Hello. Dies anyone know of any restaurants open on Christmas Day either in Perpignan or surrounding villages that may have space for 2 people. Ideally something traditional where locals would go and with entertainment.....and possibly cooking on an open fire. Any suggestions welcome as I appreciate it is short notice. Thank you
Bonjour, we are a husband and wife team with 8 years experience of managing and chefing in successful restaurants across France. We are searching for a small restaurant or chambre d'hotes in the Languedoc to rent or buy.Prefer the Herault or Gard area however would consider further afield for the right property.many thanks
Hi, We are looking for a wedding caterer for our June 2017 wedding. We're a London based couple but getting married in the Languedoc-Roussillon, not far from Aiguèze. We'll have around 90-95 guests, and want an informal buffet style afternoon meal with a hog roast in the evening. Thanks, Tim
It's that time of year again! Was in Ceret a couple of weeks ago and bought a pack, (but normally we get it at G20 in Carcassonne, however they told me they do not have it). We need some more for mincemeat. Anyone spotted any on shelves local to Carcassonne or Narbonne? Thanx in anticipation.
Hi I would really love to get my hands on a large plump Christmas Turkey this year. I have managed for over a decade on the smaller French varieties available here buying one or two depending on numbers, but surely now there must be British Turkery rearers who ship from UK or who rear in France. Any information or advice gratefully received, thank you. Jane
Hi folks, We are ablel to almost fully recreate an Irish Christmas here in the south of France by importing things (mince meat, cadbury's chocolate, Christmas pudding etc.) from places like Britishonlinesupermarket.com. However, there is one thing that I fail to crack year after year and that's a whole ham. I simply can't think of a way of getting it here without going to Ireland or the UK and bringing it back with me somehow. To be clear about what I am looking for... a whole ham joint, cured but not cooked. I believe I could order the correct piece of raw pork (leg joint) but it wouldn't be cured and I'm wary of doing this myself (we'll have guests for Christmas and I don't want to experiment too much ). The closest I can come is jarret or palette but these cuts simply don't do it for me - I want the real deal. Anyone any ideas? I'm willing to travel. Cheers, Jody
