Salmon blanquette (a very French stew prepared in a veloute sauce) – with or without a Thermomix

A blanquette is a ragout of meat usual (clearly not in this case), prepared in a veloute sauce. My absolute favourite recipe that my mum makes is blanquette of veal.

However, veal is not very common or popular here in the UK and a bit of fish is good for you. So we’ve tried this salmon version of blanquette and loved it!

Made with a hint of large family madness, a pinch of dinner parties and a scoop of easy and quick recipes, this blog is a well-round concoction (!!) of tried and tested food we love.

The gang is made off a mum, a dad, 4 girls (aged 17, 15, 6 & 6) and 1 dog. That’s a lot of people to please when it comes to dinner time.

The 2 main characters in the story are: Maud (the human mum) & Momo (the Thermomix), we were both born in France, both have a passion for cooking, simple, tasty food – cooking & baking makes us happy!
