MARTINE’S ALPINE DINNER
Martine Cuenat, EatWith, Barby, France
Served with a view of Mont Granier and the Belledonnes in the French Alps, near the historic city of Chambéry
3 shallots cut in quarters
Salt and pepper
Wash the carrots but don’t peel them. Place them on a pan lined with parchment baking paper and sprinkle with thyme, salt, and pepper. Cut shallots in quarters and lay on top. Drizzle with a lot of olive oil. Bake in 180 degree Celsius oven for 30 to 45 minutes if carrots are small, 1 hour if they are large. Test by poking with a knife.
