A gorgeous sunny and even warm day. Quite a foodie day. Started with Kouglof for breakfast, a breadlike cake (or is it a cakelike bread?) that is eaten cold. Bea cooked it last night and it was delicious!
We then headed off to the Market at Lunel, a 15 minute drive away. There was the usual array of cheap clothes and shoes, kitchen gadgets and knick-knacks. As well as a stand selling live chickens, ducks and rabbits. But in amongst all that was also the food stalls selling pastries and herbs.
We then went further into the village to the more permanent food market. All sorts of exciting foods on offer: olives of various types in ceramic urns, cheeses, sausages, fish and shellfish, fruits and vegetables. Some the same as we see in NZ but plenty of other more exotic offerings as well.
Came home to a feast. Olives, pickled anchovies, octupus salad and tapenads for entree, roast pork with mushrooms and curried vegetables for the main course and strawberries for dessert, all washed down with a delicious red wine. Waddled away from the table and sat by the pool for the afternoon.
More tonight...and I must finish my bottle of champagne before I head off to Toulon tomorrow!
