Pieds et Paquets
Sheep's feet and stuffed parcels made from the lining of a sheep's stomach.
Pieds et paquets means 'feet and parcels'. It is a traditional dish in the south of France and is originally from Marseille.
The feet in the recipe are from sheep or lambs. The parcels are made by:
1. Cutting a sheep's stomach lining into small squares.
2. Placing a filling of chopped pork belly, garlic and parsley in the centre of each square.
3. Enveloping the filling by creating a little 'parcel'. A picture of some filled parcels prior to cooking is seen below.
The sheep's feet and the parcels are cooked together in a pan with wine, herbs and tomatoes.
