À la Languedocienne



À la Languedocienne is a French cooking term used to describe a garnish.

In a "grand cuisine" context, it's a side accompaniment of cèpe mushrooms and sliced eggplant sautéed in butter or oil, along with potato balls the size of olives sautéed in butter.

In a looser sense, the garnish is just cèpe mushrooms, eggplant and tomatoes, and served with a garlic flavoured sauce.

Language Notes

"Languedocienne" is a reference to "Langue d'oc", meaning "the language in which 'oc' instead of 'oui' is used (to mean 'yes')". Which is to say, the south of France, where some older French dialects still persist.

"I was leafing through a magazine where there was a before-and-after picture of a woman who went from a size 5 to a size 3 by liposuction. Was she serious? I've cooked bigger turkeys than her 'before' picture."

-- Erma Bombeck (21 February 1927 – 22 April 1996)
