I had a friend who used to do something with walnuts, where they were sugared, or salted/roasted. I can't actually remember but they were delicious and she always kept a jar of them.As I have plenty of walnuts, I wonder what other people do with them. I have pickled them and still have jars, but would love some ideas now they are dropping off the tree
Just wanted to recommend a really good Indian restaurant in Quimper, I know that there are always Brits looking for a good curry but don't often see them recommended in this area. The waiter spotted we were English and not only was able to speak to us in English, but also asked us if we would like our food spicy, saying that the French are not so keen on it! (Can't think what the point of having a curry is if its not spicy - but each to their own!). All dishes were exactly the right amount of heat and utterly delicious, fresh ingredients and very tender meat. Its called The Mahraja and is on the main road next to the river, opposite Cafe des Arts. If you, like we are, are curry fanatics you won't be disappointed.
I've just come back from Dinan with a friend where we tried out the new English run Cafe - it was on recommendation and can highly recommend it myself - so thought I'd do a quick posting on here for anyone wanting to try somewhere new... It's in the little pedestrian bit behind the Clock Tower (either just off the Rue Horloge or just behind the Place du Marche) - family run and very friendly doing light lunches (8.90 for a good coffee, Mozarella & Tomato/pepper tarte & Salad and a great slice of Bakewell), they do a range of coffees, teas and great cakes (including carrot cake and coffee cake!) - they're open every day Tuesday- Sunday... bon appetit!

Its been a very good grape season this year I've found. Last year had none, i think there was something going around about no grapes last year, I certainly had none. What can I do with them. They are almost ripe, many of the individual grapes are. If this rain and cool weather continue, they will rot, so does anyone have any ideas ?
We have had really good food in this newly opened, unpretentious, french owned place opposite the Marie in Plestin les Greves. A plat du jour and desert mid-day and evenings. This Fri its morrocan tagine cous-cous. Its called La Tour de Pizz's, open every day except Wednesdays. We found it quite by accident when all else was closed or 'no food this late!', and had fantastic moules frittes and endless sauce which just kept arriving. The family are so friendly, wife doing all the cooking, they really deserve to succeed. I wish to emphasis I am unconnected to this establishment. Just wanted to let anyone know. Their tel is 0296 54 12 36.
