A French Supper: Pernod Classic Saffron Bouillabaisse, Fennel Soup, & Flourless Chocolate Cake

Today I’m cooking with one of my favorite spirits, Pernod Classic. I’ve had a bottle in my cupboard for as long as I can remember, and it usually found its way into brothy concoctions of herbs, butter, and shellfish. I splash it in soups, whip it into my aioli, and sometimes even my whip cream.

So, when they reached out and asked me to develop some recipes, I was very excited to partner with them. This menu is the result: a creamy fennel & anise scented soup; a saffron, Pernod Classic, and orange infused Bouillabaisse with garlicky saffron aioli (crusty bread required); and a decadent chocolate flourless cake with a Pernod Classic infused whipped cream.


Miso Slow Roasted Salmon Bowl + Blood Orange & Fennel

Miso Glazed Slow Roasted Salmon with Blood Orange, Fennel, & Burnt Citrus Vinaigrette Miso Glazed Slow Roasted Salmon Salad Bowl with Fennel, Blood Orange, Beets, Avocado, and Farro in a Charred Citrus Vinaigrette. A quick & easy healthy weeknight winter recipe for citrus season! Recipe, photos, and styling by Beth Kirby of Local Milk.

Winter is still lingering in pockets, while in others (my own) there was a sunshine burst of near 80 degree weather last week! But citrus is still lining the market stalls, so here’s a bright winter rainbow bowl bursting with caramelized fennel & wintery roots, charred citrus, umami miso, succulent slow roasted salmon, and hints of fresh herbs. It’s winter produce with summer vibes. And like virtually all of my recipes now that I’m a working mom, it’s easy and adaptable. First burn some citrus in a skillet, then stir dressing up in a bowl, throw some haphazardly chopped veg on a sheet tray, roast a salmon filet on low for about 15 minutes (or omit it to make this a beautiful vegan rainbow bowl which we do often!), and boil some farro like pasta. Done and done. AND the leftovers are killer with an egg on top. Which is kind of our M.O. in this house. Eggs and avo on #allthethings. We’re not sorry about it.

Finally the essential Paris travel guide & map are here! Two years ago Matt & I came to Paris. Fast forward to now, and we’ve fallen in love with the city, rented an apartment, and call Paris home 6 months out of the year. Eula took her first bite of food here, her first steps here, and celebrated her first birthday here. It’s become our second home. And I’ve gotten to know it so well, though it’s forever full of surprises. Below I’ve given you my Paris travel tips for the first timer along with my favorite stays, coffee, eats, drinks, and shops. And I’ve included a free map of the most Instagrammable photography spots in Paris….cause I miiiiight know a thing or two about that! The map also has my favorite eats & shops on it, and you can use it on your phone! It’s the perfect companion to a trip to Paris or planning one!
