Gael Pancakes

A couple of days ago, I received a wonderful surprise in the mail. It was from DG in France, (she of the birthday biscuits), and it was a tube of Clement Faugier's crème de marrons de l'ardèche vanillée (vanilla flavoured chestnut spread) and a picture of Gael Garcia Bernal!

Make the basic pancakes from HTE and squeeze some on - delicious! much like our loverboy Gael, seen here at the Cannes film festival this year.

How could I say no? So I reprised the pancakes from Basics etc. for breakfast this morning, incidentally with a cup of Fortnum and Mason's Breakfast Roast coffee, also sent to me by DG not too long ago.

Unfortunately, the tube seemed to have split in transit - but the majority of paste was, thankfully, still in the tube, and not all over Gael's beautiful face.

Mmm... delicious! And the pancakes were pretty good too.
