Dinner and magical sunsets at La Vudèle

A bonus when staying at La Vudèle is that they offer a table d’hôtes, meaning you get a 3-course dinner with the hosts. Something I definately made sure before my arrival that I was very interested in having :-)

The first evening Jim proposed me a very delicious basil dessert wine he had made. Together with the handpicked marinated olives (did I mention Claudia and Jim have got over 200 olive trees?) from their own olive grove .

Claudia was so kind sending me the reciepies of the meals she had done so here we go. As a starter, the first evening she had made a very tasty soup, flageolet soup, made with fresh sage from their garden, fresh sarriette (savory) and thyme also from their garden. Together with peeled tomato and flageolet beans she had let it simmer slowly for 30 minutes, then let it rest in order to let the flavors absorb and then turned on the low heat for 15 minutes. It was served with hand-picked organic olive oil (olive oil made with olives from their own olive grove), balsamic vinegar from Italy, fresh grated parmesan cheese and topped with alfalfa sprouts she had let grown a few days before my arrival :-)

The main course was a crêpe with a Provencale twist! The crêpe was vegan (only flour, milk and salt) and it was filled with slow-cooked seasonal vegetables in their hand-picked organic olive oil and the sauce it was accompagnied with was made of a soycuisine sauce and red wine (and not lavendar that I thought when I saw it’s purple colour ;-) ).

The dessert was a yummie and refreshing lavendar sorbet that Claudia had made and that I totally fell in love with.

Accompagnied by wonderful hosts, magical sunsets I enjoyed this dinner very much and the very interesting subjects we were talking about. I slept very well that evening :-)
