Lambs bits and pieces
We just got back from a trip to the supermarket and I spotted something new for Susie-Belle’s supper tonight. Thinking I knew what the French for lamb’s kidney was – rognon d’agneau – I picked up a packet of what I thought were little round kidneys.
At the checkout, Michel remarked, oh she’ll like those good choice. Oh she has kidneys at home I say, but she hasn’t had any since we’ve been here. These aren’t kidneys, he says, they’re rognon blanc d’agneau, yes, rognon, kidney I say, beginning to doubt my mastery of French culinary vocabulary.
Have you ever seen white kidneys he asks. What a difference a little word like blanc can make.
I’m sure she’s still going to love them, little round balls of taste and deliciousness for Susie-Belle’s supper.
