Petit Sale Aux Lentilles Vertes

"In English: Green Lentils & Ham Hock Stew This is a very popular winter dish in France, easy to prepare, inexpensive and tasty and filling. When I was living there I used to eat this a lot! It is ideally eaten with fresh crusty bread with a bottle of sturdy red to hand. Ham hock is the same as gammon or pork knuckle. You buy them from the deli already smoked. A bouquet garni is two bay leaves, some parsley, thyme and rosemary, all tied up with a piece of string"
