In the program from the place du château, Lise is having a party with food that puts you in a good mood. To be inspired! Start by making a wonderful homemade bread.

Loff with historic buzz

You have to go back to the dissolution of the union in 1905 to find the origin of this bread. It was Queen Maud who brought the recipe from England.


Italian classic

The veal and tuna sauce is an unusual combination, but it tastes fantastic. You make it almost in advance and then make it the same day. Serve for lunch or as a starter.

Tip: If you don’t have time to roast the veal, you can cheat and use ready-made roast beef.


Homemade burgers are a must for young and old. Here are two varieties with and without meat – and lots of digg accessories.

For the party we must have a cake with strawberries and cream. It’s called a naked cake because it’s simple and doesn’t have a lot of cream and decorations that hide the layers.


The pavlova has gradually become a classic on the May 17 holiday table. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, with cream and berries. Vary by making pavlovas in small portions.

National romantic appetizers

Make waffles with boiled potatoes and serve with different toppings.

on the grill

Salmon and asparagus thrive on the grill. You grill the salmon with a nice herb butter. Grill it whole, with the skin, in aluminum foil. The asparagus are given a honey mustard vinaigrette and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top.

Two salads

Beautiful red strawberry salad ingredients dress each other up. Good with and without feta cheese. In the cauliflower salad, there are almonds and pomegranate seeds which provide a nice contrast.

Scrambled eggs and charcuterie

Use plenty of time and prepare a fluffy and creamy scrambled egg, then it will be the star on the party table.
