Oh, it's lentils! I like it!
It's a bit rarity in Russia (we prefer buckwheat or millet), but it's tasty with meat!

I could not identify this. I often buy the following: Lentil & veggie soup. €0.55

Today, I'm going to send you a riddle.

Look at the photo below.



You can see a small truckle of cheese and a piece of bread. In the background, you may have noticed the bottle of white wine.
But what is the French name of this cheese? this is the riddle. I would like to invite the most courageous users to take up the challenge.
If you look carefully at the picture below, you'll find a clue.

I guess some users found the answer to the riddle but they were probably too shy to give it on the forum.
The little cheese in the previous message is a crottin de chèvre, a goat cheese produced in the Loire Valley.

What you see is certainly a healthy meal made of chopped spinach and pâté. If you are looking at the glass, you must think that the color of the wine is somewhat unusual. Were it a claret, I wouldn't drink it. Actually, this is a glass of orange juice.

On the left of the picture, you can see the Pâté: this is a French term used to describe a dish made from a mixture of ground meat and fat. Traditionally, pâtés include organ meat; liver is the most commonly used, as it contributes positively to both the earthy flavor and the spreadable texture of the pâté.
If you are vegan you must be think this pâté is just fuming and slaughtered animal meat. Hopefully, this is not the case: It's an excellent pâté de campagne. You should care about the sourcing of your meat. Purchase from a trusted butcher to make sure it's high-quality and fresh.


Vasudev and humbert may find the green stuff disgusting. But this leafy vegetable, known as spinach, is considered a superfood because of the loads of nutrients and low-calorie that it possesses. Some of the powerful health benefits of spinach are that this vegetable helps stabilise your blood glucose levels, helps in reducing your risk of developing cancer and is good for bone health.
If you want to be as strong as Popeye, you should probably add spinach to your diet.

Actually I like spinach. The only reason I don't eat it more often is because I don't have the time nor the interest to cook a meal. I just open a can or defrost frozen food in the microwave. When it comes to eating I'm like a cockroach: I eat just about anything. If it were up to me I wouldn't eat at all. Unfortunately I have no say in the matter.

I stopped chicken almost decades ago. Only eat veggies, fish and mutton(rare).

This is a pretty healthy diet. For proteins, I remember you said you had eggs too.

Actually, I didn't want to spoil the myth of the French pâté de campagne (country pâté) so I didn't reveal the content of this pâté. What's more, the adjective excellent was used to describe this pâté. But you don't know if this mark of excellence refers to the taste or the quality of the meat.
At this point, humbert and Maher probably think that this excellent pâté is a foie gras made from the livers of fattened geese raised outdoors. Technically, foie gras is a kind of pâté even if you never refer to it as pâté because of its elevated status. As far as this pâté de campagne is concerned, it is pork-based, made of pork neck and liver. In other pâtés de campagne you may also find chicken liver.
