  1. Delicious Caroline! I’m a huge fan of Vacherin d’Or too, we picked one up from Iago in the market last week, and you’ve reminded me that the season is almost up – must head in for more today!Our Valentine’s dinner is the one meal in the year to which I have no input. Pierce made us a feast of steak which he had marinated overnight and pommes dauphinoise together with some tomatoes and guacamole!!! Even though I only eat steak just once a year (when he cooks it for V-day, he knows me so well 🙂 ) and there was quite a taste explosion going on all across the plate, it was the nicest meal I’ve had in months! He even managed to snaffle a Faustino Gran Reserva I to wash it all down, just a shame that it all went to my head and I conked out in front of the Luc Besson movie he had rented for the occasion!

    That’s where I got my cheese too – I do love hovering around Iago’s display, waiting to be served and spotting lots of other things that I just can’t resist buying!Sounds like Pierce knows his stuff in the kitchen. Steak and pommes dauphinoise – a match made in heaven (even if you didn’t stick around too long afterwards!).
