An opportunity to focus on these institutions that have been disappearing for decades but have been reviving for the last ten years. They dropped from 200,000 in the 1960s to 36,000 in 2010, but now stand at more than 40,000.
However, Thierry Marx regrets that new bistros are emerging in city centers, even in trendy neighborhoods when there is still a shortage of them in rural areas. As a recipe he offers lentils Morton.
Ingredients for 2 people :
2 fine morto sausages, 400 g green lentils, 1 onion, 100 g pearl onion, 2 carrots, garlic, thyme, bay leaf, 1 clove, fine salt, 20 ml dry white wine, 80 g sweet butter, 20 g sugar, 1 tablespoon stale mustard.
Bring the lentils to a boil, squeeze well to clean, refill with plenty of water. Add diced carrots, crushed garlic, cloves and herbs. Bring to a boil, then cook over low heat for 1 hour, stirring frequently.
Add Morton, pre-cooked in a boiling water bath for 3-4 minutes. Let it cook for half an hour.
In a separate pot, melt 30 g of butter on a low flame, rub the cleaned, crushed onion with sweat, rub with white wine, then cook until it is reduced by half.
Add the pearl onion (for better peeling they can be put in cold water) with the remaining 50 g butter և sugar to caramelize.
