Hi, I want to host a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner for my friends, but I'm having trouble finding the food I need. I was at Carrefour today and could not get a turkey or find cranberry sauce or eggnog. I'm most concerned about the turkey. Where can I buy a turkey?

Hi!Does anyone know if there is a place in Lyon where I can buy cheddar cheese?I have eaten it in some restaurants here in Lyon so I know it exists - I am just not sure about whether you can find it in a shop or buy it. Also does any shops in Lyon sell cadbury chocolates? I know there are shops here that sell imported goods from USA but not from the UK. Cheers in advance :)

My husband is a chef and we are having great difficulty in finding a supplier over here for dried pitted dates so that he can make "sticky toffee pudding". We would rather buy over here than have friends and family increase their baggage allowance with our 5kg demand of dates!!. If anyone out there know of somewhere to buy this product we would be grateful to hear from you. Many thanks.

Hi all, just found a great market this week with the novel twist been that it opens just in the afternoons!!!! Its held at quai Victor Augagneur every Thursday from 3 pm until 7pm and sells all the usual fresh produce with a good choice of around 30 stallholders. Great for picking up things after work

Hi all I have a recipe for a cheesecake which requires I use sour cream, I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to get that here in France and wondered if something like Ribot would be a suitable alternative. Or if you have any other suggestions I would be most grateful. Many thanks.

With my thoughts turning to Xmas and in particular one of my fav tipples for the festive period, has anyone seen any sherry in the shops or if not is there a palatable French equivalent?
