Hello,I live in Vaison la Romaine and work in the wine field. I would love to find or start a wine tasting group or club to get together once every so often to taste and discuss wine. We could even make it a supper club and do a meal! Is there anyone out there who'd be interested?Thanks,Bryan
We live in Theoule-sur-Mer near Mandelieu and this is our first Christmas in France. does anyone know where I can buy a good turkey? We are driving down from the channel tunnel on the 21st -22nd of Decemebwe so we could pick one up along the way too. Please help!
i am wanting to purchase a slow cooker but When researching there is so many to choose from, obviously cheaper from UK but interested to know any recommendations, brands etc, would prefer a big enough one to do a pot roast etc and one that I can brown in. Looks like it's cheaper to buy in UK even with postage.
In meandering the streets of Aups I came across a small shop on the main throughroad called "gare du nord". They sell all kinds of Dutch specialities and Dutch cheeses and pasta (ravioli and other varieties) from somewhere in the Var. Looks nice, owners are friendly, prices ok. They said they would open all year round so that's nice to know especially in winter, when everything around there shuts down.
Hi Does anybody know of those rustic country style restaurants around Aix-en-Provence? This kind of substantial wholesome meal was mentioned in Peter Mayle's book A Year in Provence. Also, any wineris around open for tasting at this time of the year? Cheers
Hello, I'm trying to prepare my first christmas at home. I would like to make my own christmas pudding as I want my (french) boyfriend to get a taste of traditional british christmas time and of course, I miss these little things. Unfortunately, I have no idea where I could get a pudding bowl. I live in Marseille and I don't drive so if you know of anywhere in Marseille, that would be perfect. Also, if anyone in Marseille has an extra pudding bowl they wouldn't mind selling, I would be very interested. Thank you very much :)
For those who would like an occasional change away from the usual fizzy lager served in most bars, and who are tired of the watery "English" beers served in the "instant pubs" that dot Marseille's Vieux Port area, there is now an alternative. The "Cane-Bière" has a range of bottled beers including British (Hobgoblin, London Pride [on order] Whitbread Pale, Brew Dog...) and North American (there's even some Norwegian beers). There is also a huge choice of Belgian and lesser-known French beers. If the demand is there, the owner says he is willing to get other beers in. It's a shop, but you can drink on the premises (whatever is in the cooler). They also have two guest beers on draught. (There is also some Old Speckled Hen at the time of posting). It's at 32 Boulevard Philippon, next to the Palais Longchamp (100 yards from the 5 Avenues tram and metro). I am also informed that a brewery has opened at La Plaine. More info when available.
