OK, that's about the extent of my French - it's about as good as my Hindi.
So here we are in Provence, in the South of France. The sun is shining, we are staying on a delightful converted lavender farm and I can't stop eating. Oh the things I have been missing! All types of smelly cheeses, hams, French baguettes, fresh cream cakes and real beef steaks with frites. It's heaven!
We passed through Aix-en-Provence on the way to our cottage, stopping at a farmer's market. I took so many photos of wonderful French delicacies - images that I can drool over when I'm back in Mumbai (not to say that I am not already missing curry, dhal and chicken malai kebabs of course!)
Here is a little 'taster' of what I have been suffering...
|The biggest mushrooms you have ever seen! (Ceps)|
|Not sure the vegetables can beat Pali market - but so good to have fresh, clean salad|
|Pots of chocolate|
|Freshly hewn lavender - so fragrant!|
|Colourful macaroons - although I doubt they can surpass Mumbai's very own Le15 Patisserie|
|Pain au chocolat, croissants, etc|
|No-one does a tart like the French!|
|Adorable packaging for these sweets|
|More colour - traditional Marseillaise soaps|
|French cheeses for breakfast (I think a little mouse may have been down in the middle of the night to have a nibble at them ;)|
Come back later when I will be posting pictures of our cute Provencal cottage...it's so beautiful here!
Thanks for stopping by my little piece of heavenly France.
