Family Alexandra - Responsable Communication By Alexandra - Responsable Communication, the 30 December 2016

Christmas passed and the New Year's Eve to approach with large steps, but you do not still know what to cook for the parties? If you are out of inspiration, this article is for you!

Dare the regional menu to change traditional dishes of the end of year.

In entrance, I suggest you stuffed inhabitant of Poitou, a typical dish of Poitou with vegetables (sorrel, cabbages, salad, chards, leeks, parsley, onions ...) and possibly of bacon.

Small council: present this entrance to small portion, because it is rather copious!

“Petite Cuillère et Charentaises” proposes us the recipe extracted from its blog. Here is the list of the ingredients which you will need to make of stuffed inhabitant of Poitou.

Recipe for 4 people:
· 500 gr. of sorrel
· 150 gr. of bacon salted with some fat
· Some rags
· 6 eggs
· Breadcrumbs
· Butter
· Salt and pepper.

For main course, I propose you a bouilliture of eels of the Swamp. That changes and you will surprise your friends!

For these recipe, we shall need following ingredients:

· Some small eels
· One liter of red wine (Chinon or top-Poitou, for example)
· 5 cloves of garlic and shallots

In cheese, Chabichou, of course! Legendary cheese, undisputed star of the region, the famous goat cheese of Poitou can taste with a white wine Sauvignon AOC of top-Poitou in the apéritif (to consume in moderation).

Some more of appetite? For dessert, the baked cheesecake, the inescapable dessert of the gastronomy from Poitou, accompanied with an ice in the angelica.
