Dordogne

Following on from my first post on our June trip to the Dordogne

Every single morning during the holiday we went to a market to buy ingredients for our meals that day.  I know this is probably unsustainable for real everyday life, but gosh I loved it.

I didn’t have to meal plan ahead, I didn’t ever once write a shopping list, we just turned up and made up dinner based on what we fancied.  As you will see the first few days of our holiday the weather was minging – so much rain and grey skies!

Chateau l'Eveque market

This (above) was the little market in nearby Chateau l’Eveque, about 3 or 4 stalls, we went to the veg man and bought amongst other things some incredible wrinkly tomatoes (sorry no pictures – was trying to avoid getting soaked – lots more food pictures to come later though I promise!), a punnet of fragrant strawberries and a melon.

I’m not a melon fan, but in France I adore melons they are so much tastier – our experience in the Loire was when you went to buy a melon from a market stall they would ask you if it was to eat today or later, and find you the best one.

Pain au chocolat

We also went to the bakery for breakfast and got croissants (for me) and pain au chocolat (for Mr Rigg) – these rated quite highly in the taste test.  We determined to find out the best bakery in the area for breakfast goodies and we found our favourite – details below.
