Hello everyone, Next week is EG's birthday (not telling you how many years old, but old enough) and have decided that I definitely need to satisfy my overwhelming sushi craving that is driving me mad! Can someone out in Angloinfo land please provide me with a reccommendation for a good, varied, Japanese restaurant in Montpellier? We'll take the train in from Beziers, so it would be very helpful if it was connected/reached by tram. Thank you everyone for your help and advice. Regards, Elise

Hello I wonder if anyone else has noticed the effects of the current crisis as it effects the wine growers of the Languedoc and notably those who grow wine for the Cave Cooperatives. I have followed the growth of the Cooperative movement here in the Languedoc since its inception in the early party of the 1900's, to what I will describe as its demise, practically 100 years later and whilst the movement in general is still trying to maintain order against the onslaught of rentabilité, the seeming disarray of the Cave Cooperative system now appears a friendly outpost against a rising tide of profit at all costs. Events in the last few weeks in our area of the wine producing world will soon be reflected in all villages and towns whose principal activity in the past has centred around viticulture and the arrival will be quick and deadly not only for prices but also for quality and understanding. No longer will the Coops be regarded as a typical example of a way of life which was to go on forever ,now the profit and bottom line are the priordial driving forces behind those imposing structures . Some may regard the advances as part of the inevitble encroachment of bank style profits as the just desserts for hard pressed vignerons but they will be under no illusion after the recption of this weeks mail that the profit will remain in the hands of those larger groups who have been bankrolling the cash payouts since Christmas but all this comes at a cost and local control of simple events no longer resides with the local controllers who quite often were virgins in the forests of wealth Big industrial groups of producers will try to rival the unique buying powers of the supermarkets by holding out for the best prices and they should have an impact in the long term. Reasoned commerce will need to be the answer in the years to come but many growers will fall by the wayside and villages will be striven in two because growers who remain with the old sytem of exploitation will come head to head with growers whose only concern is to rasie grapes clean and so pesticide ridden the inevitable contamination and publication on the reverse of the label will cause people to stop drinking such polutants. In this forum I hope to find out the opinions of others in the same circumstances, who have an actif part in their Coop but are struggling to get a return for the effort expended. I can name at least five growers with small parcelles who will be forced to consider their possession of vineyards because ergonomically they are not able to comply with the cahier des charges imposed from an absentee landlord.If you are interested and have comments to make I would be pleased to discuss them - SaludPeter J Finn

Hi, Does anyone know of a Chinese supermarket in/around Narbonne or Carcassonne. I've found a good one in Perpignan, purely by chance when passing, but would like one a little closer - we live in the north Corbieres. Any suggestions?

Just watching Daily Cooks Challenge and the chef has said he's added the above , now to me what he added looked like fine French beans ? Aren't mange tout the small flat beans used in stir fry ? Do they call any young bean that can be cooked and eaten whole mange tout ?

We will be in France over the New Year. Our place is half way bewteen Quillan and St Paul De F. Can anyone recommend somewhere to go on new Years Eve. We had a great time in a lovely restaurant last year but it will not be open this time around. Ideally we'd like to go somewhere that is putting on a special evening but accept there are few choices. However perhaps you know different! Thank youSue

Planning to stay at St. Cyprien-Plage for a week over Christmas and wondered if anyone can recommend a restaurant or two that will be open at that time of year. Would there be a restaurant open on Christmas day?

The business has been built up over three years and is on target to achieve a turnover of €50,000 this year.

Serious interested parties are invited to telephone for an appointment to discuss further details of the sale. Tel. no. 04 68 40 97 11
