I drove through confolens last night 6pm and couldn't believe my eyes the fish and chip shop is finally open. It's called the friterie. I met the new owners and had a nice conversation whilst I waited a very short time for my meal. jumbo sausage in batter yum yum. there were four of us so we tried alot of different meals on the menu. jumbo sausage (english sausages) savaloy, pukka pie, sausage roll and a piece of cod all with chips. Absoulutly delicious.

Does anyone know where we can buy the above. We are quite happy to buy a whole beast for the freezer. Note, we do want Kid, but a full grown beast. Perhaps a female too old for mothering. We can organise the butchering if necessary, but not the despatching

I'm looking for non-gourmet easter eggs. More chocholate and bright colours, than and artisitc impression of mans struggle in modern society. Prices more like Lidl than the Louvre.

For anyone who misses their take a way curry then Friday nights is curry take a way night at Le Cafe Portebleu in Verteuil in the Charente. The curries are all home made and so are the naan breads, there is a choice of plain naans or pershwari's. The curry's change every week so there is always something different. Very good value for money especially the curry bag for 20 euros which contains 2 curries, rice, 2 nanns, poppodoms, riata and indian chutney. Phone up to place an order or send an email 05 45 30 22 06 curry@portebleue.com This is not my business, I am just spreading the word as I know curries are very popular, and these home-made ones are not to be missed. Bon Appetite Nina

Hi All We are very interested to hear anyone's thoughts on finding or buying Home Reared Beef, would you prefer to but direct form the Farm knowing that the animal your going to eat has had a Good "all be it short life" if so then we would love to hear from you please e-mail me your thoughts and concerns etc. More and more people are looking at the way animals are reared for food and not the just the cost, Bio is very expensive and as times are hard we all have to cut our cloth accordingly. Here's hoping you all have lot's to say on this subject. Regards S.

Hi ! Does anyone know where (preferably in the Saintes/Mirambeau region, I can buy just a turkey crown ??? We are out most of Christmas, and as there will be only two of us for dinner on Christmas day, I cannot go without my turkey - but I am not of a mind to make endless sandwiches, stews, stock, etc etc !!! - Paid 50 euros for a turkey a few Christmases ago, which for just two is I think very expensive !!!! Any suggestions please (not rude ones !!!) Cheers !
