Hi everyone I've been living here just over 5 years I'm 29and a chef. I have trained with Tom kerridge and John Cambell and am currently  the sous chef at château de mirambeau. I have brought a restaurant  in Saintes and aim to be open on the 1st of October. What I would really like to know is is there enough of us brit here to do a Sunday lunch trade. And if you think yes just would really appreciate the feed back. Hope to hear back from you fellow expats. If you want any I found on my restaurant  i am more than happy to chat feel free to get in touch.

Hello everyone,I have managed to get most things I need from the supermarket, but margarine specifically for baking, has escaped me. The lady in my Intermarche was very helpful but the consistency seems to be high in fat.Is there a specific brand I can look for please?many thanks

Recently arrived back in the area to live, and saw an item about a new restaurant in Saintes with a chef trained by Tom Kerridge.  Is it open and if so can anyone tell me anything about it - i.e. the name and location would be a great help.  Many thanks.  Derek & Ann

Hi. I am searching for a jar of coconut oil. I've looked in a few large supermarkets to no avail. Has anyone seen it in the Ruffec/ La Rochfoucauld / Angouleme area? Thank you.

I'm looking at a recipe that calls for 5 spoonfuls of "liant" which translates as binder to make a sauce. What exactly do they mean? Would gravy powder do? Is there a French product that's better?

Does anyone know if/where you can buy bags of party ice here.  We live near Matha in the Charente Maritime but haven't spotted it at all at the supermarkets.  Any help gratefully appreciated.
