Perfect for winter - dishes from The Taste of the Tour de France

Great winter recipes with a taste of France can be had at Taste de Tour de France. If you enjoy cycling and following those wonderful athletes as they hurtle through the Pyranees, the added bonus is viewing one of my favourite chefs, Gabriel Gate celebrate and create the regional dishes of his motherland as the Tour de France progresses.

I was planning to make Gabriel's Rabbit Stew but Richard, my friendly butcher, was selling veal shanks today for $11.99 a kilo (his fresh wild rabbits were $13.99 each) so I have substituted the rabbit for the veal but everything else kept the same!
I have the shanks marinating overnight and I will slow cook them up on Sunday and enjoy with cous cous and rocket salad - with family and good friend, Mira (over a glass of big Rutherglen red, I think)

Visit the Food Book Blog at for the recipe

Here's a photo to whet your appetite
