Cooking

 

 

 

Cooking in coalpotFood like breadfruits are very tasty when cooked on wood or on coals. You find all the flavor. Better taste and especially if it is cooked in a clay pot.

 

Les plats cuisinés comme le fruit  à pain sont délicieux quand ils sont cuisinés sur le bois ou sur un terçon . Vous retrouverez toute leur saveur.  Le gout s'en dégage d'autant plus s'ils sont cuisinés  dans une soupiere en terre
