F1 Foods: Monaco round-up and Canadian challenge

Last weekend's Grand Prix in Monaco inspired me to make a dish called chicken Monte Carlo, even though I didn't have all the ingredients I needed - it still tasted really nice!

There were a couple of other entries for my Formula 1 Foods challenge; Suelle at Mainly Baking made this aniseed and orange frangipane jalousie. She's been a great contributor to this challenge and did a lot of research into potential bakes, and came across something called a fougasse. Suelle used that as inspiration and made a frangipane-filled pastry which looks great.

Fougasse was also the idea hit upon by Jane at Onions and Paper who has also been a very welcome regular contributor to this challenge! She made this with almonds and fennel, and couldn't find a recipe so devised her own. She said the flavours made a gorgeous combination.

The next Grand Prix takes place in Montreal, Canada, from June 5-7. I'd love to see your Canadian recipes whether they are sweet or savoury; please add them to the link up by Wednesday 10 June.
