The culinary vacation program Mary Pochez and I are collaborating on had its first test drive this week at her château, La Barbée, in the Pays Loire. Several Paris-based food and travel writers arrived on Tuesday for a friendly overnight taste of the program—and a real-life taste of Mary’s delicious cooking. On Wednesday morning they went to the market in La Flêche to pick up some fruits and vegetables and other ingredients for dinner. Carol Gillott describes their adventure in her lovely blog Paris Breakfasts.
From dinner by the fire in the château to the pear tart they made for dessert, Carol’s post takes you on a virtual tour of the program-in-progress. Read all about it at ParisBreakfasts-la-vie-du-chateau-de-la-barbee.
NoNoJulia will continue to report on further developments—and recipes—from Chateau La Barbée.
