    Stunning photos, Mardi. If I close my eyes, I’m almost there…

    The chickens are funny – I feel guilty for laughing.
    These pics are lo-ve-ly.

    I really hope we get a chance to rendezvous in France, Mardi. It’s a TRADITION. These pictures remind me why this place – and especially the people – have become so important to me. It really has nothing to do with the rosé! It’s the laughs and creativity. And, well, the food. On which point, I think that pic of the mushrooms (and is it socca?) has inspired me to feature something similar on my supperclub menu this April. Not sure if I can do it as well as Kate but I can try!

      Yes, it’s socca and yes, I hope we get to see each other again too!

    I have recently moved to Gascony Avenue in London, U.K, So I thought to do a little research on Gascony online and it lead me here… Wonderful photos Mardi, Thank you for sharing. And now I simply have to visit the area.

      Ah you’ll have to get to Gascony, France some day – it’s magical!
