    ah yes, confiture de lait. Three jars of it minimum every time I’m in France. Bonne Maman do a very nice version. I wish they’d sell it here. I have a jar of dulce de leche which I bought in Superquinn, but I do prefer the French version.

    I didn’t realise that you could get dulce de leche in Superquinn – I’ll have to do a search for that! But I suspect you’re right about the French version being better. Wonder why they don’t sell the Bonne Maman confiture de lait over here. I’ve only recently started coming across their little baked custards – albeit only in Dunnes on Georges Street. Very random distribution of nice foods, for some reason.

    They only sell the tip of the iceberg in terms of Bonne Maman products here. I have long ceased wishing for things…the other part of a French supermarket which I would kill to see replicated in Ireland is the refrigerated section. I always have a nice long shopping list when I go over.There’s a couple of flavours of dulce de leche floating around Superquinn in addition to the straight one – I’ve seen a banana flavour(ed) one and, also, I think coconut. I found it during pancake week but was interested to notice they still had some the week before last, at least.

    When I was an au pair in Chamonix, many years ago, I spent many an afternoon wandering around the French supermarkets (not much else to do in your spare time there!) but, without a kitchen to experiment in, I didn’t have much scope for experimentation. Next time in France, I must drag the Boyfriend to the supermarkets for a proper survey.
