Thirsty Thursdays and Hungry Hearts ~ #3

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts - (un)Conventional Bookviews

It is hosted by Unconventional Bookviews . The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. 
So without further ado:

This week, my quote is from my top favourite book in this year so far, Devil in Spring from The Ravenels series by Lisa Kleypas. Its a historical romance story. Gabriel, son of Sebastian and Evie from Devil in Winter(Wallflowers series) is our hero and Pandora a wild spirited, independent and a very sweet girl is our heroine. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Now you enjoy reading about the feast.

The Challons’ cook and kitchen staff had outdone themselves with a variety of dishes featuring spring vegetables and local fish and game. Although the cook back home at Eversby Priory was excellent, the food at Heron’s Point was a cut above. There were colorful vegetables cut into tiny julienne strips, tender artichoke hearts roasted with butter, steaming crayfish in a sauce of white burgundy and truffles, and delicate filets of sole coated with crisp breadcrumbs. Pheasant covered with strips of bacon and roasted to juicy, smoky perfection was served with a side of boiled potatoes that had been whipped with cream and butter into savory melting fluff. Beef roasts with peppery crackled hides were brought out on massive platters, along with golden-crusted miniature game pies, and macaroni baked with Gruyère cheese in clever little tart dishes.

Thanks for stopping by! Leave links to your Thirsty Thursdays, I'll be sure to check it out!

  1. That's one delicious excerpt. I've been meaning to read a Lisa Kleypas book for ages! Hopefully I can get around to it soon.
