Mostly, but not entirely, about cooking, eating, drinking, markets, festivals, exploring and glorying in life in general in this lesser-known part of France (and in other parts of the planet).

The Biggest Tomato I've Ever Seen.
No hidden thumbs on the scales. Honest. Weighing in at a whopping 690 g (roughly one-and-a-half pounds if you don't do metric) is this colossal tomate that I bought at Friday's market. That photogenic drop of tomato "blood"? That's because I sliced off the bottom of the tomato before I remembered I hadn't weighed it.
Sliced, dripped with olive oil, and with a sprig of basil on top: this was the salad we had with today's lunch of baguette and pâté.
