Next month a new restaurant is about to open in our town, called Brasserie Amelie, a French inspired restaurant with snacks and wine.
And this inspired us to try some French delicacy: Artichokes with dips and garlic-honey bread
I have never eaten artichokes, but they turned out to be really easy to cook and VERY yummy!!!
I made two different dips, a typical French vinaigrette and Garlic Mayo
1 Tbsp mustard
1 Tbsp Sherry vinegar
4 Tbsp oil (no olive oil)
thyme and rosemary
Put all ingredients into an old jar, close it and shake it well, the result is smooth and creamy almost like mayo…great
4 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp Worcestersauce
1 tsp Sherry vinegar
1 dash lemon juice
4 cloves of garlic
Garlic Honey Bread
1 tsp sourdough starter (made mine fresh, just mix wholewheat flour and warm water 1:1 and put it on a warm place for some days, put mine on the sunny balcony for one day and it was sour!)
2 cups flour
1 cup warm water
Mix and put on a warm place overnight.
3 cups flour
3/4 cup warm water
1/2 pack. dry yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 Tbsp honey
Mix with risen dough and beat well, let rise for about 3 hour.
Roll out into a square
4 cloves garlic cut in quarters
1 tsp fresh rosemary chopped
Spread on dough, roll it up and shape a loaf, cut it diagonal and let rise again for half an hour.
Bake at 350°F for about 40 Min.
Then it will look like this
