hope you enjoy. x
