A new blog, Cuisine de Provence is, none the less, a rather tasty experience.
I started with a nice warming dish of Lentil Stew to beat the Winter Blues (and very nice it was too!) and because I had read in another post that, they’d had Snow in Provence!
Perhaps I’m jealous but… it seems that every self respecting Life in Provence blog has an article about the snow.
It’s no news to us up here in the frozen North! We’ve still got left over snow from the winter of ’63 (that were a cold ‘un alright – Marie-France, just up the lane, went to her outside lavvy for a widdle and, when she tried to pull the chain, her hand froze to it! It took us 3 months to thaw her out enough so that she could come back indoors!)
Still, at least we can warm up with a good old Restaurant Rant! Now, I do love one of those!
And then, there’s the Sea Urchin Festival to enjoy (try clicking on the photos to see them at full rersolution.)
But, my favourite post has got to be Fennel Salad with Goats Droppings! It almost makes me wish I had a hated mother in law to serve it to!
Her: “What foreign muck is he serving today? Don’t know why you didn’t marry that Derek who works down the corporation, he wouldn’t have you eating this foreign muck!”
Me: “Goat’s plop salad for you mother dearest! Goat’s poo salad!”
There’s no too much here at Cuisine de Provence at the moment but, it looks like it’s gathering momentum and may well become one of the hottest dining places in town.
In the usual way, I implore you not to take my word for it, pop in for a visit yourself and have a quick nibble of Cuisine de Provence.
All the best
