Prix-fixe lunch at home

When we were travelling in France, we used to order the prix-fixe lunch or the "menu du jour". I really enjoy this idea, because you have a complete meal and a surprise, all in one. In addition, the wine (sometimes included) makes the lunch an affair to remember! Here, I show you a similar French-style lunch, served in casual setting. An asparagus cream soup served with parmesan biscuit. So earthy and vibrant. The main course, my favorite risotto: fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, leeks, and sage. The leeks become so sweet when cooked for a long time. The salty prosciutto is there to create a nice contrast and here you have it: prix-fixe lunch at home!
