I received the beautiful card from Annecy, a place I'd love to see, last year through Postcrossing. The stamp on it surprised me because although I knew the post office in France had published a series on regional foods, I didn't think blancmange would be a dish to celebrate and it's nothing to do with Annecy. It was always something of a joke at school. Clearly I haven't had the opportunity to eat the real thing.
There was a series of twelve in the booklet, these being the remaining eleven. Even there, there were a few surprises. French caviar? I had no idea.
Quite mouth-watering on the whole and a little more expected than blancmange. They are meant to be arranged as three menus of four courses: starter, main course, cheese and dessert. I'm afraid I had them in alphabetical order before I realised.
