is this a good absinthe to buy? I cook fish with a splash of Pernod and like the taste! I have never tried absinthe so I am not sure which is the best. Merci bien!

Pernod is of course the grande marque, or big daddy :-), of old absinthe. The House of Pernod was founded by Major Dubied who bought the recipe from the Henriod sisters (according to legend). Original bottles of Pernod from the 1900s fetch a lot of money today! But I have not tried Pernod aux extraits de plantes d’absinthe, which is a brand they sell now.
I do not think it is the same recipe ..according to what I have read anyway.

Perhaps you could try an absinthe sorbet if you like to use absinthe in the kitchen.

Snails in pastry and absinthe? No thanks. I wouldn't mind trying the brulee though. Bar à l’Absinthe Fromages.....???????
