Wow - looks great. So many things to look at!


Great round-up, Johanna! It's interesting that all the meat main courses were based around beef too - I nearly did coq au vin, but the beef won out in the end.

The Ginger Gourmand

Thanks for such a lovely write up Johanna! The dishes all look lovely, although I'm surprised too see there are no fish dishes and only one dessert. I'm looking forward to reading my new cookbook... Thank you!


great round up - thanks for the great explanation of bistro food in your intro - that just makes so much sense - I too am surprised that there are so few desserts - now I think maybe I should have sent you my recent apricot crumble! And I am looking forward to your chocolate soup - I'll be there with a big spoon!


(Drool, rumble, rumble) Mmm. These are definitely going to make their way to menus on my table! Especially the Ham Hock Pea & Leek Soup! Can't wait.

Looks great Johanna but I think you missed me out!

The Ginger Gourmand

Thanks so much for the copy of Today's Special which arrived today - I can't wait to make something out of it this weekend!

The Meal Planner

Wow all the entries look incredible! Thanks for doing such a great job hosting. I'm definitely salivating :)


I have been inspired to convert from a ready meal takeaway kind of gal, to a cooking wonderful heary meals at home kind of gal :)

Great write-up and round-up Johanna! It was a pleasure to participate, and to be among such fine company.

Thank you for including my submission, and for the kind words of praise!!
