[Celery root mash, coq au vin, fennel confit, and herb salad]
Another Cool Fest has come and gone. The theme for my contribution was ‘French peasant,’ with lots of comfy, messy dishes like coq au vin, rabbit cassoulet, lentil soup, and chocolate tarts. As usual, I took hardly any photos because I was so swamped bustling around the kitchen (I really wish I had remembered to get a shot of that apple tart I made the first night!), but it’s hard to complain about a weekend that was so full of love and friendship and generosity. And so, so much killer music! Cool Fest never fails to inspire me. Big thanks to all my pals who helped me wash and chop vegetables!
