I had a successful cake business in the UK before retiring to the Dordogne. I would like to offer homemade cakes (and Christmas cakes) and wondered if there were any particular rules and regs here prior to setting up? Any advice greatly received as only just moved here.

Apartfrom serving it with custard, cream or cheese, has anyone got any good ideas for how to use up Christmas cake?

Is it possible to have fresh oysters delivered from the coast to Pau?  I bought some in the supermarket last year and put them in the fridge for later that day.  When I took them out they smelt horrible so am lacking in trust as far as supermarket oysters are concerned.

Does anyone know where I might get a fresh, properly sized turkey instead of one of those chicken type things in the supermarkets?  Maybe from a farm?  Or can they be shipped from the UK.  If so, by whom?

Does anyone have a good recipe for gluten free bread?  One that doesnt turn out like cardboard and is not wholly reliant on maize?  I saw a TV chef make some once and he added a lot of liquid but I cant remember his name - he is married to the TV presenter who lost all the weight (blonde) and there was a bit of a hoo haaa about how she did it.  Unfortunately I cant remember her name either.

Can someone please explain why the more expensive chickens are often the toughest?  Sometimes the cheap ones are pretty tasteless but they are usually moist and somehow easier to eat.  Maybe I am looking at this all wrong but I just want to be able to buy a tasty chicken at a reasonable price.

Has anyone tried a French alternative to buttermilk in a recipe and did it turn out ok?

Does anyone know where I can buy a cake guillotine like the one shown last night on the Great British Bake Off?  A really good cookery utensil shop may have one I guess but I don't have one of those near me either.

Are you missing your favourite beer, or spirit, or cocktail mix or wine?  Well, I have found a Co, in the UK who seem to have just about everything available in all categories  and are able to ship to France on a very competitive basis...e.g. I have just ordered  6 x 1 ltre bottles of the real Margarita Mix (not the ready made up stuff) and the postage was only just over £10 which I think is great....and the price of the product was ridiculous! I ordered yesterday and it is out for delivery from the UK and due to be delivered on Monday next 21st July. Cant of course recommend them fully till the delivery turns up of course...l Email me if you are interested as cannot post recommendations on Co. on the site.
