France Culinary Travel Diary – Intro
I wanted to do something different on the blog for the next few weeks, which is to turn it into a diary of my travels through France, with a culinary twist of course! The Madame and I are starting in Aix-en-Provence, moving west through,Marseille, Montpellier, Carcassonne and Toulouse, and then north through the amazing Dordogne region, Bordeaux, Poitiers, Orléans and ending in the City of Lights, Paris.
I’ll be trying to find the favourite local haunts and the best coffee, both short blacks, which are the standard order in France and lattés (to satisfy the Madame who dreads the “café au lait”). I’ll also be highlighting regional dishes from along the route and where I can, whip up a little something in the kitchen.
