Elle Jauffret


Stoverij from INCONCEIVABLE! by Tegan Wren

A snippet of a scene from INCONCEIVABLE! 

John hovered a table covered in pieces of lace. “[…] Don’t you think you need to take home some Brussels lace?[…]” […] “What’s stoverij?” I asked. “It’s a meat stew, a classic Flemish dish. They add a nice bit of strong beer from one of the local Trappist abbeys. It also comes with pommes frites.”  (INCONCEIVABLE by Tegan Wren, ebook, p.136 & 145)

The story: A romance with a modern medical twist which follows Hatty Brunelle (a Missouri Ozarks native and journalism student at Toulene’s Royal University) and John Meinrad (the dreamy Prince of Toulene, a small European country), their romance, courtship, marriage, and struggles with infertility. European/international settings and characters guaranteed.


Recipe: Stoverij with pommel frites

For the "pommel frites" ("French fries" in French), simply peel and slice potatoes lengthwise, place in oven, drizzle with olive oil, and bake at 450 degree F for about 45 minutes. (or fry in a deep fryer until golden).
