all kinds of things.....

modern day johnny......




Yes - I recall these guys - they came even as far as Scotland which seemed to us kids to be a hell of a long way, and they had GARLIC as well - almost unknown in UK and still not particularly liked!
For us, it was an adventure, and we were sad when we found out they rented a barn round the corner where they stored the stuff and slept! Their products were very expensive, but now and then we we were allowed some, and we enjoyed them immensely.
Of course, the oignon (and the échalot/shallots/garlic) are an integral part of most classical cooking, giving taste and accelerating the taste buds...... they also have extreme antibiotic workings, and are supposed to be an anti cancer or arthritic combatant......
Probably the most well known French prepared dish is 'Soupe d'oignon' - prepared and served at midnight on the 31 Dec/1st January! served with or without grated cheese and croutons
everybody likes that, and served with champagne it gets up the girlies noses.......always amusing! Yep - that time  of year is comin' up - again.....! I've got the Italian 'panattoni' the German 'Stollen', the French Oysters, Champagne and Foi gras come later - won't be having mince pies again, unless somebody sends them or 'Lidl' comes up with them - I do have the German/Austrian 'knodel' (sugary like christmas dumplings) probably some kind of fowl or meat later.......So - we started off with onion Johnny and we're ending up with Christmas.....!
