Bought a fish on our local market, labelled as "Maigre". The fishmonger speaks a bit of English so I asked him  for a translation, and he came back with "Meagre", must be a new variety! Our little food dictionary doesn't mention the name, does anyone know what it is, please? It's a bit like bass in looks and taste - very pleasant.

I searched for it in several supermarkets  over the weekend for a nice recipie with the salmon.... but could not find any. Did I just go on a bad day or where is it placed in the shops? Definitely not in amongst the prawns etc etc.

Hi, does anyone know of an outlet for free range pork in the Poitou-Charentes?  Preferably within an hour or so of Ruffec. Thanks, Kevin

Can anybody please tell me if there's any truth in the rumour I heard-that the Auberge St.Jean in Nanteuil-en-Vallée has re-opened ? Many thanks in anticipation.

Anyone know if this is available at any of the supermarkets within, say,  a 25 k radius of Rouillac? I want it for a prawn and smoked salmon dish. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I have just cleared out a little-used store cupboard and discovered right at the back two tinned, Fray Bentos steak & kidney pies and a tinned FB steak and kidney pudding. None of he tins shows any sign of deterioration or leakage but the sell by date on all three is 2001! I am not a strong believer in the SBD system for some foodstuffs as I personally believe it is simply a ploy whereby manufacturers try to scare us into discarding perfectly edible food. Tins in particular should be OK for a considerable period of time and, indeed, examples have been found containing safely edible, contents after many years storage. We are not starving so whether or not to eat the contents is not that important but I would value the opinion of others as to the "eat or discard" debate.

Several years ago, we and some friends had a very good and inexpensive lunch at the college which was prepared and served by students as part of their examinations. Does anyone know if this practice of inviting the general public to be guinea pigs is still being carried out and when? I seem to remember it cost around 6-7€ per head including wine!

I would like to help a family coffee shop by making home made soups for them to sell as well as well unbaked desserts. I already have a commercial health and hygiene certificate from the UK and am not looking to make any money from this. They supply the ingredients and I make it! What certificates/qualifications do I need in order to do this? many thanks for your help.

Does anyone know if you can get undyed smoked fish here, either cod or haddock ? I've only ever seen the bright yellow dyed fillets.

Bonjour everbody,I would like to contact/meet up with anyone who would be very motivated in getting involved in a radio project. The creation of an Anglophone Community Radio in Charente. A local radio service for Anglophones living in or visiting the Charente, with local & national news, current affairs, lifestye/leisure etc etc etc, to make living in the Charente easier and even more enjoyable ! It won't be an easy task and will involve creating and runnning an association,looking for funds, authorisiations, insurance, equipment, locale/building, volunteers, advertisers and a million other things that will keep us occupied ! But with the right people "On peut le faire" ! All comments are welcome - I can also be contacted via email :  radioproject@proxitele.fr Cheerio, Dara
