FINE 'PEASANT' FOOD and WINE


 This weekend we have had good health reasons ( the FOOD CRISIS that hit Germany this week; the discovery of the cancer-causing chemical dioxin in german animal feed) to stay away from german food and rather go for, par example, a french alternative;  Our choice fell on some french sausages and lentils inspired by JAMIE OLIVER'S tv cooking show; JAMIE DOES..  FRENCH PYRÉNÉES  (there are among a lot of tasty looking dishes a very charming scene with a truffle pig and his farmer) together with the french wine PARIGOT BOURGOGNE TRADITION ROUGE. A red sparkling BURGUNDY made only from PINOT NOIR. Back in the days it was traditionally used in local farmer weddings instead of the more exclusive CHAMPAGNE.
