For the past thirty-odd Christmasses we've enjoyed a goose. They used to cost little more than turkeys (which we've always found rather bland) but now they've become fashionable, the price has soared. A 6.5 killogram bird cost me £75 in London this year, a price I really can't justify any longer, especially as my brother in New York picks one up at an Amish market for the equivalent of £20! As by this time next year we hope to be in Charente, I was wondering if anyone had an idea of how much they cost down there. Stephen, nr Cognac

Does anyone know where I can get a large(ish) turkey for our Christmas dinner. All our French neighbours' turkeys are much smaller than my mother in law is used to!! We are on the Deux-Sevres/Vendee border near L'Absie. Thanks in advance, Sarah

We have just visited the Fish and Chip shop in Lizant, Wow what a transformation! The new owners have made a huge difference, The interior has been decorated and tables put outside so you can enjoy your meal there. The food is much improved and there are daily specials. The new owners are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food is cooked to order, so no greasy dry rubbish! I would advise you to ring your order through as it does get busy. If you want a taste of home, go and eat there. It's not just chips, they do curries too! I give it 5 stars ***** . Anna C x

Hi, Does anyone (probably living in the country & preferably in the Vienne) know where I could find a decent-sized turkey for Christmas, please? By that I mean about 5-6kg at least? Our local supplier retired a few years back & I was in England last Christmas & so didn't have to worry about the turkey. 2 years ago I ordered a BIG turkey & found myself with a bird of about 3 kg - & was told that was the biggest they had!. I was brought up on turkey on Christmas Day, turkey salad or turkey sanwiches on Boxing Day, turkey pie, turkey risotto & turkey soup with the leftovers - but the French don't seem to see things that way unfortunately! Thanks for any help you may be able to offer! Scrabbler
