We just had a fantastic take away Pizza from Le Rosbif in St Vincent... Loads of toppings and great value... best Pizza we've had in ages, thoroughly recommend them! Yummy!

Just acquired a Swan Breadmaker. First time out I used a pre-mix, disaster, it was like a brick. So this last time I used Francine bread flour, Francine sachet of yeast etc, quite a bit better but still too heavy. I followed the instructions to the letter, do I need to do some tweaking? Any help would be great!

HiI hear so much about oysters in Brittany and have seen people eating them, but my own experience comes from England when I was ill from having some.I am not encouraged anyway, because I don't see the sense in just slurping it down in one swallow.In Florida, I have often been to an oyster restaurant (Callico Jack's) where we would enjoy STEAMED oysters by the bucket or half bucketful which would be chewed and tasty. They were, I believe, fresh water oysters. By the way, I am keen on cooked scallops.Can anyone tell me what I am missing should I get over it, and what I should do to get the best out of them.

We only normally come over to our house during the summer months and then we have barbecues or long evening meals out - in Dinan. This year we are coming over in December for a week, but not Christmas. Can you tell us please what is the best time to arrive at a restaurant in winter. We like to eat surrounded by French people enjoying their food!

Not something I normally use .. but have a wonderful recipe for a Dundee Cake and it calls for Black Treacle. I have to admit I haven't looked for this when shopping, but would I be correct in assuming that either Black Treacle or Molasses is something that you would only find in Health Food or Bio shop?

I have a big bucketful of delicious FALLEN Apples. That being so, they can' be stored in the normal way and will have to be frozen. I have looked on the internet and there are several methods . I would be most interested to peel, core and slice the apples and freeze them in that state so I can use them for many things in the months to come. The method that attracted me most was using ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) but when I went to enquire about buying this from the pharmacy, the price was €24 for 250 grammes ... a bit on the high side to freeze apples. I would be most interested to know what your successful method was. It seemed such a shame to let all the apples on the ground just go to waste, especially as they are really delicious.

I am sorry to ask but we were working at a farm near Missilac earlier this year, and the owner gave us some wine to try I think it was called chassanay, not Chardonay, any help really appreciated as it was a really good taste, thank you Chris

We are coming over to Brittany shortly and want to give our french neighbours xmas hampers containing "typical" english products that are not readily available in Brittany. So far, we have tea bags, clotted cream shortcake, westcountry chutney, real ale, xmas pudding. What do you miss that is unavailable here, that might fill my hamper? Thanks for any replies.
