And so for my last blog from Provence(sniff, sniff)…I am reminiscing about some of the highlights from this year’s trip to Provence which started with a meal out in on the first night in an auberge called La Bastide Bleue just at the base of the perched village of Seguret. What a perfect way to start the trip…it had the prettiest courtyard, with a canopy of trees and fairylights. The restaurant was like the essence of Provence- a menu that was written on a blackboard with only three or four choices of main course based on what was available and good at the market that day, bijou tablecloths, pretty blue shutters and the sound of the cicadas. The meal was a typical taste of the terroir- I had a local goats cheese tart followed by a duck leg confit and finished off with chocolate fondant. Good, honest homemade food.
I can’t wait to go back to Provence next year and smell the lavender, visit the markets, eat the produce straight off the trees and drink the local wines. If you are interested in experiencing all this, go to www.atableprovence.com
