She loves to treat family and friends and it didn’t take much insistence that she unveil an Aveyron recipe, “Les Pascades”, which she got from her mother and her grandmother, which is to say that she does not date from yesterday: “Make pancakes with a rather thick dough to which one incorporates a good quantity of sorrel or parsley. This dish of the poor was tasted accompanied by a soup of chestnuts or cabbage with bacon. “
Suffice to say that in winter and after a day’s work, it “stuck to the body” as they say.
Thanks to Reine for this recipe, we are more and more fond of these ancient and local dishes.
