Tarn et Garonne in Pictures


The last few days at Kathryn's have been amazing. Certainly it is both a cultural and educational experience. How wonderful it has been to pick fresh figs from her trees each day and to feed the horses apples straight from the orchard. I've even had the chance to 'put the chickens to bed' at night. I had no idea that chickens had to be put to bed...it's protection from foxes.

Today we had cooking lessons from the fabulous Daniel de la Falaise and yesterday we enjoyed a lakeside picnic on his property. Later this week I will post the recipe for the amazing carrot and tarragon soup from our day in the kitchen. Truly this is a magical part of the world.

What a magnificent experience Ronda. Great cooking, fine food, beauty in nature, good conversation, good wine. You won't want to return to the rains of Scotland. Enjoy your last moments.

My Father grew up on a farm and his job was to tuck the chickens in. He still speaks about it with such affection.
