Last week Royal Gala Apples were on offer in the Intermarche in Rostenen for 1.19 a kg. But when I checked my receipt later I noiced I was charged 1.99 a kg. At the weekend I bought some more and again they were marked as on offer at 1.19 but when the cashier put them through they came up as 1.99. Today they had gone up to 1.84 a kg and quess what I was still charged 1.99 a kg.  Unbelievable.

I was given a large bag of apples last week so set about looking for recipes. I came across this one and it is absolurely delicious. If you only make one apple dessert this year make this one: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/recipes/10388012/Signe-Johansens-Swedish-apple-and-almond-pudding.html   Bon appetit.

Is there an outlet that sells bulk / discount quantities of groceries in Finisterre or Morbihan, better still Morlaix to Carhaix area? I don't mean like Costco UK. I have seen such outlets overseas that cater for retail suppliers or organisations that need to buy in bulk quantities.

Why do so many younger French people eat with their knife and fork in the "wrong" hands? I only became aware of this when sitting opposite a left-handed friend at lunch and thinking how awkward it looked. Then I noticed most of the people in the restaurant who were under about 30 years old were doing the same. Has anyone else noted this curious phenomenon? Or are the "lefties" finally taking over the world?

I am running a bit of a risk here - there are bound to people out there who will take issue with this post, but I'll take that risk, so here goes. Someone in France said to me many years ago - don't eat the middle section of a baguette (or similar) if offered, and only eat the ends. Why, I asked. He replied - well it depends on who bought it and where. If it was at the supermarket - probably no problem, but if the man of the house either walked or cycled to the local boulangerie to get the bread, it is highly likely the baguette will go under his left armpit to be carried home - either so he can steer his bike or if walking, to leave his right hand free to greet his friends and neighbours on the way back. I do now make a mental note of the number of times I see baguettes being carried this way - it's more frequent than I originally thought.

Hi All Have decided to go totally traditional this year with Turkey etc but that means making a Christmas pudding for first time in years.  I like the Delia recipe but it calls for Barley Wine which I doubt I will get here.  Googled it and apparently strong German beer can be used as a substitute.  As I don't like beer and consequently know nothing about it can anyone suggest something that I could buy in Intermarche which would do the job? Stout is easy as I will just use Guinness. By the way it's an excellent recipe if anyone else fancies trying it.
