I don't know where I got it from but have always thought warm milk for coffee and cold for tea... maybe it's just me! I have recently switched from semi skimmed to full fat milk because of getting the fat soluble vitamins plus it's easier with a baby in the house to buy one type of milk...
Thank you Shaliby for the interesting information on Cassoulet, my husband would really like to make this for us. We saw a while back Rick Steins French boat tour and this is something he attempted to make on his journey, it has stuck in husbands mind ever since
Beckyboo, it makes perfect sense to me warm milk in coffee and cold in tea.. don't know why but it does
I too found your explanation about cassoulet very interesting Shaliby, and I was thinking how much my OH would love that type of food, then I saw B's comments about Rick Stein's French Odyssey trip, I really enjoyed the programme, went and got my recipe book of the same title and found the cassoulet recipe.
I couldn't eat a croissant cold, I like them warm with apricot jam, or anything sweet, the hot cheese and ham sounds good too.
Well, I had a look at Rick Stein's recipe (https://www.lifestylefood.com.au/recipes/3969/cassoulet) and compared it to recipes in French and it looks quite OK (as there are about 10 different styles for this dish). A good tip : rub the inside of your pot with a garlic clove. I don't know if all the ingredients are easily available ? Anyway "Bon appétit" !
