Hi, I have been asked for some cheese to take back to the uk, but it's for vegetarians, I know I've seen on uk suprrmarket packs " suitable for vegetarians" , but I can't quite imagine french cheese producers worrying about it. So can you tell me what makes a vegetarian cheese, and does anyone know of any types suitable. Thanks if you can help. Divaling.
I would just like to say that we visited this restaurant over the weekend and yet again we had a lovely meal. Luckily we had booked a table as they were full. Did feel like a fool when I complemented the waitress on her english to be told "I am english", I'd heard her laughing and joking with some clientele in French so assumed she was. The main thing she told me as we left, as we took some business cards for our bites, was that if our guests would like to book a table but don't speak French was to leave a message in english as either her or her boss, who is French and speaks some english. Also if you need gluten free crepes let them know when you book and her boss would make up a special mix for you. Thought I'd pass that on. Oh one other thing, felt like a true blonde when I asked what PDT was. It's potatoes!
Hi Folks, I just love learning how to shop for groceries all over again since moving to France. I think I made my first major mistake, and I'm hoping someone can tell me what on earth I have purchased.... LOL I went to the butcher's counter in E. Leclerc and asked for what I thought was natural sausage casings (Boyau de Sauicisse). He showed them to me before sealing them up in the meat bags, and I thought hmmmm... ok, must be they way they are prepared here. When I took them out of the pouch at home, they are very salted (like salted cod) and about a metre long. The "meat" is white "shredded" but all in one continuous length. What have I purchase???? It wasn't cheap either!!!
We are going to Saint Malo for New Year, can anyone recommend any places to eat or a nice bar etc? We are staying in the walled city so anywhere within walking distance. Does anyone know if there are fireworks etc as I can not find any information online!
Hi Does anyone out there know where I might be able to buy small cellophane bags - the type that you would usually use to package sweets or chocolates. Usually order them on internet but have only just realised I haven't got enough. I live in Callac so somewhere nearby would be helpful. Thanx
Hi, sorry bit tedious but.................... I cant seem to get my potatoes to roast. and getting me frustrated I need recommendations for which type of potatoes you buy and from where. I have all the basics for temperatures, roughing up, sprinkling in this and that, done it for years I had an awful nasty oven whilst renovating, churned out perfect roast potatoes and now with this fan thing they are a disaster.!!! Merci
Does anyone know if Carrefour at St Brieuc is open on Christmas eve? I think there was a sign up last week to say it would be closed both 24/12 and 31/12 but maybe I just missed seeing that it closed early or the like? I'm pretty sure that it's always been open 24/12 before. Can't find anything on the website so...did I just imagine the notice on the door??! Also does anyone know if there will be markets at Lamballe and Dinan on 24/12 as Thuirsday is their usual market day? Judi
