At the Sédouprat Xmas Fair the free roast chestnuts and mulled wine will now be served for the whole event (from 3) with all the other foods and gifts. Originally (as advertised), we were just going to serve mulled wine and chestnuts after 6 but the recent downpours and resulting mud will make night time parking a bit slow, so we thought by extending availability into daylight hours we would avoid any bottlenecks up the road. Thanks.Nick
Hi a couple of questions: 1. Does anyone know in the Trie Sur Baise area know of where you can get porridge oats other the small boxes in the supermarkets?2. Has anyone found and tried a good source of gluten free pasta? I have already tried the one option found in Eleclerc and it was terrible. Many thanks
Can anybody help please, we would like to make our own ham and we understand that requires soaking in a brine made up of special salts, we have consulted the internet and it keeps refering to these salts without any info as to how there are made or (in France) where we can buy them apart from saltpetre from the pharmacy without any clue as to what we do with it, as we do not want to make a porc bomb. Help!! Smiffy
Decent quality coffee beans are becoming harder to source in Gers supermarkets (Lavazza esp) - quite often no beans at all, just ground stuff. Brûlerie de Gascogne didn't impress with flavour or cost. Does anyone know of a good quality roaster who will send by mail? I tried Monmouth in London but they only service UK.
