What to do during the quarantine ?

We’re just like you, we love to chill on Netflix but if you’ve run out of stuff to watch here’s our top choices :

Vikings

Friends 

Peaky Blinders

La casa de papel

How I met your mother

Earth

During my quarantine I play games !

MONOPOLY

The object of the game is to ruin its competitors through real estate transactions. It symbolizes the apparent and spectacular aspects of capitalism, fortunes being made and undone over the course of the dice.

SCRABBLE

The SCRABBLE is a board game and a letter game where the objective is to accumulate points, on the basis of random draws of letters, by creating words on a square grid, some of the boxes of which are awarded. Try to beat your grandparents !

CATAN

Its success can be explained by the simplicity of its rules combined with real tactical and strategic depth, as well as a friendly dimension provided by the principle of resource exchanges.

Quite long playing time, but very addictive !

TAROT

As long as you want ! Be brave, this game is quit complex…

La Blanquette de Veau !

2 carrots

1 leak

85g of butter

Keep your vegetables cooking in the pot. 
  1. On the side, prepare a roux (french cooking technique) with 70g of the butter and 70g of flour. Then add 1L of the broth you were preparing beforehand and mix till creamy. To this add the cream and pepper and stir in well. Reduce the heat to low and add back in the pieces of meat. Check for taste and add seasoning if necessary.
  1. In another pan, add in a tablespoon of water, the lemon, 15g of butter and salt and pepper. Boil this and then add in the mushrooms. Let cook for 10 minutes and then add to the other pot. Let simmer for a couple of minutes.
