Hi now is the time fro those of you who love this drink to make their own: the flowers are everywhere!4.5 litres of boiling water3kg sugar150g ish of citric acid; you can get it at most pharmacies60 flower heads washed and removed from all of the stalks if possible12 large lemons sliced7/8 large glass bottles with a firmly closing top (if you buy the cheapish trad lemonade at Carrefour then you get a free bottle to use!)Dissolve the sugar and citric acid in the boiling water and allow to cool (you need a very large bowl or storage box) (very important as the pollen of the flowers contains a natural yeast and if you dont cool the water then the yeast begins to fermant and you will have exploding bottles everywhere as I did one year!!)Add the sliced lemons and the flowers and then cover and leave to steep for 48hrsOnce steeped then filter through a muslin to remove the bit and bobs (I usually squeeze the lemons here to get as much juice as possible.Pour into sterilised bottles and store in a cool dark place. Will last around 3 months To serve dilute as for a sirop

Just planning an outing to Albi with some family members and wondered if anyone has any recommendations for good restaurants in Albi for lunch. Not looking for anything excessive on the price front, just a good mid-range eatery. Thanks in advance.

Hello,I would like to share this fantastic local product with you all !.My French neighbours they have a farm and they are running a Bio Beef business.They do the whole process from A to Z Bio so that means they grow the food for the cows and everything is from their land with no chemical or other products!I eat it now for a year and it is true i never had meat that taste so good.They have a website (in french) www.saveurlubia.fr (i made the site for them) where you can order their products.You can buy Boeuf 12.50 € kg and Veau 13.00 € kg.You can choose between 7 and 10 kg.So if you really want 100 % pure Bio beef Meat than this is the place ! they also deliver at home.

I have a guest staying in April who is medically restricted to alcohol-free beverages. He knows of German options for wine and beer ( Schlossgold,Clausthaler, Lowenbrau ) but not of French. Any recommendations for quality domestic product?

Hi We went to a Banquet de la chasse last weekend and had some beautiful Assiette de charcuterie de sanglier. Have never seen this in the shops and wondering where we could buy it. Didn't think to ask the locals but with such a treasure I am not sure if I would tell anyone. The terrine was good but the dry cured ham was exceptional.

Anybody any idea where I can buy individual butter portions at a reasonable price in catering quantities? Either in the little plastic pots or the folded paper version, I'm not fussy. I have surfed the french web in vain. Thanks.
