A snippet of a scene from INCONCEIVABLE!
The story: A romance with a modern medical twist which follows Hatty Brunelle (a Missouri Ozarks native and journalism student at Toulene’s Royal University) and John Meinrad (the dreamy Prince of Toulene, a small European country), their romance, courtship, marriage, and struggles with infertility. European/international settings and characters guaranteed.
John hovered a table covered in pieces of lace. “[…] Don’t you think you need to take home some Brussels lace?[…]” […] “What’s stoverij?” I asked. “It’s a meat stew, a classic Flemish dish. They add a nice bit of strong beer from one of the local Trappist abbeys. It also comes with pommes frites.” (INCONCEIVABLE by Tegan Wren, ebook, p.136 & 145)
Recipe: Stoverij with pommel frites
For the "pommel frites" ("French fries" in French), simply peel and slice potatoes lengthwise, place in oven, drizzle with olive oil, and bake at 450 degree F for about 45 minutes. (or fry in a deep fryer until golden).
